THE VINETTA COLLECTIVE

WHO

Technology leaders across a range of sectors, who have proven business models, teams and live products. They are ready for growth, scale and traction and have identifiable needs that we can fill.

All Collective startups have at least 6-8 months runway and are ready for scale, traction and significant revenue generation.  Founders are post Accelerator but generally Pre-Series. Collective Founders are chosen because they are thinking ahead of the curve and practice business with a clear vision for success that includes both social and economic returns.   Our Founders are the Best of the Best!

THE OPPORTUNITY

Being a part of The Collective is meant to  elevate you above the noise. Building a business is hard especially with limited resources.

We leverage our resources on your behalf to get you there faster and smarter.  We save you time and we save you money by giving you premium access to internal members within our network and to The Vinetta Project’s extended network.

Testimonials

I am impressed with the women entrepreneurs that Vinetta brought to pitch. The quality of the entrepreneurs presenting at events is reflective of Vinetta as an organization: professional and results-oriented.

Nanxi Lu, Enplug


For entrepreneurs the strengths are in networks. Vinetta gets that and supports female founders across the globe by giving them access to a community of like-minded founders, investors and industry experts who are eager to work collaboratively to help smart women access the resources they need to succeed in tech.


Agnes Kozera, Famebit


A lot of people talk about helping female founders but Vinetta is one of the few organizations that is actually doing something about it. In the words of Mark Suster, “I invest in lines, not dots,” and Vinetta helped me to establish several useful relationships for product, promotion, and funding.
