PRIZES

SUPPORT AND INVESTMENT THROUGH THE COLLABORATIVE INVESTMENT READINESS PROGRAMME:
The programme will consist of three four-day workshops that take place over the course of three months. Their award-winning curriculum encourages deep collaboration within the cohort, and at the end of the programme, the entrepreneurs will collectively peer-select two ventures to receive offers of $50,000 USD investment from VilCap Investments. Village Capital has developed more than 500 entrepreneurs with this model over 50 programmes, and 96% would recommend the process.

FACILITATION OF INTERACTIONS BETWEEN STARTUPS AND STRATEGIC PARTNERS:
Startups will get to connect and interact with:
- leading investors, entrepreneurs, and other sector experts who will offer mentorship during workshops as well as additional office hours; and
- potential customers, partners, and other industry stakeholders, who will participate in business development sessions at the workshops

Village Capital will bear all of the flight & lodging costs for participants to attend all workshops.

Omidyar Network will also evaluate participating companies to explore whether they would be a good fit for its education portfolio at the appropriate stage.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
