Our Fellows & Their Ventures

Camelback has worked with over 30 leaders who identify as underrepresented entrepreneurs, helping develop their ventures that make change in their communities. We take pride in supporting first generation college grads and immigrants in our cohorts, with over 90% of our entrepreneurs identifying as people of of color and 55% as women. We believe that entrepreneurs rooted in their community are more likely to create lasting impact, and so we prioritize ventures that are focused on creating change in their cities, neighborhoods, and schools.

After completing the Camelback Fellowship, our entrepreneurs have continued to evolve and thrive. For two years in a row, 3 Camelback Fellows have been featured on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List in Education. Fellows have received recognition and support from prestigious organizations such as the Aspen Institute, Draper Richards Kaplan, Echoing Green, Penn GSE, Teach for America's Social Innovation Award, Education Pioneers’ EPiC Alumni Award, and the Yale School of Management. Moreover, Fellows have gone on to build their teams, raise over $5 million dollars, and impact their communities.
