MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 30, 2011 – Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers is starting a new program that pairs bright students across the country with innovative startup companies located in Silicon Valley, beginning with the summer of 2012. The goal of the Fellows Program is for students to gain significant experience working on some of the most unique and challenging technical problems, and to develop new and meaningful relationships.
Over the course of the summer, KPCB Fellows will develop their technical abilities through paid employment and mentorship by engineering executives within a startup company. To complement the work experience, KPCB Fellows will also be invited to exclusive events hosted by KPCB-funded companies, where they can meet other talented engineering students, network with technology luminaries, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area. To ensure that KPCB Fellows have the best possible experience during the summer, the program will accept only a limited number of top students. KPCB anticipates having 25 KPCB Fellows for the summer 2012 program.
The application period for the summer 2012 KPCB Fellows Program opened on Sept. 30, 2011. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 pm PDT on Oct. 31, 2011.
