Founder of Baru
“Prepare 4 VC has been valuable beyond the bootcamp experience. The team, Chris, Jason, and Steve, has been supportive over the past year since Baru's graduation from the program. They've each presented business & funding opportunities and introductions that would have never crossed my radar were they not already on the lookout for me."
Founder of Darshana
“I received great resources, knowledge and network from the Prepare 4 VC team. Coming into the program, Darshana was figuring out many things in terms of product and services. After our participation in the cohort program, we continued our relationship with partnerships. Many doors have since been opened for us.”
Akhil Suresh Nair
Founder of Xena Intelligence
"There are few moments in the life of an entrepreneur where one looks back to see a decision that changed the course of their startup's journey, for me it was to join the Prepare4VC community. The support and encouragement that early on in an entrepreneur's life is truly the spark that's needed to power through the challenges that lay ahead. Jason's, Steve's, Chris's, Gil's and Yev's words of wisdom and smiling faces helped mold the initial milestones of my startup idea and prepared me for the arduous yet fulfilling journey that I had decided to embark on. I'm still in close touch with them till date and they continue to be my longest and most passionate well-wishers"
