The Philosophy

VVenture Gurukool 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 the typical incubators and accelerators, the Gurukool embraces a startup for a longer time span, ranging from 3 to 7 years -- hand-holding it through the twists and turns of business challenges, to make it worthy and confident about its next round of funding. This adds to an investor's ROI expectations and minimises unfortunate write-offs, thereby driving a bullish sentiment for upcoming and aspiring entrepreneurs.
