Springworks is a terrific program run by my friend Jorge Calderon. It's for women and minorities who want to work in venture capital and venture-backed startups. You apply before you go to business school and then work through the program during the 2 years you are in school. Definitely check it out if you qualify. |: "There are a disproportionate number of women and minorities in leading or supporting roles within venture investment sized start-ups. Historically, companies owned by women and minorities have received less than 5% of total venture capital investments"
