Pune-based engineering college, Maharashtra Institute of Technology has onboarded seven startups in the second batch of edtech accelerator programme Edugild.
The chosen startups have been selected from from India, US and Russia and will operate out of the accelerator’s co-working space for a period of 16 weeks in Pune.
Rishi Kapal, CEO of EDUGILD said, “The EDUGILD program is meant to enhance as many opportunities for our startups to engage with key game changers and decision makers within the knowledge management industry.”
An intensive two-day Diagnostic Bootcamp will take place on September 2-September 3. This workshop commences the start of the programme, where the startups will be evaluated on the basis of seven tracks with the Edugild Diagnostic Bootcamp Kit. These tracks are PMF readiness, MVP readiness, future readiness, go-to market readiness, organisation development plan and the maturity levels of UI/UX and tech.
On the basis of 90-minute sessions with the ‘Trackers’ the programme aims to create a customised blueprint for each startup that will focus on the amount of work to be done on the specific areas, making it market-ready.
“The idea is to create a symbiotic ecosystem where the startups help each other grow,” said Rishi. “After the successful completion of the first batch where a few of them have received funding from external sources as well as generating inbound interest as anticipated, EDUGILD looks forward to create an enhanced ecosystem that will further help and build a stronger base for the second batch.”
