We made it! Out of over 1,000 applications, we are thrilled to announce we have been selected as one of the 100 startups into the MassChallenge UK, the most startup-friendly accelerator on the planet. Oorja will have access to mentorship, office space, and a vast network of experienced entrepreneurs, corporate partners, and investors.
“The MassChallenge UK accelerator program will be very instrumental in accelerating our work and supporting us in refining our go-to-market and scale-up strategy. We can´t wait to share, in exchange, our knowledge of the decentralized clean energy sector and experience of working with rural communities,” said Amit Saraogi, Co-Founder and CEO at Oorja.
“Our second cohort in the UK is a truly amazing group of startups with incredible potential with the ability and ideas to change the world,” said Diane Perlman, MassChallenge CMO. “We are grateful to our engaged global community of alumni, mentors, and partners who provide the support and access that early-stage startups need to be successful.”
This year’s MassChallenge UK class was selected from more than 1,000 applicants across a diverse range of industries and geographies, including 69 countries. The accelerator programme will culminate on December 1, 2016, at the MassChallenge UK Awards Ceremony, where entrepreneurs will pitch their startups with the chance to win up to £50,000 in individual awards with no equity taken.
