Startups can apply for selection at bit.ly/sblaunchpad2020 and the last date to apply for the program is 31st May 2020.
Founded in 2015 by Manish Aggarwal and Amit Singal, Startup Buddy provides services ranging from Incorporation, Accounting, Taxation, Payroll, IPR, Marketing, Legal and Secretarial Compliance to startups in India and abroad. This program is a step towards creating a platform for all kind of support to startups at single place. The program will provide support to entrepreneurs which will help them focus on their products and target market.
Startup Buddy has global partnerships with various incubators and accelerators including GSF, Amplifi, India Accelerator, AIC-BIMTECH, SMVDU-TBIC, AIC-Great Lakes, Gastrotope, 100 Open Startups, 91Springboard, FoundersClick Inc, Mainstage Incubator to support Startup Ecosystem. Startup Buddy is actively working with various funds to provide deal structuring, advisory, due diligence, legal services etc at global levels.
“Our global ecosystem of mentors, advisors, investors and EiRs will help startups to minimize the chances of failure” said Amit Singal, Cofounder of Startup Buddy.
“There are a lot of challenges which founders face and these may take away the focus from the real product and business development. Once we are under able guidance and umbrella of services to support us, we can focus better to achieve higher efficiency for our startup” said Aparajita Prasad, Founder of MetaConnect Consulting and Consulting Partner for the program.
Varad Krishna, Founder of 100 Open Startups and Global Strategy Partner for the program says “Over the years, we have seen a lot of struggling startups bouncing back on track once they have been given the correct mentorship, support and connects. This is a proven formula globally.” He added “Top 3 startups of the program will qualify to attend the 100 Open Startups Global Level 4 Events happening in Various Startups Capitals Worldwide.”
“A lot of times founders are unaware of finer aspects and end up losing a lot of time over them like getting sued for patent infringement of their own invention. Launchpad would act as an enabler to speed up the growth of early stage startups by forming strong foundation with help of Intellectual Property”, said Vivek Dahiya, Director of Startup Buddy.
As part of this unique program, the startups will be mentored by successful founders, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs. Every startup will get dedicated mentors who will handhold the startup during entire program duration. Mock pitches will be part of the program for exposure to the investment process. Free credits and service support from partners will help in cost saving.
StartupBuddy Team consists of Manish Aggarwal (Cofounder), Amit Singal (Cofounder & CEO), Rakhee Singal (Cofounder & COO), Vivek Dahiya (Director), Saurabh Trivedi (Director), Shubham Garg, Kunal Singhal & Aparajita Prasad. All of them are from different background and would help selected startups.
