Data is the new oil. And if you want to get ahead in the new oil rush, who better to help you out than one of the world’s biggest players in data management and storage solutions. We’re bringing you a chance to check out the NetApp Excellerator in person. Its first cohort graduated in December 2017 and the second cohort in June 2018. NetApp is once again looking for smart young companies working in the areas of cloud, the Internet of Things, big data and analytics, machine learning, virtualization, data security, data management, storage, and help them build world-class, market-ready solutions.
YourStory, in partnership with NetApp, is organising meetups across two cities – Delhi and Bengaluru – to interact with the startups, VC’s and tech enthusiasts to discuss the trends in B2B. In the meetup you will also get to know more about the NetApp Excellerator, how and why NetApp is nurturing data-centric startups through the Excellerator.
After two successful cohort, applications are now open for the third cohort of the NetApp Excellerator. As part of the four-month programme, the startups will get access to experts—both internal and external, collaboration and productivity tools, a fantastic co-working space and more. NetApp awards an equity-free grant of $15,000 to every company that makes it to the final cohort, which can be used by the startups to grow their business. Startups that make it to the cohort also get a chance to visit NetApp customers, to pitch their products and services. And there are investor days, where NetApp brings in investors to talk to the startups.
If you are a startup or entrepreneur working on a solution relating to any of the following areas -- cloud, IoT, Big Data and Analytics, Machine Learning, virtualisation, data security, data management, storage, and other related subjects -- the NetApp Excellerator could be the right fit for you.
