Village Capital teamed up with the VentureWell program of the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance to identify top university innovators in IT and cleantech for an 4-month intensive peer-based program at Greentown Labs in Boston. Teams joined a group of like-minded peers, received expert coaching on how to build investment ready companies, and built a network of investors and strategic partners that can help scale innovations. At the end of the program, two entrepreneurs were selected by their peers to receive $50,000 convertible note investment apiece.
Participants engaged in three intensive 3-day workshops as well as weekly coaching sessions. The program also engaged leading entrepreneurs and investors relevant to our enterprises and will included a venture forum and other events designed to increase exposure to the investment community.
