Without DRF, I would never have been able to land a full-time role in VC. Partly it's the clout that comes with having DRF on your resume, but it's so much more than that; through DRF, I learned the ins and outs of venture capital and portfolio support, I gained hands-on experience with founders, and I built an invaluable network of some of the best people in the industry who remain some of my closest friends and confidantes. I cannot recommend DRF more highly, particularly the HQ team where you get a taste of everything in venture capital: learning about investing and experience nurturing investments as they make their first hires, sign their first customers, and raise their next rounds.

DRF was likely the single most transformative event of my life to date. The people I've met flipped a switch in my thinking of what is possible. Today, they continue to inspire me.

| 2018-21 SF Team, Investment Partner
Dorm Room Fund has consistently been, and probably will continue to be, where I come to be surrounded by the most interesting, diverse, high-energy group of people working on interesting problems. Though investing is the de-facto activity we do, I think most partners come for that and find their next few years transformed by much more.

DRF gave me a solid introduction to understanding the technology and venture spaces at large. Through this, I had the privilege to meet extremely ambitious and intelligent students who motivated me to become the best version of myself. More importantly, I made lifelong friends through this experience.
