Business Wire IndiaAxilor Ventures announced today the call for applications for its Summer 2016 accelerator batch starting in March. For its third batch, Axilor is looking to select 12 promising start-ups with tech-enabled solutions for tough problems in e-commerce (B2C and B2B), healthcare and clean-tech. The applications close on 4 March 2016.
The Axilor Accelerator program is one of the few structured programs in the country to help entrepreneurs at early stages of their idea to complete customer validation and become ready for seed investment. In addition, the program comes with a host of benefits including a grant, opportunity to work with a vibrant community of entrepreneurs, partner benefits from leading tech companies, access to talent and experienced mentors.
Ganapathy Venugopal, Co-founder and CEO Axilor Ventures said, "For most founders in early stages of their idea, the key challenge is to gather evidence for three important questions - whether they are working on something people want, in what form are people willing to consume it and whether there is any willingness to pay (and who will that be). Answering these will help them build products their customers will love and pay for, gain traction and become investible faster. Our 100-day program helps them with these in an environment where they can learn and benchmark with other entrepreneurs."
The program is run out of its sprawling 20,000 square feet campus which is fast emerging as the start-up hub in South Bangalore. Its Accelerator alumni includes Discover Dollar, Placeoforigin, Awesummly, Peersome, Letspool and Storewalk. Through its Early Stage Funding program, it has also invested in Sellerworx, EasyFix, mUrgency, and Place of Origin.
