Vento is a 5-months full-time, highly selective program in Turin in which talent will be paid to build their own startup and have the opportunity to be funded to launch it.
Vento is the Venture Builder of Exor Seeds, a VC fund investing in early-stage companies, focusing on discovering exceptional founders with the ambition to build great companies. Since 2018 Exor Seeds has backed over 60 startups globally with more than $450M.
“Find your team, develop your idea, get funded, deploy your startup.”
HOW IT WORKS
First, they will select the 40 most brilliant minds to join Vento and create amazing teams. Talents will be free to choose his/her co-founders, and Vento will provide talents with support and experience to make sure they find the best match.
Participants don’t need to have an idea to participate because Vento has worked with leading companies and startups that have shared their direct experience in the market with them. This way, the Vento team will make sure that each team will have the possibility to start from a validated problem.
Each participant will go through a team building, research, design, testing, and implementation journey. Get ready for some crazy fast-paced rollercoaster of emotions, and their startup will take off at the end of the ride.
In a nutshell, during the first three months of the program (Jan-Apr 2023), the focus will be on finding the best team and idea to develop.
At the end of these three months, each participant will have a chance to pitch in front of the investment committee and receive its pre-seed funding.
In the following two months (Apr-Jun 2023), the focus will be on the solution’s actual development and deployment.
