Indian Startup Accelerator Reserves Spot for One Canadian Startup

GSF Global Accelerator is a 13-week program to foster innovation in the fast growing digital economy of India.

Its goal is to provide select startups with unparalleled access to venture and business networks, personalized mentoring, and initial capital.

Startup folks will likely recoginzie the GSF brand—they are the accelerator behind Little Eye Labs which was acquired by Facebook earlier this year.

GSF is launching a cross-border program with increased seed funding and global exposure for its third cohort starting May this year.

The GSF Global Accelerator is partnering with AngelList to manage the application and selection process for its next batch. GSF’s next batch will have eight startups from India with the remaining four from across South East Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, and Canada.

GSF founder Rajesh Sawhney was in Toronto last week for the launch of the CTA@India program and has confirmed that one of the four international spots in the next intake is reserved for a Canadian startup.

The next batch starting on May 5 will have six stopovers, with a demo day included in each, starting with four weeks in India (Delhi/Bangalore), followed by one week at Singapore’s The Hub, four weeks in Silicon Valley, one week in Waterloo/Toronto and two weeks on the East Coast (NYC and Boston).

Apply before April 10 for that reserved Canadian spot.
