Mentorship-driven Techstars Bangalore in May announced it has selected nine Indian startups for its third cohort in India. The acceleration programme will run virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic and each selected startup will get an investment of $120,000. “It’s heartening to see how Indian founders are increasingly focusing more on IP, and building for global markets, and not just India. These only go to create better outcomes, sustainable business models and more value creation for investors,” said Dhritiman Hui, Managing Director, Techstars Bangalore.

Among the nine chosen start-ups are AfterShoot that is creating the ‘Grammarly for Taking Photographs’ in a world where taking pictures has become zeitgeist for expressing oneself; Asanify, a Human Resources Platform for small businesses in emerging countries; Asvin Tech, which provides low-cost, high precision 3D scanning solutions to dentists; CogniSaaS, which aims to reduce churn in the enterprise SaaS industry; and CustomerGlu a low-code platform that helps companies solve the $400 billion ‘lost revenue’ opportunity by creating interactive workflows that drive user stickiness.

Dara.network is creating the world’s finest alumni engagement platform; EasyLokal is a translation solution enables businesses to localise mobile apps and websites easily and quickly using its cloud-based software tools; General Systems provides robotic solutions for the multi-billion-dollar global construction industry and Xook makes robotic food kiosks for office canteens, college, university campuses and apartment complexes.
