Venture Building foundations

About the program

In this fellowship, you will learn how to source for remarkable entrepreneurs, build and manage a deal flow pipeline and finally structure an investment deal into a company of your choice. This would be your capstone project.

You will also learn the proprietary Innovation frameworks we have used to help transform portfolio companies into high performing high growth companies.

Underpinning these skills would be the pillars of redemptive stewardship principles which we imbibe into our fellows to ensure they are building on a solid foundation  for lasting impact.
