Tips to Apply

Acceptance into the VC Lab venture capital accelerator, called Genesis, is competitive. In Cohort 4, over 1,700 general partners applied, and only 150 firms were enrolled, including firms working on second and third funds. Cohort 5 is looking to have more demand.

The VC Lab admissions team looks for three things with each applicant.

  1. Differentiated vision for a market
  2. Exceptional professional network
  3. History of industry leadership

Below are four tips to help you prepare the best application.

  1. Familiarize yourself with the free four-month program and our “learn by doing” methodology on the homepage.
  2. Review the Mensarius Oath for ethical investing, which you will be asked to publicly support when enrolling.
  3. Refine your investment Thesis using help from this Pre-Curriculum to prepare your application.
  4. Create an engaging and memorable two minute video with your fellow Managing Partners.

The application form itself only takes a few minutes to complete. Start the application at the link below.
