Cory is the founder of Z Fellows: 1 Week. $10,000. Get fast-tracked into Silicon Valley.

Cory started After School, an anonymous teen social network with 20 million users when he was 19, raising $1 million in Venture Capital. Named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 for Consumer Technology and Dorm Room Founders, now Cory’s coming here to talk more on becoming a ZFellows, where you will be offered $10,000 to stop what you're doing for a week to work on a side project alongside mentors ranging from the Founder of Tinder to Netflix. Trying to get your foot in door in at a VC is challenging, especially as a student, where the demands of school can outweigh the risks. ZFellows was designed to help you make that calculated risk before committing full-time, so you def don’t want to miss out on this opportunity!

Make sure to join us for a Fireside Chat on Tuesday, November 16th in R2210 to ask Cory all your questions!


V1 is the community for ambitious student builders at the University of Michigan. At our core, we support student who are working on side-projects and start-ups — those who are looking to build their V1, the first version of their product

Over the past 9 months, we launched the V1 online community to bring Michigan’s ambitious student builders together. In the past, we’ve had speakers like the founder of Morning Brew, the president of Y Combinator, employees at unicorn startups, and more. We’ve also hosted intimate Maker Madness sessions where Wander, Slide, and other student run startups received feedback from the V1 community.

Now we want to educate and engage student-builders on emerging technology, research on the entrepreneurial world, and elaborate on the latest developer tools that are helping create the next generation of technology. If this sounds interesting and you want to learn and get more experience in student-led platforms/communities, join the V1 Content Team!

We are looking for 1-2 new recruits to help write our newsletter, work on our cool side projects including our Industry Insight series and member spotlights from our V1 Product Studio. The time requirement would be about 2-3 hours per week.

Make sure to sign-up here if this sounds exciting to you!
