PledgeLA, in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation, is thrilled to announce the fourth year of LA’s citywide Summer Venture Capital Internship. We share a common vision: increasing equity and access to opportunities in VC. Founded in 2019, the program provides promising students from backgrounds not well-represented in VC with tailored training and a 10-week paid summer experiential learning internship at one of the top VC firms in Los Angeles.

This internship program is cohort-based to facilitate the building of valuable connections amongst peers. This application is for the LOS ANGELES Program. Specifically for university students (all universities eligible) and recent graduates interested in venture capital with a strong connection to the Los Angeles ecosystem. More information on the PledgeLA VC Internship program can be found here. The summer program is powered by HBCUvc, whose mission is to direct how capital is formed and distributed to increase opportunities for Black, Indigenous, and Latinx innovators.

Early Application Deadline - Friday, October 15th 

Early applications will have access to an invite-only feedback session, plus the opportunity to resubmit their application before the October 30th deadline.


Final Application Deadline - Sunday, October 31st
