100X.VC invests in early-stage startups through iSafe Notes to provide these startups with capital, expert mentorship, access to a network of domestic and global investors, and promote the startups for the next-stage fundraise and prep them to scale.
We provide startups seed capital of INR 12.5 million using iSAFE notes as the first cheque. We move fast. We value time
After investing in a startup, 100X.VC effectively becomes their coach, strategy consultant, business mentor, and trusted advisor. We work closely with founders helping them get to the next round of funding and beyond.
Ideas are fragile. We nurture them at 100X.VC.
“It acts as a Vehicle which drives Founders reach the right goal.”
“This cohort actually felt like 100X Gurukul was actually giving back, no strings attached. In fact for 1st time founders it's a gold mine.”
“I was looking for startup and entrepreneurship courses online prior to Gurukul because I don't know the basics of a startup that I have learned in the 100X Gurukul. It has changed a lot for me and made my journey easy and hurdle free at least for the starting up.”
Curated Startups will be invited to attend Gurukul Online.
There is no set commitment expected from the entrepreneurs. There will be 12 weekly sessions held during the course of the program consisting of live as well as recorded videos. The recordings of the live videos will be put on the website after the session is over. You can watch the videos as per your convenience any time during those 12 weeks.
Classroom sessions will be taught by various mentors consisting of experienced entrepreneurs, business professionals, and university instructors
There are not traditional grades, though teams are expected to be making consistent progress on their startups, and students must attend their core curriculum classes plus all elective classes to which they sign up. They are also expected to be actively present in all of their live classes which includes having their videos on and engaging in discussions.
Gurukul is about starting/working on real companies, not about an academic experience, so we expect students to take responsibility for their own progress and commit fully to the process.
