After the success of our inaugural program which established the Techstars Bangalore Accelerator as the premier seed stage accelerator in India, we are excited to announce that applications are now open for the Techstars Bangalore Class of 2020. Over the next 13 weeks, we’ll be scouting for 10 of the world's best startups building solutions for emerging markets.

What are we looking for?

    • People, people, people - Great companies start with great people. Great teams have diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Your core team should be in place, covering the important functions of your early stage business.
    • Personal & professional connection to your idea - A deep professional or personal connection within the team to the problem you're working to solve, and/or the customer you’re working to serve. 
    • Customer insight - Customer insight that is deeply held within your team, but not widely known or accepted outside of it.
    • Progress - It could be a POC, beta release or you could (but don’t need to) have an established revenue stream. To get the most out of Techstars you should have some degree of customer feedback.

Applications close October 13th, 2019 and the program will run from January 27th, 2020 - April 23rd, 2020.

We are looking forward to meeting as many entrepreneurs, investors, and community leaders as possible. We’ll be hosting a combination of office hours, events, and meetups in each of these cities. Check out our upcoming stops below and sign up:
