Startup accelerator, TLabs has launched 5th batch of the accelerator program consisting of seven startups with immense potential across various sectors ranging from fashion to gaming to ad tech to real estate.
The startups will be based out of TLabs Noida office for the next 4 months. This batch of the accelerator has a healthy mix of B2B and B2C startups that are providing innovative solutions to some evident problems in their respective industries.
With this batch, TLabs, takes its portfolio count to 30 startups. TLabs truly believes in working closely with the startup founders in order to help them build businesses from the initial MVP (Minimum Viable Product). Abhishek Gupta, head TLabs added that “Contrary to popular belief that there are enough players in the ecosystem to help early stage startups, we think the system needs more accelerators with the right mindset and people. The founders and employees of accelerators should be ready to roll up their sleeves and work with the startups hands on. We have maintained that approach and will continue doing so in the future. We believe in building businesses and not business plans”
