and another rocket ship journey begins …
Mumbai | October 17, 2016:
Amplifi – India’s first SaaS focused accelerator, has accepted 10 startups in India to join their 2nd cohort for 2016.
While the startups from the 1st cohort finished their Demo Days in Bengaluru (2nd July 2016) and Mumbai (9th July 2016), applications were opened for the 2nd cohort. Offline and online campaigns were launched. Applications were closed on 31 August 2016 and about 35 startups were shortlisted based on the form and pitch decks for a face-to-face pitch. Each startup got 90 minutes which included 30‐40 minutes of pitching their idea to the panel, followed by a detailed Q&A.
The panel consisted of Amplifi founders, advisors, and mentors from different parts of the world via gotomeeting. After several hectic days of pitching, the panel deliberated and shortlisted 10 startups from Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and New Delhi.
The inauguration ceremony was held at XIME (Amplifi supporting partner in Bengaluru) and was presided by Mr Srinath Batni, ex-Board Member of Infosys and co-founder Axilor. Mr Batni addressed the startups on entrepreneurship and gave them invaluable tips for success. Amplifi was represented by its Advisory Board Member Mr. Vishnu Bhat while the founders Sudarshan and Rohinton welcomed the Mumbai startups. The Pune startups participated online from the Extentia (Amplifi partner in Pune) office while the New Delhi and Hyderabad startups made it to Bengaluru in person.
Amplifi is very proud to announce its brand new cohort comprising of : Health-n-Me, Till POS, SuperWise, krackzee, Keito, Bestosys, Virtual Spaces, Sociograph Solutions, Cumulus Technologies & BricApp.
These startups have begun this challenging yet exciting expedition – to be mentored by the best people from the industry, interact with angel investors and venture capitalists, and enhance their product before finally pitching to hand-picked investors on Demo Day in January 2017.
Amplifi, CEO, Sudarshan Narayan added ‘We are very excited to work with some really exciting B2B SaaS startups and offer them an opportunity to access mentors and investors from around the world. Our last cohort was 6 with only 1 startup outside of Bengaluru. This time, our cohort is 10 and startups from various cities in India are part. The diversity of the startups is very very exciting.’
