As we invest at the earliest stage of a company's lifecycle, our program is designed to help startups validate and iterate on their original hypotheses, achieve product/market fit and get them venture capital-ready for next-round funding. To give you a better picture of what our Bootcamp looks like, here are some literal snapshots of what happens during the program.
Workshops and seminars will be done by experts in their fields, consisting of in-house mentors and external speakers, who will provide you with knowledge about business modelling, marketing, fundraising etc.
During Bootcamp, you can book 1-1 meetings with VSV Capital Lead Mentors as often as you need, to discuss anything you are working on, or to figure out together what you should be working on. Talk to us often!
Every week during Bootcamp, we will invite a speaker, who is usually either a seasoned entrepreneur or investor, to come and join the batch for dinner, and share their journey as well as their advices with you.
There are two important events that we always organise for each batch: Feedback Day and Demo Day. Apart from that, there will be other social and networking events where we organise or give you access to.
Different from external Mentors from our network that are experts in different domains, whom we will match with startups after having sufficient understanding of each company's business and needs; our Lead Mentors are in-house and actual Partners of the firm. This means they have skin in the game as well as a holistic understanding of this space from investing and directly working with countless startups in various fields. Meet the Lead Mentors who you will see almost everyday:
After Bootcamp, VSV Capital continues to introduce startups to resources, customers, partners and investors. Before COVID-19 hits, we also regularly took our portfolio companies on roadshows to other cities and countries to open up more opportunities to meet with investors and join regional/international startup events. Most of the time, our job post-Bootcamp is to provide our expertise when you need help building financial projections, or strategically planning when negotiating major contracts or investment deals.
Our Bootcamp is 4-month, but our support is for life.
