Cornell Tech’s Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute will now offer companies worldwide an opportunity to send talented employees to an intensive one-year program to work on new business ventures that explore commercial uses for emerging technologies.

The new Cornell Tech Venture Fellows Program at the Jacobs Institute allows individuals to immerse themselves with a cohort of academically-minded entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs from diverse global businesses at Cornell University’s state-of-the-art tech campus in the heart of New York City.

The program is powered by Cornell Tech’s successful Runway Startups Program in the Jacobs Institute, which has launched more than 100 startups since 2014. Today those startups are valued at more than $660 million. They include businesses started by postdoctoral fellows as well as master’s degree candidates who pursue ventures through Cornell Tech’s Studio program.

Now, in addition to the existing startup opportunities on its campus, Cornell Tech will offer corporate leaders the chance to identify talented employees with similar potential for this new Venture Fellows Program.
