PASSION.

PATIENCE.

PERSISTANCE.

The ingredients to be a successful entrepreneur.

But the grand idea will remain a dream if it isn’t put into action, and perfected by the experts, pushed to perfection by seasoned professionals. And that’s the element that Turbostart brings to the equation.

We are more than just catalysts.
We are not the not-so-secret.

Ingredients

to Success.

A QUICK INTRODUCTION…

Turbostart identifies the most innovative startups across India, provides seed funding and guides them to build a successful business and maximize the potential of what they have created. At Turbostart, our goal is to get the business founders through all the fundamentals and help them move towards building something innovative and viable. We are building a diverse and empowering startup ecosystem for the future. Hope to build a vibrant and empowering startup ecosystem.

We might be just a few years old, but since 2019, we have already curated over 2000+ applications, funded 17 companies and worked with 25+ startups and 70+ founders. Our Cohort 1 companies have achieved 4x value appreciation. Every cohort, over 1000+ companies apply to participate and we typically have a 1%-2% acceptance rate.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?

Twice a year, we invest seed money of up to 5 crores in the most promising startups who approach us. Our aim is to run two cohorts per year and invite an average of 10-15 early-stage startups for funding. The Turbostart cohort is sector agnostic and pan-India.

It lasts for almost three months, during which, each application that we receive is reviewed in two phases.

The first phase is a quick preliminary qualification. Whoever makes the cut goes through an intense review and selection in the second phase. But what if there’s a diamond in the rough? That’s why we invite the most innovative startups to meet us, and we make funding decisions afterwards.

Our vision & philosophy

“A transformative force and necessary value-addition for entrepreneurs with disruptive ideas. We’re ready to change the world together!”

Having been there, done that or seen the way these businesses work, we firmly believe that business founders are best focused on working on the idea they come up with. They need to spend most of their time building great products, and leave the rest to others accomplished in these areas. and need to hand over the supporting tasks to the experts established in each of these fields. That’s when Turbostart takes a step forward – Our goal is to create an ecosystem to innovate and enable the founders with various resources and support, where they can focus exclusively on building a product, solving a problem, talking to customers and scaling up.

than Money !

Most venture investors provide a combination of capital and strategic help.

At Turbostart, we look at the larger scheme of things.

Providing capital is only a part of a grander story on how we want to help the community. It is just a small component of the all-round support that we offer to the founders. Most importantly, we work with the business founders and entrepreneurs on expanding their idea into a viable product and quickly launching it- all while taking care of any other aspects of their businesses seamlessly, so that they can rest easy.

Turbostart doesn’t believe in interference but more strategic assistance and guidance.Our engagement with business founders is unique and personalized based on the magnitude of help needed for each startup. Once we have identified an innovative startup for the Cohort, we step into a few basic formalities like the Cohort announcement, induction, signing of the term sheet etc. Once that’s out of the way, we delve deeper into the real deal. We work very closely with the founders and identify the gaps and challenges in the startup and get a bird’s eye view of the whole nine yards of the business.

Musings

over Coffee…

With a cup of freshly brewed coffee, combined with our experiential wisdom, we get down to brass tacks with the business founders by helping them prioritize some gaps that we might identify.

These challenges are dealt with first, because we believe that they are important and in all probability preventing the startup from taking off. So we offer immediate fixes and get the ball rolling. Then, diving deep, Turbostart helps founders address these challenges strategically, clear the huddle and help them answer all the fundamental questions and guide them to scale.
