In a nutshell, we bring the ecosystem to the founder rather than the founder having to knock doors. Turbostart is the brainchild of business veterans who understand the challenges of starting up and more importantly, scaling up. The programme is designed to help the founder navigate through market complexities and anything else that occupies considerable mind space.

 

Eligibility

An entity will be considered eligible for the
Turbostart programme if:

 

  • It is incorporated for a period of less than 10 years
  • Has a minimum viable product or proof of concept
  • It works towards innovation and development or
    improvement of products or processes or services
  • It has a scalable business model

Format

Turbostart launched in October 2019. The subsequent batch will open in April 2020. The programme will be run with the same schedule every 6 months. The larger vision is to consolidate India’s startup ecosystem through meaningful synergies and put the country’s best entrepreneurs under the spotlight.

What about confidentiality?

 

Turbostart understands the work that goes into building an idea and its vulnerabilities. The team is ethically committed to building scale for startups and owing to the volume of applicants, Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) will only be signed under exceptional circumstances and in mutual agreement with the founder(s) and the Turbostart team.
