HOW VFA WORKS
VFA works with startup partners who are looking to hire mid to senior-level talent across product, finance, data and growth-focused roles.
We evaluate the best fit from our talent pool which is made up of skilled local African and global talent who want to transition to working with high-growth startups.
We take qualified candidates through our selection process and provide our startup partners with a shortlist of prospective fellow profiles to review and interview top candidates.
Successful candidates are given fellowship offers by VFA and matched with a startup partner for 3 months, during which they work on outlined deliverables and receive a monthly stipend.
