This was a great platform for both KloudData and Spinta to share their experience in the start-up arena and how an accelerator like Spinta works against all odds to help convert ideas into reality. The main objective of the launch of the Pune chapter was to spread the awareness of the existence of the entrepreneurial ecosystem to raise a startup, especially for aspiring startups from Pune.

The evening began with a keynote address from Spinta and KloudData CEO Prashant Parekh who focused on the importance of the word ‘innovation’. Spinta Accelerator Program acts like a force multiplier, providing 360 degree assistance to startups to pilot-test their Minimum Viable Product with real-world customers.

Prashant Parekh, a seasoned entrepreneur based in Silicon Valley, presented how Spinta’s unique Katalyst™ process, helps plug in the gaps in the entrepreneurial system. He walked the audience through the 3 steps of Spinta’s Katalyst™ process viz Start: evaluates and nurtures the initial spark, Sprint: refines, validates and finalizes a ‘Minimal Viable Product’, and Scale: wins customers, establishes credibility and creates market value. He further explained, “We are here to offer comprehensive support to deserving start-ups to help build successful businesses out of their nascent yet bright business ideas. Each startup has unique needs and hence requires one-on-one mentorship as well as a different mentor at different phases of their life cycle. The biggest value proposition that we bring to the table is to provide creation of Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Accelerated creation of MVP is critical for minimizing risks for any startup and contributes tremendously towards the path to success.”

The keynote address was followed by a showcase of KloudData products and solutions hosted by Ankur Das, SVP, and Strategic Market Development. Ankur spoke elaborately on KloudData’s capabilities in the field of analytics, enterprise and mobility, and how those can be leveraged within the realm of Spinta.

The highlight of the evening was the concluding session on ‘What is your Dhoni moment?’ where aspiring entrepreneurs opened up and interacted on the turning point of their life in the world of startups and business.

Miten Mehta, Co-Founder of Spinta Global Accelerator, who hosted the session said, “The effect we have on others is the most valuable currency there is – and will ever be. And so entrepreneurs need to be passionate about their start-up beyond technology or business model or value creation, to a level higher where making a positive difference becomes the very essence and purpose of life and the start-up as the platform to achieve it. As Spinta Global Mentor Board member we always strive to instill this spirit in our entrepreneurs and start-ups.”
