Congratulations to Amrit Mazumder 15 GD, who today became one of 12 student designers nationwide to be named a 2013 KPCB Fellow.

Created by venture capitalists Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the program pairs top US design and engineering students with innovative Silicon Valley startups for a three-month summer internship. Mazumder will be working with Palo Alto-based Flipboard, a company “on a quest to transform how people discover, view and share content by combining the beauty and ease of print with the power of social media.” 

Greg Victory, director of RISD’s Career Center, describes Mazumder as “an amazing designer with an intense entrepreneurial spirit” and points out that he’s one of the founding members of E’ship, RISD’s new student group of aspiring entrepreneurs.
