Introducing “Acceler8”, the Accelerator Program at 36Inc. This is a structured cohort-based program to enable selected startups to reach the next level they aspire for. The cohorts are 6 months long, and have a specific theme. We are excited to announce that the theme of the first cohort (Jan-Jun 2019) will be “Health Tech”.

The startup journey is not an easy one. There comes a point, in the startup lifecycle, where the startup is in need of advice, direction, mentorship and funding. This is where the Acceler8 would come in, and serve as a springboard for such startups.

36Inc. has designed this program to provide comprehensive and customized support, feedback sessions, mentorship, access to investor networks, skills development, a gateway to future customers. The program will provide an encouraging environment to help deserving high-potential startups thrive and succeed.

We pride ourselves on having audacious goals, like becoming the top Accelerator Program in central India. We set goals, and then put in everything to making them happen. We will motivate the Accelerator Cohorts to do the same.

Program Structure

Two cohorts will be selected every year – the Spring/Summer batch (Jan to June) and the Fall/Winter batch (July – Dec). 36Inc will select a few high-potential startups through a highly competitive process which will include problem validation, solution validation, business model validation, strategic fit with the Accelerator, and the potential of the team to succeed. The theme for the first cohort (Jan-Jun 2019) is “Health Tech”.

Creating the best support ecosystem to nurture and grow startups

The goal of the Acceler8 is, to act as a springboard and enabler for high-potential startups to get them to the next level, by providing accelerated knowledge and comprehensive support.

In order to create an enabling environment for the selected startups, the accelerator program includes 1:1 mentorship sessions with a select group of mentors. A formal industry partner will provide industry exposure and guidance to the startups. This would be augmented by industry visits, hands-on workshops by experts, Industry Connect, and networking sessions with investors.

The accelerator program would have a structured curriculum to provide enough guidance to the startups. Additionally, a Buddy Program will ensure that startups provide each other with support as well.

The program is designed to closely work with startups and have periodic reviews to track and monitor progress, regular feedback sessions, and scheduled events to get the startups closer to their goal in the short timespan of 6 months.

Additionally, 36Inc. will also provide assistance with registration and regulatory compliances as well as partner credits.
