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.
