About Us

  • We at Startify, operate as startup enablers. We provide both incubation and acceleration support services.
  • Our incubation service is branded as "Rocket Launcher" program. We handhold early stage startups, mentor them, provide workspace, assist in prototyping, develop marketing plans and raise capital from our network of investors.
  • Our acceleration service caters to the needs of early revenue startups planning to scale up their business. We are sector agnostic and focus on tech-driven startups.
  • Our Investor Network Includes: VCs, HNIs, Family Offices, Strategic Investors, Corporates, Angel & Seed Investors who invest between USD 50,000 to 15,00,000 in Seed to Series A rounds. Our founders have been multiple entrepreneurs themselves; and so understand the fundraising cycle well.

Startify's "Rocket Launcher" Program :

The entrepreneur journey that starts from the “best idea ever” and goes through a roller coaster of ups and downs is what we strive to be part of.

  • 01 Purpose and Goal

    ✔ The “Rocket Launcher” program is one of a kind designed to handhold startups through their early years and focus on four key thrust areas of building a strong story, market access (GTM) and product & digital development while we strive towards raising capital and growth.

    ✔ Our goal is to make the startup with as little burn as possible. We do not believe in high burn startups at the early stage. We believe that PRODUCT, PROCESS and PEOPLE make an enterprise and we work towards making the enterprise scalable and refundable.

    ✔ The startup gets Startify as a partner, an approach that is very different from that of Accelerators and Incubation programs.

  • While we encourage all early Startups to apply for the “Rocket Launcher” program, it works best for the startups matching the following criterion:

    1.The startup moved beyond just a concept note and have at least reached a prototype stage.
    2.The startup has funds to survive for at least one year.
    3.Has a strong and dedicated founding team.

    The “Rocket Launcher” program runs for one year.

  • Raising capital remains the primary focus of this program, we believe there are 4 key thrust areas which make an enterprise scalable and thus refundable.

    1.Strategy or the Story: Monthly review meetings on business direction, action plan, milestones, roadblocks/challenges etc.

    2.Product: Differentiation, Focus, Product roadmap.

    3.People: Find mentors, advisors, co founders & employees.

    4.Go-To-Market: We use our network of CXOs, Business Owners & Decision makers to generate sales/business and do strategic tie-ups for rapid growth.
    You can use the network to find customers.
    You can also use our network for digital marketing activities such as emailers, social media posts & PR.

    Since raising capital is a continuous activity, we bring is our capability to engage parallelly for subsequent rounds so on-going capital raising for your startup becomes a lot easier and faster.
