At WF IT & ITES Venture ScaleUp, we are committed to helping high-growth technology ventures scale their businesses through focused coaching and consulting on three growth levers – CUSTOMERS, CASH and CAPACITY.

Our portfolio companies benefit deeply from our relationships with key stakeholders in business ecosystems around the world. This includes corporates, mentors and investors who are keen on working with ventures that are ready to make an impact on global markets.

Many of our alumni companies have experienced exponential growth through our connections with corporate customers. Our growth coaches, mentors and experts’ hands-on approach brings clarity to ‘Traction Metrics’ and orients companies to a growth map that is tangible and achievable.

Ours is a zero-equity and no-fees program.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Over three months, 12-15 selected high-potential FMCG companies will accelerate their growth with the help of our team of high-class entrepreneurs, investors and partners. By leveraging direct access to key contacts in the industry, the selected companies will achieve accelerated growth that would normally take 18+ months.

Product Validation & Pilot: Participating companies will be able to pilot and scale their product placements, sales, distribution and brand visibility through corporate collaborations. In addition, the program also works with stakeholders across the FMCG value chain connecting the companies to service providers such as logistics, manufacturing, product design, packaging and many more. Throughout the program, companies will have ongoing meetings with corporate collaborators and will be able to pilot partnership opportunities.

Muralidhar KadambiJarlie

When we start a business, we are so focused on the product that we often ignore important factors involved in running a startup. I would recommend this program to all entrepreneurs so that they become aware of these critical factors
