I caught up with Kellie Clark, Director of Programs at Innovation Depot, to learn more about Vision ID.

Kellie gave some helpful insight on program material. Firstly, it covers broad topics like the difference between a small biz and a startup. Later on, the more technical themes like product market fit and scalability come into play. She also shared her favorite part of the program, which is the opportunity to “demystify” the startup world and connect with an untapped network of potential entrepreneurs.

“Vision ID is unique because there is no pressure, no expectation to perform, no pressure to meet a metric. It exists purely as a resource for individuals in our community who have an interest in launching a startup at some point in their entrepreneurship journey.”

  • Voltage: a flexible, 6-week program for startup founders who have an idea for a tech or tech-enabled business.
  • Velocity: an accelerated 13-week program designed for founders that are ready to go “all in” on their business and commit full-time.
