Hi all,

Can't recommend joining Dorm Room Fund enough; it's easily been the best
decision I've made in college. Responsibilities include sourcing
student-run companies, critically evaluating their business
models/market/product/team, voting to invest in them, and supporting them
as portfolio companies however they need (helping them hire, fundraise from
institutional investors, think about strategy, obtain customers, etc).

It's a really great way to learn a ton about both the investing and
operating side of startups—I had no experience in venture capital at all
prior to joining, but have since learned what it really takes to start a
company and keep it going, met some of the most incredible founders out
there, and gotten really close with other people on the team :)

Definitely apply as soon as you can—applications are rolling! Feel free to
ask me any questions!

*Join the Dorm Room Fund team!*
$300M in follow-on funding from Sequoia, a16z, Google Ventures, and more. 8
companies in Y Combinator S17. Student-run.
