A startup accelerator session was conducted in the institute by the India Accelerator on February 18, 2021 in the APJ auditorium at 3:00 pm. Students actively participated in the program in physically as well as online modes. India Accelerator is India’s one and only Global Accelerator Network backed institution, helping startups realize their true potential by accelerating them into the next phase of growth. It is a leading seed-stage technology accelerator in NCR and one of the fastest-growing accelerators in Asia. India Accelerator has supported 60+ startups in 5 cohorts.
India Accelerator programs (Cyber Security, AgriTech, HealthTech, Social Impact, DeepTech, Sports Media & Amp; Entertainment) are spread over 4 months where 8-10 selected startups are provided with technology, business services, networking, and incubation space along with intense mentoring focused on the individuality of product and business development. It’s a structured program that brings the building blocks for a startup under one roof – the much needed mentorship, the network, the technology, the peripheral services (like legal, financial etc.) and last but not the least, the capital. The talk was addressed by Dr. Ashish Bhatia, founder and MD of India Accelerator and his team. He highlighted the emergence of startups in India as a leading choice after U.S. The key features of talk was how to formulate the fresh idea as problem statement of startup, where to apply for venture funding, whom to apply for investment and how to create networking for selling of product.
The session was extremely interactive and inspirational. All the students actively participated in the same and were successfully motivated to become the innovators rather than simply serving MNC’s. The additional support was extended in all respect by Vice Chairman, Sh. Rakesh Tayal.
