Mumbai-based marketing technology and customer experience company, Netcore Cloud, has joined forces with the Headstart Network Foundation and the AIC-Nalanda Institute of Technology Foundation to introduce the ‘D2C Blaze’ startup accelerator program.

India, boasting the third-largest startup ecosystem globally, witnesses a continuous surge of innovative ventures each year. 

In acknowledgment of this, Netcore Cloud has initiated the ‘D2C Blaze’ program, exclusively designed for early-stage Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) Startups

This program serves as a launching pad for these startups, providing them with an avenue to thrive and prosper in the competitive business landscape.

Scheduled to run from October to December 2023, the ‘D2C Blaze’ program aims to nurture startups exhibiting significant growth potential. It offers comprehensive support in scaling effectively and establishing a robust brand identity.

Kalpit Jain, Group CEO of Netcore Cloud, shared his perspective, stating, “Indian startups have been increasingly leaving their mark on the global stage, achieving new milestones year after year. 

Nevertheless, early-stage startups often grapple with challenges like securing funding, finding the right product-market fit, navigating intense competition, acquiring top talent, and understanding complex regulations, among others.
