2 TIMES A YEAR, 2 MODULES FOR 2 BUSINESS STAGES

Twice a year, we invite applications from emerging startups. Through these two cohorts, we roll out two different modules for businesses in different stages. Based on the stage of the startup, they get enrolled in either of these modules.

For idea-stage startups where entrepreneurs come with a business idea

For growth-seeking startups where entrepreneurs come with a business prototype

We believe every startup is the journey of an idea that needs the right push in the right direction. Whichever stage of business your startup is in, we are here to guide you. If you believe in your business and want to take it to places, register for our cohort now.

Inside V@C

ENABLEMENT

The most unique feature in our program is Enablement. Through this, an Enabler (startup coach) is assigned to each startup who guides them throughout the course of the program.

Through fortnightly temperature checks, the Enabler works closely with the startup in various aspects like regular ideation sessions, progress tracking, skill development, idea testing, networking and identifying opportunities.

MULTI-CENTRE MULTI-SECTOR

Cutting across segments as diverse as technology, compliance, finance, sales & marketing, human resources and leadership, V@C creates an innovation environment with footprints in leading entrepreneurial hubs of India like Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Gandhinagar, Mumbai, and NCR.

ALUMNI SUPPORT

V@C believes in a long-term association with all its startups. Even after a startup graduates from the V@C acceleration program, V@C extends support by acting as advisors and being a part of their startup journey.

ACCESS TO INVESTMENT

V@C also helps growth-seeking startups establish investor connections in the final stage of the course of their program.

PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE

KNOW V@C

V@C is Viridian Accelerator Centre, a business accelerator supporting early and growth-seeking startups with centres in key entrepreneurial hubs across India. Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Gandhinagar, Mumbai, and NCR. With a program-based approach to build entrepreneurs, V@C provides a comprehensive package including enablement program, cross-sector expertise, access to a pool of mentors, service providers and potential investor connections. If you think you have a brilliant business idea and have it in you to be an entrepreneur, feel free to reach us or write at startsomething@vac.co

Our vision is to promote entrepreneurship by providing a holistic environment at our sector-agnostic accelerator centres in key cities of India. We follow it up by running our unique enablement program to develop entrepreneurs with a clear sight of value creation by helping them shape their ideas into a realizable business.

Once you are accepted into our program, you will be assigned an Enabler at the centre who would walk the journey with you and help you grow your business. The program is designed to suit your individual business needs with formal interactions every fortnight and events from time to time. Our intensive engagement program helps you meet mentors, industry experts, trainers, service providers, peer-group of innovators and potential investors. This creates a holistic environment required for the growth of your startup.

V@C is sector agnostic and works with entrepreneurs across industries. We actively encourage entrepreneurs from across sectors to apply. We have worked with entrepreneurs in sectors as varied as Poultry Farming, Social Ventures, Rural Enterprises, and Technology Ventures into AI to name a few.

We have our centres in the following cities – Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Gandhinagar, Mumbai, and NCR.

APPLY AT V@C

We have an online application process. Please click on the Apply Now link on www.thevac.co and fill in your details. Our team will get in touch with you.

You are welcome to apply anytime on our website or F6s. We take applications at regular intervals throughout the year. A confirmed seat will be offered based on the availability of slots at your preferred centre.

We generally prefer working with companies which are in the idea to early revenue stage. You are, however, welcome to apply at any stage where you feel we can add value to your business.

We are happy to accept applications from anywhere in India. The program design is extremely intensive and for you to benefit the most, we strongly recommend that you attend the sessions in person. In cases where the entrepreneurs are non-residents of the city where they are enrolled for the program, there are alternative options to enable the startups through the program.

V@C takes special care to ensure that your idea stays safe and nobody else can use it. The program agreement includes all relevant confidentiality and indemnity clauses that apply throughout the course of the program.

V@C PROGRAM

You can come with multiple ideas and apply by filling separate application forms for each idea.

There are occasions where we have applying entrepreneurs with ideas in the same domain. To ensure the confidentiality of their idea and equitable support, different Enablers are assigned to them.

V@C provides an opportunity to connect and pitch in front of investors to all its Module 2 startups.
