The Class 09 HomeRun Masterclass Series

After being chosen for Class 09, a startup is invited to Mumbai for the HomeRun Masterclass Series. A home run is a difficult feat to achieve in a baseball game. When a player hits a home run, it scores a run even if no other factors (people on base) are present. This means it's the best type of hit possible. The HomeRun Series MasterClass is a 6-week structured curriculum where these entrepreneurs can learn business building alongside the world's best industry experts, mentors, venture capitalists, and founders of successful startups. 

We believe the barrier to entry for entrepreneurs to scale and shape a startup from product to large business is still too high. The masterclass sessions help transform knowledge into impact and drive innovation in your startup. We encourage and inspire these entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams. There is a vast ecosystem of resources that supports the unique needs of these Indian startup entrepreneurs both inside and outside the classroom training. 

Additionally, the 100X team starts working closely with the founding team on various aspects of the business, from product improvement to business model to pricing to financial modelling, hiring key team members and addressing various gaps in mutual consultation with the founders.100X Works with Founders in 3 broad manners:

HomeRun Masterclasses
​​It is a 6-week in-person classroom engagement to provide 100X.VC portfolio entrepreneurs with a structured framework consisting of interactive knowledge sessions on essential aspects of bringing a product to the market. The founders get enrolled in exclusive masterclasses with the 100X Team and 50+ mentors.
Network Access
Founders are given open access to 100X’s Business Network of Advisors, Mentors, Corporates, CXOs, 100X Alumni Founders, and more. Each connection compounds the value of the startup. Through the HomeRun Masterclass Series, the startup founders bond to form a fellowship & community like none other.
VC Pitch Day
After the HomeRun Series, startup founders get an opportunity to showcase their work to a curated set of investors. This invite-based event helps them build their next round of funding. The event is attended by all the top Angels, Family Offices, Micro VCs, Corporate Funds and VC funds of India.
