UCLA VC Fund Fellows Program
Omar Hilmy, a UCLA undergraduate for the class of 2014 double majoring in International Development Studies and Middle East African Studies, and Timothy Yu, a UCLA undergraduate student for the class of 2015 majoring in Cognitive Science, were also both honored as the first UCLA VC Fund Fellows. After a competitive application process, Omar and Tim were selected and participated in a paid, full-time summer program at their host companies –BitTorrent and NeuroSky, respectively, both based in Northern California. The VC Fund provided an additional stipend to the Fellows, and members of the Fund also served as mentors to Omar and Tim to help them maximize their experience and build their business networks.

“The Fellowship Program was a tremendous success for Omar and Tim, as well as the host companies,” said Jeff Suto, UCLA VC Fund executive committee member. “The students received an unrivaled opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience with top companies while the companies were able to connect with the upcoming generation of entrepreneurs. We are confident that our investment in Omar and Tim will result in a lifelong involvement with the UCLA entrepreneurial community and the VC Fund.
