Wadhwani program made me an entrepreneur from manufacturer

If Wadhwani Foundation was not there, we would not have `Accelerated'. It would have taken us 3-years instead of 3-months to make the changes

I learnt how to pitch to a VC. Earlier pitches used to look like emotional appeal for money

Ravi BulusuFounder, CEO, Enmovil

Wadhwani Advantage is an excellent program. The biggest positive is the connect with experts. I will highly recommend this program to fellow entrepreneurs.

We at Vaave found it tough to achieve 5% month-on-month growth. Now we will touch 6.5% by year end. Thank you Wadhwani Advantage Program!

We always had a growth plan but never put it in such a structured way. Biggest impact was how much introspection we did

Deepak PintoFounder, CEO, Zenith Precision, Bengaluru

After running the business for four years, we just focused on a single process and solution. But, time spent on one-on-one sessions and the traction models that Wadhwani Foundation asked us to try out gave us a different perspective. As a result, through ‘Staytions’ we expect to revolutionize what last mile logistics can do.

Wadhwani Foundation's Advantage accelerator program has helped PROSOC to reach out to many new marketing and business development leads. The support for promoting DESKIT helped us to close the orders from few major CSR and Government funding partners. At the start of the program, DESKIT was reaching out 1,000 students on an average per month. After three months of the program, due to deep networking support, the average has tripled to 3,000 per month, and a prospective pipeline of around 2 lakh DESKIT orders. All due to the fantastic networking support provided by Wadhwani Foundation.
