About Venture Catalyst Program

The Venture Catalyst program at YSpace supports early stage technology based ventures to refine their innovative concepts and validate the business opportunity. Founders will engage in a FREE 6-week training and mentorship program to help validate their startup idea and bring a proof-of-concept to life. Founders will have unique access to interactive online workshops, expert mentorship, peer support, and startup resources needed to cultivate your ideas into a successful business.

 

The program is designed to help you go from concept validation to launching a Minimum Viable Prototype (MVP). You will be increasing your knowledge base through weekly interactive online workshops facilitated by startup experts. Ventures will also engage in developing company goals, hold biweekly check-ins with the program mentors, and weekly founder led peer support sessions. The program’s ultimate goal is to help you understand and actively execute the foundational components of launching your startup over the 6-weeks.
