City Fellowship

The City Fellowship at Company Ventures is a 6-month program 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 action.

Details and Criteria

You are a NYC-based, tech-forward entrepreneur who is working to provide thoughtful solutions and improvements for the quality of life in NYC.

You may be leading a for-profit or nonprofit, small business, or tech startup – all are welcome.

Early stage operators are encouraged to apply – must show preliminary traction through revenue, fundraising, team development or other means.

Preference for those who are doubling down on economic equity and/or climate action.

You are willing to commit to 5 hours each month for hybrid events, engage with our North Star Program focused on values-based leadership, and participate in our CUNY internship program.

Company Ventures is excited to partner with NYCEDC and Amazon to make this program possible. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about partnership opportunities. Applications for the next cohort will open in October 2022.
