Padup’s vision is to be a key player in the startup eco-system by actively supporting young entrepreneurs at various stages in their entrepreneurial journey and significantly impact survival rates positively, thus creating a huge impact in the entrepreneurial space.
Young companies are particularly vulnerable in their early/start-up years. A significantly higher percentage of inexperienced entrepreneurs trying their luck at starting companies means lack of exposure, maturity, resources, experience, network, corporate governance knowledge etc.
Technology start-ups tend to be a group of technology professionals with little business experience. Further, the start-up environment can be significantly more hostile in a developing economy, where services remain inadequate, inaccessible or expensive.
Tech Startups across India face many varied challenges to their growth and operations. The “Padup” incubation cum acceleration program is designed to address the following acute challenges for tech Start-ups:
Hands on, deep and domain specific Mentoring
Process and effectual thinking
Validation of an Idea
Qualifying & quantifying the Value Proposition
Product development & management
Sales & marketing
The diverse nature of modern tech start-ups means a higher demand for flexible starting points. Inexperienced entrepreneurs may not always realize it, but they need solid direction in order to succeed. The business world is challenging and, at times, unpredictable, and without a keen mentor to direct their energy, they may end up fizzling out before striking success. Furthermore, inexperienced entrepreneurs may have more difficulty locating initial resources to build momentum.
