A look at the TLabs Fall 2013 batch of 9 Startups

TLabs, an incubator run by Times Internet Ltd (TIL), has disclosed names of 9 startups that it has picked for its Fall 2013 Batch, which started early last month. The startups comes from sectors like retail, health, media, and advertising, among others.

According to the incubator, some of them have already started signing up initial (paying) customers. The incubator had picked a combined total of 7 startups in its first two batches (of which one had shut shop), and increased this number to 7 in the 3rd batch alone. With this batch, TLabs takes its portfolio count to 23.

The unique thing about the current batch is that it also includes students currently studying in colleges. TLabs typically invests around Rs 10 lakh for a 10% stake in an incubatee company.

Satyan Gajwani, CEO, Times Internet , said,” There are lots of entrepreneurs starting up in India now and I feel the idea of start-ups being a ‘mentality’ rather than a concept. The challenge that runs ahead of every entrepreneur is to prove the proposition by convincing people. TLabs provides the edge over other start-ups right from the beginning as our goal is to support entrepreneurs as well as the entire innovative ecosystem to unlock the maximum value”.
