“At Village Capital’s accelerator we received help from the best. We learned from mentors that you would usually have to pay to meet. We grew our contacts, got press attention and attracted investment opportunities. Our customer segmentation was never sharper. Our unit economics were projected to the last cent. Our value proposition was as polished as a lieutenant’s shoe. By the end, we no longer who cared who wins. We knew who wins: we all do.”
