Learn How to Build a Business with GaryVee

A new, ten-week incubation program for top operators to learn, and apply, the Vayner ecosystem approach to leadership and entrepreneurship. Work directly with teams and executives across VaynerX and Gary's network to refine your entrepreneurial skills while helping build businesses and products.

AVAILABLE FOR DAY ONE FELLOWS

program overview

The VX Incubator is a ten-week program run by the team at VaynerX. During the ten weeks, you'll spend time being mentored by Gary and Gary's network of business operators and entrepreneurs, learning Gary's specific approach to leadership and entrepreneurship.

You'll embed with a variety of companies Gary's involved in across his personal investments, VaynerX, and personal relationships, taking on projects from business leaders to put your learnings into action.

And you'll collaborate on new concepts that Gary and these teams are incubating across web3, consumer products, NFTs, the metaverse and more.  In many ways, consider this as much if not more of a COO-focused program, focusing on operating and managing a business.

what happens
after ten weeks?

As you work with Gary and his hand-selected executives, we'll have an ongoing discussion about your interests and potential areas of focus. While we can't guarantee anything, it is our hope to create an opportunity coming out of the program that marries these areas of interest with a long-term role or project including...

  • Launching a new business venture in partnership with Gary.
  • Taking an opportunity at an already existing company owned or co-owned by Gary including VaynerX, VCR Group, VaynerSports, and others.
  • Being connected to a company or investor in Gary's network for a role or funding opportunity

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the time commitment?

The VaynerX incubator is designed to be a part time program. The time commitment can range from 10-20 hours per week, depending on factors including your availability and the projects selected for you.

Can I apply if I’m already working on my own startup?

Yes, but the VX incubator is designed to identify talent for the next VaynerX portfolio company. If you are far enough into your venture that you wouldn’t leave for the chance to work with Gary, then the VXI isn’t for you at this time.

Where is this located?

Much of the program will happen virtually, but certain meetings and assignments will require being in NYC. We also prefer candidates in or near NYC as future opportunities within VaynerX are centered there.

Who will I be working with?

The roster of VaynerX executives who will lead sessions and projects will be put together closer to the launch of the program, and will take into account the experience and interests of the selected candidates.

Is there a stipend?

Yes, we value your time and contribution during this program. The stipend will be scaled up or down depending on the availability of each selected candidate.

What is the interview process like?

We will hold 1-2 rounds of interviews before a final round with Gary himself. You will be informed promptly if not selected for each round.

To be eligible for the VX Incubator you must first be a member of the Day One Fellowship - a curated community of top operators and entrepreneurs. Joining the Day One Fellowship grants you access to the Day One community of founders, investors and partners, including VaynerX and the VX Incubator.
