17 Jun, 2014

collageGSF Accelerator, a startup accelerator launched by former Reliance Entertainment president and GSF Superangels founder Rajesh Sawhney, has picked 11 startups for its newly-launched global programme. During the 13-week programme, the startups will go through an intense mentoring and coaching, starting with five weeks in India, followed by four weeks in San Francisco, two in New York, and one each in Toronto and Singapore.

The startups will be mentored by a diverse group of entrepreneurs and industry experts, and will be connected with angel investors, and seed & venture capital firms.

"The selected startups have diverse business models and target markets. However, the common factor between all the startups selected for this programme is their vision to go global," said Sawhney.

Here is a quick look at the startups selected for the programme:

TripMD: A medical travel co-ordination platform that helps patients avail healthcare options outside of their home country at medical facilities globally.
