• We are your Guiding Light.

    We help Enterprise SaaS companies navigate global waters.

  • What We Do

    We operate a structured, custom-designed, super-intense accelerator program aimed at

    helping early-stage enterprise SaaS startup founders to scale their ventures, globally

     

    MENTORSHIP

    Holistic

    Founders get mentored by the core team - accomplished entrepreneurs - with focus on product-market fit, operating-at-scale, sales & marketing, go to market. Founders can also access hand-picked external mentors on-demand.

    KNOWLEDGE

    Domain & functional

    Founders get access to the repository of knowledge garnered by the core team over years of working with large, global enterprise customers across different industry verticals. Founders get deep insights on technology & industry trends and what customers want. This is priceless.

    CUSTOMERS

    Connects & Demo Days

    We focus most on customer access and revenue traction for our startups - product validation or market fit (development survey) or to pitch for business. Connections to decision makers in large enterprises, through our reference, can help reduce the sales cycle. Other than regular introductions specific to each startup, we also organize a customer demo day at the end of the program.

    INVESTORS

    Soft intros to investors

    We spare no expense to make sure our cohort startups are connected on a regular basis to the most relevant B2B tech investors - angels & and family offices, seed funds, early-stage VCs. Our network of investors is spread across Asia, Middle East and USA. We have done away with investor demo days and connect startups to investors on a case to case basis.
