Who is Visible Hands for?

In Summer 2021, Visible Hands will bring together an inaugural cohort of exceptional individuals from across the U.S. to support them in finding co-founders, validating business ideas, and building transformational technology companies. Selected fellows will each receive an initial investment of $25,000 as well as the opportunity for an additional $150,000 investment at the end of the fellowship.

Who is eligible for this fellowship?

  • We are focused on investing in underrepresented talent who would make exceptional venture-backed entrepreneurs. This includes women, non-binary people, and Black, Latinx, and Indigenous American people.

How will we assess candidates?

In our selection process, we will look for individuals who demonstrate the following traits:

  • Actionable Skills & Insights: Our fellows will have ‘inspired insights’ into a specific customer, problem, industry, or technology, and/or a strong skillset that gives them a competitive advantage to building and distributing their solution.
