City Fellowship

APPLICATIONS:Are now open! Apply until December 4 for the City Fellowship.

The City Fellowship at Company Ventures supports New York City-based social entrepreneurs. The 6-month fellowship is offered in partnership with NYCEDC to leverage VC networks acumen in support of historically marginalized entrepreneurs who are solving entrenched challenges for New Yorkers. The program is focused on deep impact more so than the speed of growth or scale, with a commitment to economic equity and climate justice.


If you missed our info session on 11/9, contact us at cityfellowship@companyventures.co for access to the recording and Q&A.
