Unshackled VC 2021 Fall University Fellows Application Open!
Are you a current University student who is either looking to start a company, join a high-growth startup or learn more about VC investing? We’d love to hear from you.
At Unshackled we are bullish on students as founders and funders and are excited to announce applications are open for our fourth class of University Fellows. Venture is often celebrated as an industry built on the apprenticeship model, and we want to increase immigrant students’ access to the collective knowledge of our fund and our networks.
This year-long fellowship will include classroom-style sessions 📚 , diligence research projects 🔍 , opportunities to co-publish articles and market maps, and opportunities to connect with a growing community of students and recent grads. 🚀
We believe that our program is best for students that are looking to gain a comprehensive understanding of early-stage venture and what it looks like to work with high-growth startups. (Note: This is not a scout program or an incubator.)
For the 2021/2022 school year, we are looking for a class of current university students who are able and willing to join scheduled calls between 9 AM — 5 PM PST. As we open up access to capital for immigrant entrepreneurs, we’d like to do the same for those 1st and 2nd generation immigrants students currently working from their dorm rooms and bedrooms all over the world — check out what some of our former fellows are currently up to here and here!
This opportunity is best for students that are thinking about a career in product, growth, partnerships, VC, or are hungry to be an entrepreneur. We welcome undergrad and grad students to apply.
About Unshackled Ventures
Unshackled is an early-stage fund for immigrant-led companies. Since launching in 2015, our strategy has been simple — invest with high conviction as close to formation as possible, provide full immigration support, including visa sponsorship and access to influential networks to level the playing field. The result? We source from our own pie and unlock big upside in strong teams with immigrant founders. The fund manages over $30M in AUM, has made 60+ investments in companies now valued at over $1.3B and completed over 170 immigration filings with a 100% success.
