SVAcademy Women 2.0 Scholars Program Helps Women Start a Business Career in Silicon Valley


We have an exciting new opportunity to share with our members interested in a business career in the tech industry!

We have recently partnered with SVAcademy to offer 5 full scholarships for our members to join the upcoming cohorts beginning January and February! At the end of the three-month program, our Women 2.0 Scholars will be provided with an internship that transitions to a great job in tech with an average starting salary of $78,000.

The program is virtual—so you can live anywhere and still be a great candidate. As a Women 2.0 Scholar, you’ll receive 1:1 mentorship from execs at Google and LinkedIn, hands-on job training, networking with recent grads working in the industry, and behind-the-scenes access into the tech industry. Then SVAcademy will set up interviews with its partner companies and help you transition into a high-paying job you will love.

100% of SVAcademy students have been hired at fast growing tech companies. Partner employers include Salesforce, Box, Qubole, Lever, Zuora, OpenGov, Intercom, Zendesk, Optimizely, and many other exciting startups.

If you might be interested, don’t delay! The application deadline for the February Cohort is January 31st. 

The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and as a Women 2.0 member, your application will be fast-tracked!
