“The Fellowship is perfect for anyone who thrives on autonomy, rapid growth, feedback and has always dreamed about joining a start-up with a world-changing mission,”

explains Michael Batko, CEO of Startmate.

You don’t need to quit your job to participate because it operates outside work hours, but applicants must be committed. Whether you’re looking for a new career path, returning from parental leave, accepted a new contract or in-between jobs; this is the program helping you find your dream job.

Participants will be required to pay a fee of $1000 for the program but have the chance of earning a scholarship (up to 10) and a paid internship will be offered throughout the program as well for financial remuneration. As a bonus near the end of the program, applicants can go on a trip to San Francisco for a separate fee.

“We focus on finding people who are passionate, tenacious, quick-thinking and hungry for opportunity, and then train them to be exceptional candidates who can thrive in a fast-paced start-up atmosphere,” 

says Batko.
