James R. Swartz Entrepreneurial Fellows Program

The James R. Swartz Entrepreneurial Fellows program fast-tracks the careers of Carnegie Mellon graduate students who are passionate about entrepreneurship in the technology arena. This highly selective program develops each Fellow’s entrepreneurial potential and leadership skills through coursework in entrepreneurship, mentoring, hands-on experiences and networking. The core of the program is a mentored summer internship with a top tier VC-backed startup within the high-tech, high-growth environment of California’s Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

Made possible by a generous gift from James R. Swartz, founder and managing partner of Accel Partners, the Swartz Fellows program is now in its ninth year.
