We are very pleased to celebrate the successful completion of our inaugural class of 78 ambitious entrepreneurs from our London based Venture Creation Lab (VCL) programme.

The VCL programme is an expert-led accelerator, which allows students to design and develop an enterprising social business opportunity. Students can opt to enrol in the VCL programme instead of a placement and compete for funding to develop and launch a company. As an international student, this could potentially lead to securing a Graduate Entrepreneur visa.

The aim is to identify current issues businesses are facing and create new innovative solutions. Below is a list of our shortlisted students and 4 of our finalists including our VCL winner, Ojasvi Mehta.

The Influencer Dissect

Ojasvi Mehta, Founder and CEO

A game changing meeting place for brands and influencers

Influencer marketing is making serious waves in India - impacting buying decisions, trends and making new advertising channels. But India is yet to witness the coming together of social media power houses on one platform and this is where the real change happens.

Influencer Dissect is an emporium for the brands and influencers to meet. We help brands and influencers to partner up and stand out as a consumer oriented brand. People trust people. Help your audience explore new territories with one of our influencers.

Coming Home

Disha Patel, Founder and CEO

Authentic Indian cuisine that will take you home

We love to travel, but we miss home. Memories of samosas at our favourite corner shop with friends or our mom's hot pakora, or festivals with family. Every home has a story, what's yours? 

There are tons of recipes available on the internet but you can't get home authentic recipes, made with quality ingredients and with a story behind them.

Coming Home's sweet treats, recipe boxes and gift packs take travellers home, right from where they are.

Greenlife Eco Dinnerware

Dharaben Shah, Founder and CEO

Eco-friendly dinnerware and packaging to overcome plastic pollution

We are eating more on the go than ever before, but our disposable packaging is contributing to plastic waste. Each year, more than 8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean and land, which are directly impacting our environment, marine species and human health. 

Greenlife has found a solution - dinnerware that is 100% natural, sturdy, stylish, biodegradable, home compostable, chemical free and microwave safe. 

Our dinnerware is made from the fallen leaves of palm trees and through our supplier relationships, we are bringing this product to restaurants, cafes, food vans and catering suppliers. And that's just the start. Through our tie ups with NGOs we will scale. Join us.
