|  OUR PROGRAMS

The ultimate goal of our Programs are to help entrepreneurs get ready to scale up. We believe that a successful scale-up journey begins with  four fundamental blocks: (1) product-market fit, (2) a resourceful team, (3) well-defined funding pathways and (4) demonstrated impact. 

Our program is a unique mix of an initial capital injection, expert-lead masterclasses, milestone-based follow-on funding, 1:1 Venture Partner support, and access to a deep set of mentors that help companies achieve business objectives.

Product Market Fit

We help to tune your value proposition and build a market-informed product roadmap and go-to-market strategy.

Team-Building Support

A team of seasoned executives, including a dedicated Venture Partner will be guiding you through the program. We will help you identify gaps in your team and recruit your next key hires.

Funding Pathways

We assist in the development of an investor-ready business model and funding presentation and then introduce you to follow-on sources of capital.

Impact

We guide the definition of impact-oriented milestones that will drive product adoption and open up new pathways to capital sources.

Post-program Support

We are active investors in our portfolio companies and provide ongoing support after completion including introductions to customers, corporate development partnerships, and future funders.  We continue to build our relationship with our entrepreneurs well beyond the program.
