We’re proud to have been named as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies. You can read about us in Condé Nast Traveler, where we were featured as one of the 56 Bright Ideas of Travel in 2022 and Phocuswire, where we were named as one of the hot 25 startups of 2023.
Fora was founded in 2021 by three travel entrepreneurs – Henley Vazquez, Jake Peters and Evan Frank – who shared one big idea. Since then, we’ve grown to a team of 30 full-time employees, with an office headquarters in Tribeca, New York City.
Fora is backed by leading VCs such as Forerunner and is a pioneer in an entirely new business model - the community-driven, digitally-native franchise.
THE WOLF PROGRAM
We’re seeking graduates to join us on our mission to create a better equation in travel and empower 100,000 travel entrepreneurs.
The Wolf program is a business operations program designed to give recent grads a startup bootcamp and a foot in the door at a top-tier, VC-backed startup. Focused on high-achieving entry-level candidates, this program provides the structure and training you need to learn the ropes of building a startup, as well as the opportunity to learn all ins and outs of the travel industry.
In the Wolf program you work cross functionally and gain exposure across all areas of the business. You’ll learn about growing a startup in rapid time and experience your own accelerated growth and professional development. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with Fora’s founders, who are experienced serial entrepreneurs and be involved in various components of travel sales and operations.
Our founders have run a similar program and many of those graduates have gone on to be product managers, startup cofounders and excelled in leadership roles.
