The accelerator programme is a four to six-month-long course that will offer one-on-one mentoring support, investor connect, business connect and perfecting pitch decks for fundraising.  

Indian Angel Network (IAN) and IIT Kanpur, through its technology business incubator, Startup Incubation and Innovation Centre (SIIC), have joined hands to launch the “IAN - IIT Kanpur Future Tech Accelerator Programme”. The accelerator programme was launched on January 16 at IIT Kanpur’s outreach centre in Noida. 

The eight shortlisted startups for the first batch of the programme are Yantram Medtech, Arthavedika Tech, ProPlant, Workers Union Support, Secure Blink, Starwinglobal Era, Arishti Info Labs, and Cyber Nexa. The accelerator programme is a four to six month long course that will offer one-on-one mentoring support, investor connect, business connect and perfecting pitch decks for fundraising.  

Prof Amitabha Bandyopadhyay, co-professor in-charge (incubation & innovation), said, “This accelerator programme offers fundamental support to the early-stage startups aimed at making them revenue-regenerating businesses. I am positive that the shortlisted cohort will do justice to the objectives of this program and will emerge as successful startups. It is a much-required intervention towards strengthening the national startup ecosystem. As a partnering institute, I look forward to its successful execution and the outcomes we achieve through it. Best wishes.”  

Rajnish Kapur, Managing Partner, IAN Fund, said, “This programme is designed to help startups understand their target market, shape their product better, improve their storytelling ability for investors, and ultimately raise money up to INR 30 crore. In our maiden cohort, the accelerator will be working with eight companies from sectors ranging from health tech to social impact.” 

He said, “This collaboration will provide startups with access to cutting-edge technology, industry connections, and mentorship from successful entrepreneurs and investors.”
