Summer Employer Info & Application

Mayfield fellows take paid internships with organizations during the summer session, allowing each fellow to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills on high-impact projects. As part of the internship experience, we require each fellow to be assigned a senior-level mentor within the organization (e.g., CEO, VP, or founder). Although another employee may supervise a fellow, it is critical that each fellow also have a senior internal sponsor concerned with the fellow’s welfare who is willing to meet one-on-one with the student to discuss progress and goals. Participating companies also engage in MFP-sponsored activities during the program. For example, each organization hosts a virtual visit during the summer for the other fellows in the cohort, and during the autumn quarter, employers may participate as guest speakers or case participants in the course.

In all aspects of these activities, STVP honors the organization’s intellectual property in a professional manner. Our mission is to expose Stanford students to the reality of the entrepreneurial process in a variety of different organizations, not to put participating organizations at risk. We expect mentor organizations to operate in a highly ethical manner and demonstrate a commitment to the growth of the fellows they employ.

Interested organizations may apply by completing a short online application, which will be available through early June. Organizations that apply to be MFP employers are not guaranteed to have their offers of employment accepted by a fellow. MFP urges employers to provide compensation during the duration of the summer internship.

Your startup must meet the following criteria in order to host a Mayfield Fellow:

  • Series B or earlier are preferred
  • Remote position or based in the Bay Area
  • 8 weeks total, must be a paid internship
  • Must report to and or receive mentorship from C-suite/VPs
