11 Late-Stage Startups Join the Bangalore Accelerator’s Spring 2015 Batch
In February, we opened our doors to 11 startups—from IoT to apps to payment platforms—in order to help these technology companies gear up and take the market by storm. This batch is like no other. Handpicked from 1400 applicants over the course of a 12-week long selection process, these companies are later stage startups: they have customers, they have revenue, and they mean business!
So we cut straight to the chase and kicked off a power-packed two-week module by building their operating plans. Once our batch 6 startups had a clear, milestone-based execution plan, we spent the rest of Week One on individual reviews of their businesses, technology, and marketing plans. We wrapped up the week with a much deserved offsite gathering.
The entire second week was spent completing a Stakeholder Development Workshop, another first for us, which brought some amazing insights to the group. The startups acquired a deeper understanding of their respective customers, competitors, investors, and other stakeholders. The week concluded with a Mentor Matchup at a brewery where founders had the opportunity to meet several renowned leaders from the startup community.
The race to June 18th has begun, when these startups will present their businesses during ThinkNext’s Summer 2015 session—and show the world what the future of technology looks like.
Please help us welcome batch 6 to the Bangalore Accelerator!
