Accelerate @ IMACX

IMACX Accelerator is a Zero Fee, Zero Equity, Thematic, Cohort based, 100-day Accelerator program for early stage startups hosted out of IMACX Studios in Electronics City, Bangalore. Each Cohort has a specific theme related to our wider research focus around emerging technologies & social issues.

At IMACX, we nurture ventures / solutions that are at prototype / pre-launch stage. It is for creators in the early stages of product development, with either a beta or working prototype of their product. We cover various aspects of building your offering - by the people who have experience building ventures, platforms, products and tools.

The IMACX team will work with you on purpose, problem, product development, platform strategy, data science, branding, revenue, fundraising and hiring. Leading players in the ecosystem - platform vendors, VCs, media companies, startups & enterprises - will join us as mentors to accelerate the development of your creation / company.

We accept no more than ten companies per cohort in order to maximize the amount of attention we provide to the founders. If you are selected for participation, you will receive investment from IMACX TIRAC Fund as part of the program, as well as a host of relevant programming and other benefits, including:

  • Hands-on guidance from the IMACX team in areas such as product, platform integration, and fundraising
  • Targeted sessions with experts around various aspects of building your company including user acquisition, PR, and customer research
  • Talks with leaders from major technology companies relevant to your Cohort's theme
  • Peer Learning & Networking Opportunities
  • Mentorship from Angels / VCs actively investing in your category
  • Promotional credits from vendors such as AWS, Digital Ocean, Azure, etc.

We would like to understand details about - your venture's purpose, the market problem that you are planning to solve, the solution that is being planned for development, the team members working on the solution, the market opportunity for the solution and finally, your expectations from IIIT-B.
