The Fellows will receive hands-on training and mentorship, get to shadow the investment team during their meetings, while honing essential skills in the areas of investment due diligence. The Fellows will gain experience in research and analysis of various sectors, geographies and investment opportunities.

Fellows will also be invited to attend private events held by MHV as well as by our portfolio companies, where they will get to meet some of the most inspiring founders from the region and network with thought leaders.
