K - Accelerator Program is a 3 month virtual program with a one week residential program in Bengaluru or Mumbai, designed specifically to give national level exposure to startups who have started generating traction. Kerala Startup Mission has joined hands with Zone Startups India to roll out this program to help startups get market validation for products, meet with relevant customer and industry leaders, and connect with potential investors.
We got valuable insight and feedback for our pitch, and were able to gather a lot of information from the workshops held during the residential bootcamp in Bangalore. Post the program, we came out with an improved vision and a refined product pitch.
Exposure we got during the one week program at Mumbai was good. The industry connects given by Zone was relevant to my area of business and I have some of them as my customer now. Such opportunities will help our businesses to reach the next level.
There were not one area in our business that was left untouched by the K-accelerator mentors.We got a lot of insights and were able to move faster than before with the constant support of the team. Super helpful and valuable to the core.
After K-Accelerator program, a dramatic change happened is in our pitch deck and the way we pitch to Investors.Now we are more confident that we can convince people with our pitch.
Zone startup team has great network and could really help connect startups with industry leaders and corporate partners. As first time entrepreneurs many of us did not know this, hardly knew how or whom to reach out to.I was fortunate to get connected to nearly 8 banks and fintech experts,but I felt others in the group were not able to make use of Zone startup's full potential.
