Digital Wesleyan Fellowship Program
Digital Wesleyan is an alumni group founded and run by alumni, independent of the university. We are entrepreneurs, investors, and executives building the next generation of technology and media companies.
We believe that starting a company, or finding a startup company to join, appears a lot harder than it is, and we’re coming to campus to dispel the mystery.
Technology startups, like no other work environment, present an opportunity to use creativity to solve real world problems.
We want to provide you with the tools and language to identify problems that you want to solve, and then solve them.

It starts with an intensive six week workshop. The Workshop will be led by coding and design teachers from the Flatiron School and General Assembly in NYC as well as speakers from prominent New York-based startups and early stage investment firms.
Every Saturday (Saturdays 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. starting February 15th), we’ll meet for three hours and walk you through a curriculum that includes:
- Introduction to computer science and application design: It’s not actually that hard to build an app. We’ll show you how.
- Introduction to alumni in the industry: Investors, entrepreneurs, executives will come to campus and tell you their story. This is a world where mentors matter, and the Wesleyan network gives you a huge step up.
- Introduction to startup thinking: How should you design a business that can support the product you want to build?
The Internship:Students will be paired with tech startups in New York City and San Francisco for summer-long paid internships, funded by alumni sponsors. 10 such internships are available, and your participation in the workshop will be taken into account in our evaluation process.
