About the Program

Our KPCB Fellows Program offers outstanding college students from across the United States an opportunity to gain significant experience working on unique and challenging technical, design and product problems, and to develop new relationships that are meaningful to their careers.

Over the course of a summer, KPCB Design and Engineering Fellows will be employed at our portfolio companies, where they can develop their technical or design skills and be mentored by an executive within the company. Participants in our new Product Fellows program will get the chance to spend a full year working at a Valley startup.

Fellows will also be invited to attend both private events held by KPCB and others hosted by portfolio companies, where they can meet other talented engineering and design students, network with luminaries in their respective fields, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area.
