Parcel B Fellowship
The Parcel B Fellowship is intended to help Olin students learn more about technology startups through programming tailored to Olin's learning style alongside an actual internship in Silicon Valley. This program supports our mission by better preparing students to become startup interns, and one day - employees and founders.
The program draws inspiration from Stanford's Mayfield Fellowship program and Olin professor Rob Martello, and material from Y Combinator's Startup School as well as blog posts and book excerpts from accomplished technologists, entrepreneurs and investors like Ben Horowitz, Paul Graham, Sheryl Sandburg, Joel Spolsky, and Keith Rabois.
This year is almost like the Olin Partner Year. We're testing out the idea, looking for bugs, and of course, gathering feedback. Any Olin student intern or recent graduate can be in the Fellowship as long as they can attend all the events in San Francisco in person.
We hope that outcomes include: a greater knowledge of how startups work, a strong and long-lasting network with the Olin alumni community, an understanding of whether working at or founding a startup is right for you, and hopefully a greater ability to achieve those goals and make smart career decisions.
