Event description
Join us at the next Finimize New Delhi Community event where we'll discuss the evolution of Startup Incubators and Accelerators in India!

About this Event

Incubators and Accelerators have made a significant contribution to and will continue to play a vital role in the Indian startup space. Some well known names include - Surge by Sequoia, Misfits by Orios Venture Partners, GSF, Microsoft Accelerator, CIIE by IIM-Ahmedabad, Venture Catalyst and Rise by Barclays.

Incubators/accelerators improve the probability of survival of early stage startups. The primary role of an Incubator is to help nascent companies get through the initial idea stage while an Accelerator's role is to catalyse the growth at a slightly advanced stage of a startup's lifecycle. From providing mentorship, sharing product expertise to networking and fund raising opportunities, incubators can help build a startup from the ground up.

As these startups scale from idea to product they start solving problems for the society, strengthen the relevant industry and eventually contribute to growth of the economy. Many of India’s large startups themselves have been through an accelerator program.

Currently, India ranks third behind the US and China, when it comes to the number of incubators and accelerators. With the rise in the number of incubator/accelerator programmes and increasing competition amongst them, the onus will be on each incubator/accelerator to prove its value proposition and viability to build sustainable business models.

At our upcoming Finimize Community Roadshow event, we would like to discuss the changing role of incubators/accelerators and their increasing contribution to the startup ecosystem. Amongst other recent trends, we will be covering the below perspectives during our discussion:

Incubator/Accelerator perspective

• How has the role of incubators and accelerators evolved over time?; Growing competition amongst incubators/accelerators and how do they differentiate themselves; What are the key metrics used by incubators & accelerators to measure success?

Startup perspective

• What are the key offerings that a startup should look from an incubation/accelerator program?; Equity dilution appetite; Choosing the right incubator/accelerator
