A Bessemer Fellow is a special appointment for high-performing students interested in engineering, product, or data science within the Bessemer portfolio. We accept students who have demonstrated excellence in their academic or professional pursuits and have a deep passion for entrepreneurship and innovation.
Applications are accepted for third-year undergraduate students in these functions who are interested in working with a venture-backed startup during an 8-12 week period starting in the summer of 2022. We are particularly focused on hiring students from underrepresented backgrounds in tech. We are appointing 20 fellows for summer 2022. A Bessemer team member will reach out to you with a response within two weeks of applying.
