India DeepTech Accelerator program is no-equity no-grant program intended for deeptech startups in India to access top corporates, mentors and investors. The target startups are the ones who have a product ready to be adopted by customers or those who are looking to hit the market in the next 6-12 months. The areas of focus for the first cohort (Feb-Apr 2021) are Industrial Automation, Cybersecurity and Genomics.
This accelerator program will run for about 6 weeks in Feb-Apr 2021, virtually. Attendance will be compulsory for two 90-120 min sessions per week along with one or two mentor sessions. This program will end with a demo day in April 2021. As a direct consequence of participating in the program, founders can expect to get validation for their business idea, a much better understanding of their path to market and best practices about pitching to an investor and building a team. During or before the demo day, the participants will be able to engage with angels and VCs who have an interest in deeptech.
Application for the first cohort are now open. Last date is Feb 12th, 2021.
