VFA Founder Andrew Yang’s book, ‘Smart People Should Build Things,’ is a fantastic primer for anyone wondering how entrepreneurs turn a great concept into a revolutionary business. Its principal idea—that the U.S needs more top talent in growth companies that solve problems and create value—drives VFA’s every decision. Andrew hopes it will ultimately transform the national dialogue and push the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship.
With a mission to revitalize American cities, VFA recruits and trains top college grads to work at startups in emerging entrepreneurial hubs across the country. Throughout their two-year fellowship, VFA Fellows learn alongside experienced entrepreneurs at growing companies to gain the skills and experience they need to build businesses and create jobs. The ultimate goal? To help a new generation launch their careers as entrepreneurs and have an impact on the economy.
