EDUGILD™ accelerator program is dedicated to startups working in the EdTech space. EDUGILD™ offers founders of intense mentoring to expedite product development. Selected startups get mentored by successful industry leaders and also get a platform to beta test their products / solutions. Start-up founder(s) will work along with an equally passionate peer group to develop creative ideas. Mentors with a variety of specialty areas provide their expertise and guidance and create an environment that encourages the spirit of innovation, challenges, and calculated risk-taking.
The program features multiple interactions with mentors, both online as well as off. Workshops and intensive session of topics most relevant to founders are held twice a week. Each week will focus on one or more topics related to various aspects of creating successful businesses. Apart from strategy and finance, we are particularly keen on people and teams. We believe that it is the people in the organization that often matter more than the products. If the team is awesome, the products will surely be commendable.
Any passionate entrepreneur (or a small team) with a technology based solution to a real world problem in the education and learning space is welcome to apply. Founders must have done some fundamental research and conducted an initial feasibility. Ideally, you have built a prototype or working model, and/or have a customer or two, paying or otherwise, it is not an absolute requirement. Start-ups that have launched products in the past but reached a plateau and need a second boost are also encouraged to apply.
