Description:
Lightspeed Venture Partners Summer Fellowships

Earn up to $65k this summer to build your startup at Lightspeed!
Are you an aspiring entrepreneur looking for more than an internship this
summer? How about getting quality time with some of the investors behind
companies like Snapchat, Nest, Whisper, TaskRabbit and GrubHub? Follow in the
footsteps of the founders of Crittercism, Pinterest, Pulse, Sourcegraph and
Lark. Lightspeed Venture Partners is now accepting applications for its 2017
Summer Fellowship Program.

The program combines a scholarship and an entrepreneurial boot camp all
rolled into 10 weeks - we provide funding, office space, mentorship and a
platform so you can spend your summer devoted to entrepreneurship and
launching your idea into a company. Now in its 11th year, with over 250
alumni, the program is designed to enable young, technology savvy
entrepreneurs to work full-time with the guidance of seasoned venture
capitalists and other successful founders on building all aspects of a
business from the ground up.

Each team member will receive $15,000 and each team will receive $5,000 in
discretionary funds.  Lightspeed provides free office space, an
entrepreneurship series designed to help new founders quickly get up to speed
on building a startup, and a series of mentors and connections to get
started.  Fellows are under NO OBLIGATION to Lightspeed and we receive NO
EQUITY as part of the program.

Applications are due Friday, Mar. 17.
