From an idea that your family would invest in to an idea a VC would invest in.

SEED (Social Entrepreneur and Enterprise Development) is an intensive 8-month journey designed to help you sharpen your business model and raise your first round of funding.

 

High-touch mentorship

SEED Mentors have 15-20 years of experience, have run their own companies, and have reached executive levels across sectors. They engage with you for two hours a week while off-site, and stay on location for the workshops, to provide you constant guidance.

Focused investor feedback

At the start, you will receive feedback on your business proposition from those who matter the most – investors who could potentially invest in your enterprise. During the 8 months you can refine your business model. At the end, secure your first deal.

World-class workshops

SEED workshops give you the practical tools to create a robust business model and test it on the ground. Run by global leaders from every field, the workshops are customized to your needs and highly actionable.

Stake in your success

We are putting our money where our mouth is. Under our innovative payment model, you are free to leave if you feel that we are not adding value. Since our success is based on your completing SEED and raising funding, we are holding ourselves to the highest standard of accountability.
