What are the different options for Placements in the summer?

This year we are piloting a partnership with a handful of mission-aligned VC funds who will each host two summer fellows. The partner funds are either:

General Partners: Managers of capital who invest in technology startups.

Or 

Limited Partners: Allocators of capital who invest in Venture Capital Funds.

In addition to a fund placement, a few fellows will be staffed on a smart cities initiative. There is a designation field in the application for this placement. This is a collaborative effort involving four Kapor Capital portfolio companies spanning climate, payments and workforce development.

Is this internship remote, hybrid or in-person?

We are closely monitoring public health updates and will inform candidates as we come to a decision.

Currently, Fellows can be placed with partner funds in either the Bay Area or New York City. Many partner funds have a hybrid working environment. We anticipate programming to include both a mix of virtual meetings and in person events.
