The Kauffman Fellows Program is made possible through the steady support of the global venture community. Firms become members of the Kauffman Fellows Society either by hiring and sponsoring a Kauffman Finalist or by sponsoring someone already at their firm for a Kauffman Fellowship (the affiliate process).

The participating firms that make up the Kauffman Fellows Society are listed here, organized by global region. Firms are listed alphabetically by country inside each region, and firm names link to their websites.
