A unique opportunity for Stanford undergraduates and co-terms to develop guiding principles for entrepreneurial leadership.

PEAK Fellows offers 16 Stanford undergraduate and co-term students the opportunity to develop their personal principles for entrepreneurial leadership. These principles are designed to help guide each fellow as they shape teams and align their career decisions with their values. Over the course of a quarter, fellows build a values-based entrepreneurial mindset and toolkit within the close-knit cohort through honest discussions and mentoring from alumni and peers. PEAK Fellows is part of the Principled Action and Knowledge (PEAK) project through the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP).

Program Info and Application

PEAK Fellows is an opportunity for 16 Stanford undergraduate and co-term students to explore what it means to develop and practice principles in the context of entrepreneurial businesses. It places students who are working in technology ventures into cohorts of eight students to learn with peers and gain mentorship. Through readings and bi-weekly meetings, students define a set of principles that resonate with them. These principles will serve as guides for how Fellows shape future teams and select workplaces that align with their values. Fellows engage in small-group discussions with industry guests offering unique perspectives from their own entrepreneurial experiences. After PEAK Fellows comes to a close, students come away with a heightened understanding of their own values, a close-knit community of peers, and the tools necessary to begin to brave ethical dilemmas in the future. PEAK Fellows is part of the Principled Action and Knowledge (PEAK) project through the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP).

Information sessions will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, Apr. 14, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. and Friday, Apr. 16, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m (PW: 886925).

Application deadline is Sunday, Apr. 25, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
