Have a world-changing idea? Village Capital can help you get the funding and connections you need to build your company.

We build a community of entrepreneurs solving a major problem in society. We run a series of intensive programs focused on helping a cohort of entrepreneurs build the team, secure the strategic partnerships, and raise the investment capital they need to scale their business. At the end of each program, we rely on the entrepreneurs themselves to determine the most investment-ready ideas in their cohort, and we invest in ventures picked by their peers.

TESTIMONIALS

Mark Mwaura
Managing Director
Olivine Technology

Village Capital helped me identify some of the bottlenecks to our growth. I knew we could go much further and it was a bit puzzling why we weren’t growing. The program helped me discover why that was the case and come up with solutions that we’ve already put in place, and started to see results.

Óscar Robles
CEO
ePesos

Village Capital is our go-to for connections to funders and partners - they have an extensive network and do a fantastic job facilitating introductions to the industry. During their FinTech workshops, we made key decisions that have positively affected the growth and direction of ePesos. If we had not participated in the program, we would have definitely been out of the game.

Kate Woska
CEO & Co-Founder
Atikus

The Village Capital program offered very tangible ways to improve Atikus’ foundation and position us for our next phase of growth. The information we learned was actionable, value-generating, and universally applicable to the diverse set of cohort members.

“The Village Capital FinTech US program made us think critically about every aspect of our company and make the adjustments necessary to progress. Put simply: our company left the program light-years ahead of where we entered it.”

Village Capital helps entrepreneurs take their idea to the next level.
