We believe that impact ventures play a vital part in accelerating the worldwide adoption of green and inclusive technologies, policies and behaviours. Our goal is to make impact ventures ready for investment, growth and global impact.
Our approach is a unique 5-month peer-learning program that consists of 12 workshop days leading up to an investor forum, supported by mentors, speakers, content experts, associates and powerful business tools. A cohort of 10 to 14 selected participants engage in a systematic review of their business strategy, model and team, before crafting a validated growth and investment plan.
In 2013, we successfully organised the first “Village Capital NL” program in The Netherlands, together with founding partners The DOEN Foundation, Outside Inc. and Village Capital (USA). In 2014, we continued as “Investment Ready Program” with a more local team and partners, but based on the Village Capital format and fully supported by Village Capital.
We hope to welcome you to the Investment Ready Program of 2016/2017.
