The Philosophy

V VG assists entrepreneurs to build world class, high value businesses. VG is a unique and pioneering initiative in the Indian startup landscape, which draws from the tenets of ancient wisdom of guru-shishya parampara -- an eclectic mix of ethics, commitment, perseverance, skillset-honing, with tons of focus on execution. What has worked best through the best, we believe, can work wonders in today's highly-charged and competitive startup scenario as well, because the basic tenets of success still remain the same. 
  
Unlike a typical incubators and accelerators or early stage venture fund, the Gurukool embraces a startup for a longer time span, ranging from 3 to 7 years — providing them with hands on support through the twists and turns of business challenges, to make it worthy and confident about its business proposition.

At Venture Gurukool, we provide early stage ventures with funding support they need to get their ventures off the ground. It might back a founder or adopt an existing venture or invest alongside other funds or It might even internally develop something from its own team.

Our goal is to get the startup through the first phase where Startup has built something impressive enough to raise money on a larger scale. Then we introduce them to our network investors & strategic players in both India and overseas. 

We look for strong, balanced founding teams working on a compelling value proposition, who are able to demonstrate product-market fit, customer traction and revenue visibility.
