Collide Village Startup Incubation Program (CVIP) is not about getting you to focus on creating investor’s pitch deck and nor do we believe that you should focus your valuable time, effort and money is areas which will lead you to nowhere, as it is being coached in many other programs. Instead, our proven, structured program helps entrepreneurs get the progress in just 2 months. Plus, our classes are held at night or weekends, so you can keep your day job.

Why a Startup Incubation program?

Collide Village runs the successful Collide Village Incubator Program (CVIP) for technology startups that requires team members to commit full time to the program. We have often been asked if we could offer a technology incubation program for entrepreneurs who may not be ready to leave their current position, but who want to test the viability of their startup idea.

So, we did it for you!

What entrepreneurs say about us…

  • “The 8-week incubator that Collide Village conducted was rigorous, thought-provoking, and educational. Tahir did an excellent job of driving home the principles of evidence-based entrepreneurship. He introduced us to tools such as the business model canvas, which forces you to think about the value proposition of your idea objectively and impartially – very difficult for startup founders to do by themselves. But Tahir helped us through the process very effectively. I feel like I now possess all the necessary tools and the mindset to approach any startup idea in the “proper” way: look at the data and see where it leads you.”


    Yeshwant Muthusamy, Ph.D.

    Owner and Principal of Yeshvik Solutions, LLC

  • “Collide Village is a different experience from an accelerator like TechStars or Y Combinator that focus on funding and a high-visibility demo day. The Collide Village process is about delivering results and continuous improvement in the fundamental business week over week. We were always a metrics-driven company, but the Collide Village program brought this into clearer focus and provided external accountability.”


    Nathan Roach

    CEO and Founder of MassVenture

  • “Collide Village Program did wonders for me and my startup company. I entered the program with an idea and a lot of energy. CVAP helped put method to the madness and by the end of the program, we had an MVP, knew our customers, and were ready to raise money.”


    Dave Krauss

    CEO and Co-Founder of NoiseAware

  • “Over the course of the 3 months, we got our first customer and a solid foundation for our business. More importantly, the hypothesis driven approach, has become ingrained in our thinking and has proven its use on many occasions.”


    Srikanth Srinivas

    CEO and Co-founder of Rapidi2i

  • “CollideVillage has been instrumental in introducing us to data-centric and scientific ways to run our startup. We were in business for two years in 2017 when Tahir invited us to the Collidathon and subsequently to his specialized incubation program. The knowledge and practical insights that we imbibed during the program has changed the way we approach our business now. We are fairly confident that we have evolved as a Company in last one year and Collide Village and Tahir have a major contributions in that. My sincere gratitude for the guidance and am sure we will be reaching out to each other in times to come for exchanging notes!”
