The application process for Future VC 2022 is now open and we’ll be accepting applications until 12:09am, 5th Feb 2022 GMT

Future VC was established to support talented individuals from backgrounds that are currently under-represented in venture capital, to help them learn about and work in VC, and in doing so improve the inclusiveness of the industry. Future VC was launched by Diversity VC in 2017.

Future VC provides an eight-week, paid internship with leading Venture Capital funds. Participants gain the key skills and practical experience necessary to kickstart their careers in VC, including deep-dive masterclasses from worldwide industry experts.

20th June 2022 – 12th August 2022

Paid internships will be available in the UK. Our intention is that the programme will be office based, however, we’ll continue to monitor circumstances related to the pandemic and will update applicants later in the process.

Which funds will employ interns?
Over the past three years, our participating funds have included some of the world’s top VC funds. More information about participating funds is available on www.futurevc.com and we’ll also be making some announcements over Jan & Feb 2022.

What will I do?
The Future VC internship programme aims to create a peer-support group through developing a network amongst participants with weekly catch-ups to share learning and challenges. Each individual will be placed in a paid internship with one of our partner VC funds, and in addition, will have access to training to support them in developing the skills needed to succeed in the space.

Preparing for a career in VC in several ways
