Augment’s Venture Fellows Program
Over the years at Augment, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with many talented students, teaching and mentoring the next generation of venture professionals. We’ve created a Venture Fellows Program to continue that mentorship. We are looking to hire MBA students (remote) to work alongside the Augment team during the Summer (full-time).
