Correction: Karyn Vilbig's and Benjamin Platta's names were spelled incorrectly. Two fellows bound for ZeroFOX, Sean Wen and Spencer Wolfe, were originally missing from the list.

Venture for America announced Friday 15 fellows for its second class in the Baltimore area.

The fellows will join local startups. Ten from this year’s cohort are headed to the Federal Hill-based cybersecurity firm ZeroFOX.

Venture for America tasks young graduates with spending two years in a startup, with the goal of empowering them as entrepreneurs later on. This year’s fellows come from alma maters like Duke, Brown, Northwestern and Notre Dame.

Recently, some members of Baltimore’s first class of VFA fellows worked together to crowdfund a new food market event.

Applications are already open for the 2015 class of fellows.

Here are this year’s fellows.

  • Allovue: Jolene Gurevich
  • Avhana Health: Harrison Tan
  • Everseat: Michael Tucker
  • Eyemaginations: Karyn Vilbig
  • PathSensors: Forrest Miller
  • ZeroFOX: Alexander Baca, Benjamin Platta, Benjamin Snowdon, Brian Schwartz, Christopher Holter, Dimitri Fautsch, Joan Thompson, Mike Patterson, Sean Wen, Spencer Wolfe
