Entrepreneurs have often asked us on a recommended list of incubators and accelerators in India. How much do they invest? How much equity do they take? Portfolio focus?
So here is the list (the table you see is just a preview, checkout the embedded Google excel) of accelerators and incubators in India.
The list will be updated frequently (and that’s why we used Google docs/link), so please share edits/additions by emailing to team@NextBigWhat.com.
