Urspace Labs is a 10-week fellowship program we ran in 2020 for students who did not have an internship or job lined up that summer. Like a cross between a bootcamp and an accelerator, we coached newcomers in tech through the basics of product development—from ideation to research to design to development.
Students applied as individuals with a written application, and qualified candidated moved on to a digital interview round. Accepted fellows were then placed into teams of 4: 1 Product Manager, 1 Designer, and 2 Engineers.

With a panel of industry professionals in product, design, and engineering, our teams pitched in a live virtual event. After all the pitches and a winner was announced, we hosted breakout rooms for virtual networking and live demos.
Current students (or new grads from the class of 2020) in the US are elligible to apply for Urspace Labs! Unfortunately, due to live weekly lectures, we need to keep our fellows within a few time zones from us.
You may only apply individually, and you’ll form teams once Urspace Labs starts. This is to encourage meeting new people, and to simulate a working environment.
