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.

Francesca Cetta

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.

The Halogen Fellowship was such an empowering experience and truly unlike any other VC fellowship out there. It is clear that the Halogen team is extremely dedicated to their mission of promoting diversity and equity in the venture capital industry and they are such inspiring mentors.
