Focusing on In-demand Identity of Talent
Each program serves a different hard-to-reach, in-demand identity of talent — with women and students currently the focus of our two Fellowships, and programs for early-stage founders and engineers primed to launch this year.
Fellows Attracting Fellows
Our Fellowships attract talented individuals, who are either looking to break into the startup ecosystem but don’t know where to begin, or who are in the ecosystem but are looking to develop their skills, and guide them on their journey to success.
Startups and Fellows
On the startup side, our Fellowship talent pool solves different hiring problems, such as increased gender diversity, hiring amazing early talent, sourcing well-rounded engineers outside of the usual hunting grounds, scouting the founders of tomorrow, and developing leadership capability.
We know finding and onboarding the right employees is one of the biggest bottlenecks startups face, so one of Startmate’s goals is to increase the amount of talent in the ecosystem through our Fellowships.
