Andreessen Horowitz (also called a16z), one of the biggest and most talked about VC firm of the valley, with their portfolio companies including Facebook, AirBnB, Medium and probably anything great and big on the internet and beyond, is offering a mentorship program in design for current college students, called Generation Design.
Generation Design (Gen.D) is a mentorship program for college design students to be able to connect with designers from leading tech companies. Students will be able to ask mentors about their journey becoming a designer, what they’ve learned, and overall what it is like to work as a designer in the tech field. Mentors will also be available for portfolio feedback and general advice. This program is specifically for design college students. International students are more than welcome to apply.
The program will run from mid January to June with the expectation that students and mentors connect in person or over the phone once a month. Students can apply beginning September 1st – November 30th, 2016 for the 2017 cycle. For all Flow users, application deadlines is extended until 3rd December, 2016 9 pm, UTC. Students accepted into the program will be introduced to a design mentor early January 2017.
