What do we do?
Catalyzer Startup Accelerator and Commune is ideal for nurturing startup ideas. We provide a support system for startups, so innovative ideas can turn into reality. We work hand in hand with startup founders, mentors, industry experts, coaches and investors to make startups succeed.
How do we work?
We select startup teams & individuals with innovative ideas in technology and non-technology areas such as education, healthcare, environment, design, hospitality etc., in a cohort for 101 days. We call it Startup 101 Accelerator Program. During this program, we provide office space, IT infrastructure and other resources required for your startup to get started. You and your co-team members will have to move to Hyderabad for the program. During the first few weeks, your team goes through a very intensive process of shaping and building your idea, supported by our mentors.
Who are the mentors and what do they do?
Mentors are successful entrepreneurs, academicians, industry influencers and investors. Mentors come from various walks of life with varied knowledge and skills in different aspects of business. The advice and support your startup receives from mentors is worth way more than any investment. Using their experience, expertise and connections, they will help you overcome the challenges your startup encounters. This is an on-going process during the program.
What do we get?
We become partners in your startup. We take a minority share in your company. More details will be provided in Startup 101 Accelerator application form.
What after the program?
Your startup will be introduced to individual and institutional investors (Angel’s/VC’s). Your startup will continue to be part of Catalyzer Startup Commune and you will receive support from our mentors and executives after the program. “Remember, we are share holders and we will do everything in our capacity to make your startup succeed”.

Anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit can apply. Individuals or teams working on ideas in Technology, Non-Technology and Enterprises creating social capital (for profit and non-profit) are encouraged to apply.
