The goal of the program is to help support a dynamic ecosystem for innovative Indian startups through the sharing of American best business practices in entrepreneurship and incubation.
To date, 20 startups have completed the intensive, 10-week pre-incubation program and nine have been selected for long-term incubation. The third cohort of the pre-incubation program began at the end of January.
The first is a program that will provide training, mentor, and networking opportunities specifically for female entrepreneurs throughout India.
This women-focused program is designed to support and empower women with entrepreneurial interests who are currently studying at Indian universities to overcome barriers and become future leaders in India's startup sector.
The grant will support the expansion of Nexus' offerings to include startups in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
"The response to the Nexus program has been overwhelmingly positive and we have already seen some great results from our first two graduated cohorts of startups," said the director of Nexus Erik Azulay. "The Nexus team is excited about engaging with the innovation ecosystems in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka and working to set up the same kind of active network we are building here in Delhi."
