Hyderabad: Anthill Ventures, an investment and speed-scaling platform for startups, has entered into partnership with the Andhra Pradesh (AP) Government for its market access programme called A-Scale.
This partnership will help the government to support the Smart City Mission of the Government of India by identifying world-class, smart city, solutions across Asia. In turn, startups will also get to pitch to their prospective customers, network with the investor community, and expand their growing business horizons.
Anthill Ventures’ A-Scale programme is an Asian market access programme for startups based in Singapore that focus on health technology, media technology and urban technology. The programme is targeted to benefit 18 startups every year, by giving them the required capital as well as access to use cases on business scaling. Deep technology and deep science startups will be identified from across the globe and will receive targeted mentoring on business model refinement, pricing, go-to-market and sales distribution strategies combined with capital funding from Anthill’s sector-focused funds.
Prasad Vanga, founder, Anthill Ventures said, “Our A-Scale programme, which is a Singapore-based market access programme is strategically designed to help corporates and governments, and through this programme we will be enabling the state of Andhra Pradesh to connect with startups that develop leading-edge, urban tech solutions from across the world.”
Anthill is developing a ‘speed-scaling programme’ for growth-stage startups to enable them to enter large markets like India and Southeast Asian regions.
