For immediate release. -- India has seen amazing startups in the likes of Swiggy, Zomato, Flipkart, Ola, Yulu, Dream 11, Freshworks, CRED, and many more come out of the startup ecosystems in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, and Kochi. We have seen accelerators and incubators do an amazing job in helping startups mentor and raise funding. However, the essence of getting hands-on with the founders to help them with their sales, product growth, or finding the right problems of their customers in their initial stages is still overlooked.
Introducing to you, a virtual 30-day execution focussed zero-equity micro-accelerator by Draper Startup House and Foundership Accelerator starting May 7th, 2021.
Their team of founders comes from decades of experience in the form of Santosh Panda and Bimlesh Gundurao from Foundership, and Shashikiran Rao from Draper Startup House. Well-versed in product growth, community building, ecosystem development, sales, fundraising, and innovation in the fields of B2C, B2B, B2B2C, and SaaS, these veteran founders have now set out to empower early-stage founders.
They will support a startup with:
• Idea to MVP
• Community growth
• Frameworks to Scale
• Raising Angel/Seed Funding
• Startup & Agile Mindset
• Tech and Product Growth.
• Credits for cloud support, telephony, CRM, and more.
The essence of the program lies in building a like-minded community of founders, recognition of the startup within Draper Ecosystem, weekly deep dive hands-on sessions with founders, and a demo day with the investor’s from Draper Startup House Syndicate.
"A micro-movement venture, building cohorts to enable founders to tap in and tap out of knowledge, resources, peer to peer network and focus on one problem of the startup for a short period of 4 weeks, 8 weeks is what we are building here." - Santosh Panda, Co-founder of Foundership Accelerator said.
Shashikiran Rao, Co-founder of Draper Startup House (India and Europe) also shares, "With Foundership accelerator taking care of the founders along with Draper Startup House, we enabling these founders with access to a network of mentors, investors across the global scope of Tim Draper’s Entrepreneurship ecosystem is the perfect playbook a founder can get now”.
We want to target startups coming from anywhere in the world to gain access to this program and ignite their growth.
This program comes at a nominal cost of INR 45,000 for a startup where a maximum of 3 co-founders can actively participate in the program.
One of the startup founders whom we helped before quoted “I'll take an hour-long call with Santosh Panda and Bimlesh Gundurao over any MBA class. The amount & quality of insights and brainstorming is powerful“.
We believe that more startups need the right push at the right time to exponentially stand out and every startup business needs a unique set of expertise. With Foundership Accelerator and Draper Startup House Community, Entrepreneurship is never going to be a lonely journey. They will stand for you, work with you and solve your needs.
