To help RUN the Soma Fellow program email firstname.lastname@example.org with your linkedin, a few lines on “your life journey so far,” what you’re most proud of, what themes and thesis you’re excited about, 3 Soma Companies that you’re most excited about, 3 “other” non Soma startups that excite you and why.
We’re looking for technical, brilliant “entrepreneurs”: you’ve been building stuff your whole life, you have a unique ability to “see the matrix” where the world is heading, and you have ideas on major pain points and you’re fired up to solve them by building software. You have an ability to sell and articulate a crystal clear vision and inspire others to “organize” around you and you’re not hungry, but “starving” to relentlessly create and make the biggest dent in the universe imaginable. You’re a little crazy —perhaps “obsessed”— with building things and have tender love and care in your craft. Does this sound like you? Further:
You’re fearless, confident, know how to balance taking feedback with being unshakeable in unique “outlier” views, you have strong and inspiring technical skills, a competitive “will to win” and you dream massive - because dreams are future realities, like Bruce Lee says
