Urspace Labs

Urspace Labs is a digital fellowship program for student designers, developers, and product managers.

Design, build, and launch a product in 10 weeks.

Welcome to urspace labs

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.

How it works
Students apply as individuals and will then be placed into teams of 4-5: 1 Product Manager, 1 Designer, and 2-3 Engineers. Teams will work on their own products, and at the end of the fellowship, students will be ready to jump into an internship or junior role at your company (or they may just take off with their own startup)!

Who can apply?

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.

Can I apply with a team?

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.
