This program is nothing short of incredible and I would even say life-changing. Seriously, you all believed in us in a pivotal moment in our lives and gave us a guide to get to where we want to be. We won't ever take it for granted and in our toughest days, we'll look back to what we heard during these sessions to be inspired again. We're happy that we get to take amazing connections and resources with us. Thank you to everyone who took part in making this program a reality.

Target Accelerators Program India enabled us to build scale capabilities with large amounts of data. The program team goes out of the way to help startups and we got benefits in building networks of investors, and connecting with other large corporations and ecosystem partners. Best of all, Target Accelerators builds credibility with every touchpoint in the ecosystem.
