Emerging India Acceleration Program 2.0

Sangam Innovation Foundation successfully completed  Emerging India Acceleration Program 1.0 for its maiden cohort. The year-long program apart from launch, had a midterm retreat and a demo day for startups to showcase their products/services. During the program startups interacted with industry mentors from various fields eg. product development, customer development, legal, financial management & marketing through virtual workshops and field visits. Program supported startups for achieving product-market fit, refine business strategies for new market entry and become investment ready.
