YACHTING VENTURES – Entrepreneur Support Programme

Are you thinking about launching or scaling a startup? Then Yachting Ventures will be able to help you. They are looking for ambitious, mission-driven entrepreneurs that want to bring innovative products and services to the yachting space. The aim is to build a global network of startup support and accelerate what has traditionally been an industry slow to adapt to change. 

Applications for their next cohort starts 22nd February and are now officially open and will close on 29th January 2021. They will be accepting approximately 20 startups after a thorough review of all applications submitted.  There have already been +50 pre-registrations for the next programme so Yachting Ventures 2.0 is expected to be huge with a very strong set of founders.

Onno Ebbens Managing Director of ACREW will again be a mentor for the upcoming 2021 programme that still has space available. If you would like to apply for mentorship, there are just a couple weeks left to sign up.

The YV startup accelerator supports entrepreneurs through a fixed-term programme that includes mentorship, connections and educational content. It is an immersive experience, aiming to accelerate the growth of early-stage ventures by compressing years’ worth of learning into just a few months. 

YV are completely remote and the course is designed to fit around other commitments. All the sessions are recorded and content is accessible online, so founders can work at their own pace – wherever they are in the world.  YV are stage-agnostic and each of the 10 weeks represents a different stage in the startup journey, from initial idea validation through to growth strategies and attracting investment. 

Gabriella Richardson, the founder of YV, grew up on the island of Mallorca and worked as a charter broker for Camper & Nicholsons before moving to London and working for tech startup SeedLegals. At SeedLegals, she worked with founders, startup accelerators and investors to help automate the fundraising process.
