Venture Capital Jobs and Internships at Rough Draft Ventures
It’s easier than ever to start a company. We’re here to help you take it from first draft (or second, or third) to final draft with world-class education, meaningful resources and mentorship, and a community powered and backed by leading venture capital firm, General Catalyst.
We started Rough Draft Ventures because we have faith in student founders. We bet on them early and commit to them long-term. We take pride in helping them iterate on rough drafts to build enduring, impactful companies.
We invest checks through founder-friendly SAFEs via our network of student fellows, supplying the brightest student founders across the US with meaningful resources, access to education, and one of their earliest support systems.
