(THE GARDEN)

A boutique growth accelerator that prepares founders to achieve global success. We build tailor-made programs adapted to the unique challenges selected startups face, working one-on-one to achieve optimal results.

(THE GARDEN)

LABORATORY

Product, Growth and Engineering are at the core of our business and should be at yours too. TheVentureCity team has wide experience in pairing product and product-based growth strategies. We start with instrumenting the product to support our data-driven approach. From there, we mentor our early-stage startups to use data tools and frameworks used by industry leaders to generate insights about their product and customers. Our expertise extends to defining and executing product, growth and engineering playbooks as well as building teams.

UNIVERSITY

Through our University team companies will have access to knowledge, talent and partner benefits. We will help you build the company culture, connect you to the right people within our curated list of international mentors and subject matter experts, and support you to identify the right talent channels for your hiring needs.

AIRPORT

The how, when and where are key to going international. Internationalization is not only about translating, it’s about finding the correct timing, the right local partners, understanding the market, regulatory framework and cultural adjustments.

BANK

The Bank supports founders with their fundraising strategy and tactics with the ultimate goal of optimizing their equity value. From high-level advice (e.g., term sheet negotiations or bridge rounds), to day-to-day fundraising challenges (e.g., investors materials or business plan review), the Bank acts as a financial mentor during the Growth Program.

TOWN HALL

We will help to shape your voice and message to connect with governments, institutions, media and business organizations.
