Venture for America

May 31, 2011 Published under Entrepreneurship and Management

One of the reasons that Teach for America is so successful is that the organization harnesses young passion.  Venture for America (a program that we learned about from a great previous intern, Liz) hinges on a similar concept, only VFA places fresh college grads in start up environments in struggling parts of the country.   The idea is that the start-ups get inexpensive talent and passion, while the grads get hands on experience that will benefit their careers for the years to come. Venture for America seems like a great idea and it will be interesting to see its impact.
