Your Cohort Lead

Your cohort will be led by Emon Motamedi, Florian's founder and CEO.

Having supported over 1,000 students, Emon will work alongside your cohort to help you land a quality role in tech.

Prior to Florian, Emon led the Video and Digital Economy teams at Reddit as a Senior Product Manager. Before that, he spent several years in investment banking and private equity.

Emon graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from UC Berkeley, with a double major in business and cognitive science and a minor in computer science.

Who should apply?


The Fellowship is targeted to those pursuing roles in the tech industry. We support candidates across job functions within tech, whether engineering, product, design, data science, sales, business, etc.

What if I miss an event?


No problem! We'll provide you with a recording afterward so you can catch up on what you missed.

Is the Fellowship virtual?


Yes, the Fellowship is virtual. We may layer on in-person elements in the future, but for now everything will be remote.

What does the Fellowship cost?


The Fellowship has no up-front cost. Only once Fellows are working full-time and earning at least $60,000 will they pay 6% of one year's income. This is to ensure Florian is aligned with your outcome.

For example, a salary of $70,000 would translate to $4,200 paid.

How long is the Fellowship?


The Fellowship is 9 months in length. Most students should land roles sooner than that, but we don't want to turn our backs on students who are taking a bit longer to find a job.

Does the Fellowship come with funding?


No, the Fellowship is separate from our Funding program.
