SnapRyde a Startup Team from the 2016 Batch of iStart Valley Accelerator Program launched its app on 21st March. Within 4 days of its launch SnapRyde has garnered 300+ registered users using the service. We wish them a big success in days to come and a smooth Ryde ahead.

SnapRyde provides a unique platform where driver gets privilege to bid their price and riders will be matched with the cheapest bid available. People sharing the ride pitch in some amount for drivers to cover the gas expenses, cutting down the expenses on commute for both Riders and Driver. We highly value the green environment and our vision is to reduce the carbon footprints for a cleaner, healthier environment.

The personal attention, guidance and mentoring from them is helping us in understanding the startup ecosystem and coming up with the best strategy to develop a world-class enterprise level product. We are fortunate to collaborate with them in our journey towards success and look forward to keeping working with them in near future”. Mayank put together a team with Shraddha Jain as the Co-Founder and CTO and Samvaran Kashyap Rallabandi as the Co-Founder and CTO working deligently to transform the idea into a successful Startup.

For Immediate Release

June 9, 2016: iStart Valley is excited to announce the 2016 batch of the Accelerator Program. The 2016 Startup teams were picked from leading national hackathons and Startup Weekend contests. After reviewing the top ideas in these contests, iStart Valley has offered seven startups an entry into the 2016 Accelerator program. During the nine month long Accelerator program, the selected startup teams will go through a rigorous idea validation phase and spend significant amount of their time in customer validation.

During the first six months of the iStart Valley’s Accelerator program, Startup teams will work on ideas, build market-ready products or prototypes with a well-defined marketing strategy. They will also receive coaching and mentoring by several serial entrepreneurs from the same domain areas as of the Ideas. The last three months of the Accelerator program will aim at Startups presenting to iStart Valley’s growing Venture Capitalist and Super Angels network for seed round or “A” series funding. The key differentiator of the program is the pairing of startups with Venture Capitalists who share common interests and are the right fit based on their portfolio. This approach helps reduce the time taken for the startups to get funded.

The brightest ideas of the 2016 accelerator program, starting in June 2016, come from Dallas, Texas and Jacksonville, Florida regions. And they are as follows.
