DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship

A unique entrepreneurship education experience designed for Stanford Engineering master’s students.

Handcrafted for a dozen Stanford School of Engineering master’s students interested in entrepreneurial ventures, the DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship guides fellows to engage in deep discussions on entrepreneurial leadership. With a front-row seat to venture creation and growth, fellows have opportunities to observe local venture capitalists and receive industry mentorship from professionals and a growing alumni network.

Program Info and Application

Building on elements of STVP’s other successful programs for students, the DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship was created to serve the specific needs of master’s students, who often have previous career experiences, and who have a limited amount of time to pursue entrepreneurship activities while studying at Stanford.
The Fellowship aims to provide the optimal amount of structured experiences, while leaving room for the individual student to explore topics of interest most vital to their own career interests and trajectory. Enrollment is limited to 12 Stanford School of Engineering master’s students.

Please email Ryan Shiba with any questions about applying to the DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship.

The application period for the 2019 DFJ Entrepreneurial Leaders Fellowship is now closed.
