PedalStart Unveils PedalCircle – A Pioneering Innovation Hub for Accelerating Early-Stage Start-ups

PedalStart, a renowned start-up accelerator and community-builder, has announced the launch of its latest flagship initiative, ‘PedalCircle.’ This groundbreaking program aims to accelerate the journeys of early-stage start-ups from Proof-of-Concept (POC) to their maiden round of fundraising. PedalCircle is India’s first-of-its-kind cohort-based offline program, set to commence in Bengaluru – India’s startup capital – from March to June 2024.

The three-month intensive program will empower 25 selected start-ups through unparalleled access to knowledge, mentorship, market access, infrastructure, growth capital, and more. The selected start-ups will benefit from an expert support team, shared resources across functions like marketing, tech, legal, and recruitment, and 1-to-1 mentorship sessions with ex-founders and investors. At the conclusion of the program, five of the cohort start-ups will have the opportunity to receive pre-seed/seed investments of up to $250,000 from the PedalStart network.

Manas Pal, Co-Founder of PedalStart, expressed his enthusiasm for the program, stating, “After tremendous success with our previous online cohorts like Zero-to-One and One-to-N, we are thrilled to introduce PedalCircle as a one-stop solution for bridging critical gaps faced by today’s start-ups. Through PedalCircle, we aim to accelerate the progress of selected start-ups and provide them with a launchpad for success.”

Aditya Darolia, Co-Founder of PedalStart, added, “In today’s startup ecosystem, success in the initial phase hinges on finding the perfect Product-Market Fit. With PedalCircle, we hope to foster an enabling ecosystem for passionate startup founders, supercharging their entrepreneurial journeys.”

Even after the completion of the PedalCircle cohort, start-ups will continue to have access to PedalStart’s wider founder community platform, consisting of over 1600 entrepreneurs. This lifelong community can be leveraged for potential partnerships, knowledge-sharing opportunities, and future growth needs.

The application registration for PedalCircle is currently ongoing. From a large pool of applicants, only 25 promising early-stage start-ups will be selected for the PedalCircle cohort through a founder-friendly yet thorough 5-step screening process.
