Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) and CLAP (Cisco LaunchPad Accelerator Program) are collaborating to host the pioneering Technopreneurship Series for innovators and startups in the state of Kerala. The initiative starting from November 15th to 19th, 2021 will provide a platform for innovation and collaboration so as to enable nascent companies to solve new-age challenges. The virtual program comprises a series of workshops on business and technology tracks which will be pivotal in giving corporate and institutional support to young innovators. “The online series comes to Kerala when the state is busy adding vibrancy to its startup ecosystem by helping its emerging entrepreneurs garner more visibility for their ideas and offer them solutions”, senior KSUM officials said.
The nation-wide initiative, powered by Cisco LaunchPad is expected to see a confluence of young innovators, early-stage startups, government representatives, corporate leaders, industry mentors, investors and other esteemed guests who will exchange thoughts, insights, frameworks and innovative ways to leverage technologies. It’s worthy to note that startups from the state like Tranzmeo has been a part of its B2B corporate accelerator program. Also, Cisco LaunchPad has had the privilege of working with another startup SatSure that went onto the field together with Cisco to offer remote crop monitoring services in the state. And with this Technopreneurship Series, more opportunities and mutual growth territories will be easier to be tapped while working with several high-potential startups from the region.
Cisco LaunchPad, which is the accelerator wing of the networking and software giant Cisco, has been at the forefront of orchestrating a win-win proposition for startups and the enterprise by building the bridge to possible harnessing technology. As an advocate of corporate-startup collaboration, the 2016-incepted program has gained huge success in propelling B2B deep-tech startups from India and other geographic locations. And with this collaboration with KSUM, the initiative will unlock more territories of growth for co-founders of early stage startups, aspiring entrepreneurs and student innovators as they will get exposure to industry mentors, access to various initiatives undertaken by the government, Cisco and startup enablers, investor connect opportunities, monetary incentives and e-certificates on successful completion of sessions, among others.
Post two days of the workshop, startups get the opportunity to pitch in front of an august gathering of corporate leaders and industry experts, and shortlisted startups and innovators stand a chance to get inducted to Cisco’s startup ecosystem for accelerated growth.
