The Halogen Fellowship in Venture Capital is a summer fellowship focused on gender dynamics and addresses the lack of equity, diversity and funding in venture capital.

About The Program

The Halogen Fellowship in Venture Capital aims to train exceptional undergraduate and graduate students in venture capital and to create more opportunities for young students from all backgrounds to become investors. Halogen started this fellowship the summer of 2020 when many college students had their summer jobs and full-time jobs revoked during COVID. As an apprentice-based business, venture has traditionally been a tough industry to break into. This fellowship is a chance to give these fellows that entry-level experience to kick off exceptional careers in venture capital and the world of technology startups.

Spending my summer at Halogen was one of the most critical experiences that drove me to pursue a career in technology investing. Being able to learn from such a knowledgeable team in a small group setting was truly an incredible experience.

Through my fellowship at Halogen, I learned an incredible amount about finance and venture capital through guest speakers and special events, but most importantly, I left the summer with a new understanding of the value of women in finance and business. The women at Halogen fostered a brave, welcoming, and diverse fellowship experience. Returning to school after my Halogen fellowship, I adopted an “invest in women” mindset, stayed connected to my fellowship class, and have a clear vision of how to embed impact throughout my career.

The Halogen fellowship was a great experience, allowing me to learn the inner workings of sourcing deals, how to pitch ideas, speak to founders, and work with portfolio companies. I am so grateful to the team for all of the learnings had and relationships made throughout the program.
