India Accelerator is the first GAN partnered, mentorship driven, incubation program in India.
Headquartered in Gurgaon, India, IA runs mentorship driven incubation and acceleration programs for start ups in mobile technology, finance, gaming, e commerce, and mobility. Twice a year, we handpick up to 8 promising start ups, and help them build a business out of their ideas.
The program at India Accelerator is structured around three categories:
Acceleration: The acceleration program is directed towards start ups with existing business models. The acceleration program provides support to these organizations in several ways: Technology: designing and/or building their products, financial, with seed or series funding, and supportive, with access to our mentors, training programs, events, network, and otherwise.
While we welcome any good idea and invite such applications, our major focus is on the twin sectors of AgTech and HealthCare.
Our aim is to achieve both a financial return and a positive economic & social impact. Our guiding principle is “Accelerating with purpose,” i.e. to actively pursue positive social change, but not through philanthropy.
Fixed-term, cohort-based - two 90-days cycles a year, May through July and September through January.
Startups receive INR 15 Lakhs to INR 20 Lakhs in perks and services, with the potential to score follow-on funding after the demo day. And of course, the massive amount of external perks that our incubated startups receive from our 200+ GAN partners.
Intense, rapid and Mentorship-driven program, aimed at accelerating the growth.
Program culminates in a Demo Day with graduate companies pitching to the selected group of investors.
The startups inducted in the Accelerator Program will be working out of the India Accelerator coworking space for the entire duration of the program, during which we work intensively with them to get the company into the best shape possible.
Start Up Academy: The Start Up Academy helps founders during their ideation phase, and helps them build a real business ( model ) around their idea. The academy gives them access to resources to help validate their idea, build a MVP, test, research, and interact with founders of co - startups. Start ups with exceptional ideas are promoted to the acceleration program.
Co Work: Our office infrastructure helps start ups with office coworking space, general business assistance, access to exclusive events, and to a network of entrepreneurs, innovators, mentors, and friends.
Additionally, IA also provides Co Live solutions. We believe entrepreneurship is not a job, but rather a life style. We help founders incubated in our program achieve this, with state of the art living facilities, where they eat, sleep, code, converse and ideate with their team members, co - start ups, innovators, and are in constant touch with our mentors and gurus.
