Introducing the 2024 PledgeLA VC Fellowship Cohort!

Big news! We’re thrilled to announce the 2024 cohort of the PledgeLA VC Fellowship program! After a competitive selection process and 3 months of intensive venture capital training led by our program partner Cinematica Labs, we are excited to welcome 10 inspiring and impact-driven fellows. This incredible group was matched for full-time placement at 9 LA-based VC firms and accelerators, including VamosVentures, Supply Change Capital., and MaC Venture Capital, and more!

Our fifth-annual program is a core part of PledgeLA’s work to build a more inclusive venture ecosystem in Los Angeles that represents the diversity of our dynamic region. The 2024 fellow cohort represents incredible emerging leaders that bring experience in cleantech, education, entrepreneurship, and more. Of this group, 70% are women, 60% identify as people of color (Black or Latinx/e), and 10% identify as LGBTQIA+.

“We’re thrilled to have empowered 10 remarkable individuals through our partnership with PledgeLA to facilitate transformative experiences for each fellow. Recruiting from diverse graduate programs across Los Angeles and with investment training that validates their lived experiences, these fellows are exceptionally prepared for their summer placements at top VC firms. We can’t wait to witness the impactful contributions they’ll make this summer and beyond.”
