Fellows (AKA potential co-founders) per cohort
When we opened applications for the inaugural Visible Hands Fellowship, over 900 people from 40 countries applied. From that exceptional pool, we’ve selected 51 Fellows.
Our inaugural cohort is composed of incredible founders from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. They will come together this Fall to build and scale their companies with Visible Hands.
This full-time, virtual-first fellowship will allow you to test out business ideas with a diverse cohort of talented people who are looking to launch tech companies.
Upon admission into the fellowship, you will receive a $25,000 upfront investment to enable you to work full-time on building your startup. After the 14-week fellowship, you will also have the opportunity to pitch your company to our Investment Advisory Committee for additional funding of up to $175k.
We aim to bring together a diverse cohort of talented people - builders, technologists, industry experts, and community leaders. We will support you in finding the right co-founder(s) who will be just as driven and committed as you.
Throughout the 14 weeks, we will help you to develop and refine an idea. You may or may not come in with a clear picture of what you want to build, but either way, we will support you in finding and validating a business idea — then executing on it.
You will gain lifetime access to our diverse national network of 500+ industry experts, successful entrepreneurs, and experienced investors who will support you in developing your idea and building your business.
You’ll have access to the right tools for your business from leading partners in the startup ecosystem.
Our fellowship is virtual-first to allow you to work from anywhere - no relocation required.
Fellows will unlock the opportunity for an additional investment of up to $175k from Visible Hands.
You will be part of an amazing group of fellows to support you through the up and downs of starting a company.
Visible Hands is focused on bringing together exceptional underrepresented talent from across the U.S. to build venture-backable companies.
We are focused on investing in diverse talent. This includes women, non-binary people, and Black, Latinx, or Indigenous American people.
We assess individuals, not teams or ideas. Our fellowship will help you build your team and develop your business idea.
We are seeking builders, technologists, industry experts, and community leaders who are ready to jump in and build a tech company.
