Current Kessler Fellows and Alumni

A Strong Alumni Network

For over a decade, the Kessler Fellows program has provided more than 200 aspiring student entrepreneurs with the opportunity to work with startups of their choice across the country and the globe. During their summer startup experience, Kessler Fellows complete internships in a variety of industries such as agriculture technology, computing, healthcare, fashion, and renewable energy — engaging in impactful and innovative work from developing technologies to decarbonize the economy to making hospitality and tourism experiences more accessible for wheelchair users.  

According to many Kessler Fellows, these summer startup experiences were formative to their early careers, and many alumni have continued onward to launch their own successful companies. Kessler Fellows alumni form the backbone of a strong alumni network available to current and future program participants.
