What People Say
Intelak collaborated with the Kerala Startup Mission and we were really impressed with the quality of the startups that pitched at the reverse pitch session.
Such sessions create the platforms for startups and corporates to connect and explore partnerships on an eye to eye level.

Strategic Allies Limited (SAL) has been working with Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) for the last 18 months with the objective of finding innovative companies that are suitable for their varied technology challenges.We have found KSUM very easy to deal with and our business contact at KSUM is very approachable, as well as committed in ensuring the start-ups follow-up with the opportunities.  So far,  KSUM has always been able to find interesting companies to put forward!

Unlike other Accelerator programs, KSUM has a very strong foundation and network of startups. We had participated with them in the Reverse Pitch with Kerala startups where we interacted one on one with entrepreneurs of different and varied domains to participate in the Bosch DNA cohort. The program is very focused and follows a business thought leadership approach.
Looking forward to partnering with KSUM on our next BOSCH DNA COHORT launch.

It has been a fantastic experience working with the Kerala Startup Mission who do some amazing work for startups in Kerala by providing them support and connecting them to the right ecosystem who can help these companies not just grow nationally but also expand internationally to cities like London via stakeholders like us, London and Partners. I have enjoyed working with the team on joint events where they have been very proactive and collaborative

In Hitachi India, we believe in a more resilient digital ecosystem supporting business continuity and a high quality of life for its citizens.  In association with Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), we accelerated a national innovation contest inviting startups from all around India to help develop innovative digital solutions supporting small merchants. We came across a constructively efficacious event and KSUM was remarkable in operational and managerial direction. The event has enabled us to explore more on the latent talent of the startup community in India, that could really thrive for impending associations.
