From Our Founders

Nancy Yu
Co-founder and CEO, RDMD
"The main decision point was the personalization — not being put with a hundred other companies and going through a less tailored program."
Nadayar
Co-founder and CEO, Eden
"Just within the first month of the Village Global accelerator we made invaluable connections, and our vision and goals became sharper than ever!"
Derek Brown
Founder, Bunches
"Love having Village Global involved. Overall, huge success and 10x better than other comparable programs that I've been a part of. We have so much more momentum and connections to pursue."
Jo Varshney
PhD, Founder, VeriSIM Life
"Village Global helped me hire my co-founder, close sales leads, and introduced me to everyone in my $1m round, full-stop, including two key advisors, one very high up at Genentech"

From Our Luminaries

Reid Hoffman

Founder, LinkedIn

“I think Village’s innovative structure as a seed fund will lead to many interesting teams securing their first round of funding, and will improve the quality and quantity of companies that connect with major venture firms for their Series A & beyond.”

Sara Blakely

Founder, Spanx

“I love being an entrepreneur and I love supporting fellow entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our country, and especially as a woman, I’m grateful for the opportunities. I’m excited to be a part of Village.”

Mike Bloomberg

Entrepreneur & Philanthropist

“Most entrepreneurs are – to one extent or another – flying blind. That can be exciting but also lead to avoidable crashes. Village aims to help a new generation of entrepreneurs overcome challenges no degree or training can prepare them for.”

Ken Chenault

Former CEO, American Express

“I believe leadership is a privilege and I work every day to become a better leader. I love sharing the lessons I’ve learned in my own journey, and look forward to doing so with entrepreneurs and technologists in the Village network.”
