The Mideva Ventures Program is an opportunity for graduates to kickstart their entrepreneurship journey through a 6-9 months immersive and hands-on program. The selected fellows learn how to run a startup venture by actually starting and running one based on an already validated idea/problem with support and guidance. Over the 6-9 months, the team is expected to have created a minimum viable product, acquired early(paying) customers and achieved a product-market fit. Our first pilot program runs from March to December, 2018.
