“Time and again we saw first time entrepreneurs approaching Jaarvis Accelerator with similar fundamental queries on different stages of startups. On our side, we felt this is basic knowledge that any entrepreneur should have and asked them to Google it. However, they would end up getting confused with so many conflicting and unstructured entrepreneurship resources available on Internet. Startup CEO app was born.” – Anil Chhikara
Jaarvis only accelerates startups they invest in and “so, there is a lot to be done from portfolio management to VC connect and angel network connect.”
A startup needs funding to thrive and scale. In last few years, startup investment has become a serious business in the subcontinent. Many individuals, successful entrepreneurs, 2nd and 3rd generation family business owners, corporate executives have started to invest in startups. As a result startup-fund became readily available……or so it seemed.
Aman Singh (Founder | Director, R2 Robotronics) in a conversation with Techstory said, “One such company is ESRI, one of the biggest GIS providers globally. We pitched our idea to them to take their systems on our platforms, and they liked our idea, that is how we managed to get the tag of “Emerging Business Partner” from them. We are continuously talking to more and more software vendors on how efficiently can their systems reach the end customer.”
