Program offers Educational resources that are consistent and top-notch content specifically for startups. From on-demand videos to content kits, HubSpot has an ever-growing library of resources that will help startups strategize and execute. A variety of programming throughout the year, such as on-site masterclasses and virtual workshops are offered, all of which provide tangible tactics that startups can use to grow and scale their companies. HubSpot for Startups teaches startups how to acquire and retain customers, and offer them the software to do it at a price catered to their budgets.


MJ Charmani, Founder of iStart Valley said "This new partnership is a significant step towards leveraging world-class resources to entrepreneurs and startups, a main objective of iStart valley. We are thrilled and looking forward to ensure that all our Startups and Alumni's of our program get the benefit". This program also includes startup-friendly prices for HubSpot’s Growth Suite software if startups wish to use the platform.

iStart Valley, a leading business accelerator for the emerging technology-based startups is excited to announce the winning startups from the fourth batch of its Accelerator Program. Top Five startups were selected for an intense and rigorous immersive experience through six months Accelerator program. During the program, startups evaluated their Product-Market Fit, gained traction on customer development, validated the addressable market and utilized the growth hacking tools. Besides gaining access to the number of free resources, Startup teams received coaching and mentoring by iStart Valley’s Entrepreneurs in residence and several other seasoned serial entrepreneurs.

Top winning startups were chosen from the Final Pitch held at the end of the program based on the criteria such as Traction, Disruptive Power of the Startup, Feasibility, Team Effectiveness, etc.

And the winners are Final Thoughts, a startup working to connect those with a serious illness to loved ones during and after life and My Skills Tech a startup registered in China that offers a solution to create a fully-automated data analysis ecosystem for sports teams and players that will help improve competitive performance. Both the startup teams walked away with several in-kind services and a cash prize of $2500.

Mathew Hansard, CEO and Co-founder of Final Thoughts sharing his experience said “iStart Valley is an incredible resource for anyone with an early stage startup to gain some technical knowledge revolving around business models and commercializing your product. Their weekly session will give you the vocabulary you need to speak with authority to clients, customers, and investors. Very collaborative and lots of insights from the facilitators and the other startups.” Final Thoughts was also featured at the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2018.

My Skills Tech made equally incredible progress through the accelerator program. The team conducted several customer validations working with a sports team in China and has an MVP to kickstart the next phase of the journey.

MJ Charmani, Founder and Chair of iStart Valley said “We are pleased with the progress of these winning startups from the fourth batch. These were strong contenders among the globally diverse startups that were selected to participate. We will continue to work with the startups that have successfully graduated beyond the program to help them accelerate their growth.” 

The fifth batch of the Accelerator 2020 will begin starting mid-September 2019. For any questions, please contact – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
