Villgro is excited to announce a brand-new initiative, SEED (Social Entrepreneur and Enterprise Development). Aimed at strengthening the pipeline of seed-investable social entrepreneurs in India, SEED is an intensive 6-month program to prepare early stage social entrepreneurs to sharpen their models and raise their first rounds of funding.
Villgro will bring India’s most promising social entrepreneurs back to the drawing board — with high-touch mentoring, close involvement of seed investors, and a world-class curriculum, their social enterprises will be poised for powerful growth. SEED will accept 10 high-potential social entrepreneurs and will run from November 2012 to March 2013.
If your social enterprise has previously raised funding only from self, family, and friends, and has been in operation for some time, and you are ready to go back to the drawing board and undergo rigorous training to prepare for investment, apply for SEED today. Applications close June 30th.
The SEED program is supported by the Global Social Benefit Incubator Network from Santa Clara University, ALTIS Business School at the Universita Cattolica del Santo Cuore, and the Loyola Institute of Business Administration.
