About EduLab Capital Partners
EduLab Capital Partners is an early-stage venture capital fund focused on investing in promising learning technologies companies. Our roots extend from Boston to Tokyo – with a global team of investors, entrepreneurs, operators, industry experts, and financiers. We invest in seed-stage companies at the intersection of education and workforce development, focusing on innovation in and outside the classroom of life. From Pre-K to 12, higher education to alumni development, and corporate recruiting to professional development – we are looking for entrepreneurs who challenge the norms of a system that desperately needs evolution from within. Beyond providing capital, we position our companies and Founders to become the next generation of industry leaders.
EduLab Capital Partners’ Student Fellowship Program
EduLab Capital Partners identifies, invests in, and builds impactful companies. We are company builders and impact makers, and we’re looking to grow our roster of talent. Our Student Fellows will have an inside look at an international VC platform. Our previous Venture Fellows have come from Harvard Business School, Yale University, Stanford University, Williams College, Boston College, University of Chicago, University of Texas, and Cornell University. Since graduating from our program, our Venture Fellows have gone on to careers in organizations such as Morgan Stanley, Alpine Investors, Bain Capital, and Blue Cloud Ventures. The program is ideally suited for second & third-year undergraduates or graduate students interested in learning more about venture capital (learn about previous fellows and their experience here).
We see the primary benefit of this program as the educational experience and access it will provide. We also offer a stipend for successful completion of the program. We hope to be able to offer you the opportunity to share your learnings and meet the team in-person at the Boston office, as we did in May 2023.
To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter to Info@edulabcapital.com or via Handshake or LinkedIn by the end of the day on November 15th.
EduLab Capital launched its second internship program in June 2020, in the thick of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the Brady Bunch format for collaboration, it was an incredibly valuable and fun internship experience.
EduLab Capital Partners is always looking to connect with visionary founders and other thought leaders in the education and workforce technology space.
