Bangalore- and Gurgaon-based startup accelerator GSF has announced the names of the five startup graduating from its fifth batch. The program — crafted for Indian startups offering deep immersion in both Indian and international markets — offers tech startups access to the Indian tech community with hands-on mentorship from five of India’s leading tech founders in addition to access to GSF’s global community of over 400 mentors and startup founders.
“This is our fifth iteration and we have chosen five startups,” Rajesh Sawhney, GSF Accelerator’s founder explains. “This year our focus has been on deep learning, AI, chat-tech, health, and fintech. Each startup in the current batch is led by exceptional founders who have demonstrated a deep commitment to solving a specific domain problem with cutting edge technology.”
GSF has invested a seed amount of $65,000 to $100,000 into each startup. The startups are currently working out of Gurgaon to refine their products and are being guided by mentors. This month, these five startups will head to San Francisco and Tokyo to gain exposure to tech ecosystems outside of India.
