    Startup Tunnel launches CivicTech Incubation Program

    This winter, Startup Tunnel (STun) is launching India’s very first CivicTech Incubation Program. STun is looking for ambitious entrepreneurs with a passion to solve the real and tough challenges burdening Indian cities today. This program isn’t looking for the ‘just-another’ or copy-cat ideas. It is looking to discover the next moonshot, that will drastically improve the lives of millions.

    Incubatees will have access to STun’s wide network of mentors, advisors and investors. They will also have access to large investor events, like GSF, social innovation conclaves like Design Public and startup pitching events like Pecha Kucha Nights and Product Meet. Incubatees will have the chance to pitch to government in the first week of November, during the Citizen Participation in Urban Innovation event, and once again in December to a group of investors at Slingshots.

    STun is a Delhi based early-stage incubator. After launching in January 2015, the Startup Tunnel has incubated five early stage start-ups, Mera Garden, JobSpire, TrueLancer, Amicus and Butterfly Innovations. Working in the spaces of e-commerce, recruitment and education, some of them are now running revenue positive ventures, while others have successfully secured seed funding. STun is now partnering with CivicLabs, a division of CKS Consulting, bringing innovation techniques to the public sector and governments towards the creation of new digital public services, to put together a one of a kind CivicTech Incubation Program. Two of the greatest startup heros of our time, Peter Thiel and Elon Musk, have worked closely with government, to build Palantir and Space X respectively. The CivicTech incubator program, doesn’t believe otherwise, and intends to be space to make it happen.

    You could apply to STun’s incubation program here or write to stun@vihara.asia for more information. You could also follow them on Facebook and Twitter or have a look at their website.

    I read up on Indian startup scene daily and wished for one place I could read all the best startup news/stories from reputed blogs/websites.

    Didn’t find any such place and that prompted me to create an android app for this purpose — a mobile app to read the best of Indian start-up content on your mobile at one place without having to go to different sites or open different apps

    Since I also readup on TechCrunch, I also added the capability to read content from TechCrunch feed for keeping you up to date with International Start-up news
