Our History

What Past Fellows Have to Say

"Every PennApps is like a family reunion to look forward to. The PennApps Fellows experience was a super cool way to meet other like-minded people in tech and learn a ton through an internship in the process!"Caroline
"I’d say the biggest value proposition was the people. Whether it be the coordinators of the program, the other fellows, the coworkers, or the supportive Philly tech community, I was able to mature technically and personally in ways that are very hard in other contexts."Krish
"This summer I learned what it was like firsthand to work at a startup while making lifelong friends, and I really couldn't ask for anything more."Christina
