Thanks for visiting.
I’m in the process of building Catalyzer, a Startup Accelerator and Commune in India. Catalyzer offers 101 days Startup 101 Accelerator Program and 15 days Startup 15 Business Portfolio Kickstart Program in India.
The concept of startup or seed accelerator gained popularity after Silicon Valley based tech startup accelerator, YCombinator‘s success; followed by David Cohen’s TechStars which started operating out of Colorado. Most of theses accelerators operator in the technology space.
Startup accelerators takes on teams with bright ideas and helps them grow by providing access to seed capital, office space, mentors (usually entrepreneurs who have gone through the startup struggling phase), connections to industry experts and investors; all resources startups might otherwise struggle to find.
Catalyzer Startup Accelerator & Commune focuses on startups in technology, non-technology (education, environment, healthcare, etc.) and social enterprise (for profit and non profit) space.
Startup founders working on their ideas can email me. Make sure you reveal only what you are comfortable with. Subsequently, you can formally submit your idea at Catalyzer website. We like working with teams who are willing to learn as well as teach in a participatory environment. Mutual give and take, experiential learning and exchange and sharing of ideas will be central to Catalyzer.
Though an idea is important, more important is the individual’s ability to execute the idea. Catalyzer aims to equip startups with team work and communication skills , while turning their ideas into reality . At Catalyzer we are working to build a community that will be inclusive of all types of ideas and people from different cultures and varied backgrounds . An ecosystem and a relationship which continues beyond the interaction is at the heart of conceptualization and implementation of Catalyzer. We expect all participants to understand and contribute to the community, ” Its not always about what you get, its about what you give back”.
