Role

TFX Capital is announcing our new Fellows program. Based in Charlotte, NC our mission is “To accelerate the success of accomplished former military Founders in order to deliver investor returns, develop teams and grow a value-added network.” Since 2015, we have invested in and supported mission-driven Founders and their teams across the US in a wide array of industries.

We are looking for dynamic and driven Veterans completing their degrees (full time students) to work with us for six months.  The Fellowship will begin in mid-January 2021 and run through the end of June.  Since we know that students are very busy we will work to align schedules with projects and deliverables at TFX.
