IIM-Ahmedabad’s start-up incubation centre Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE), in partnership with Village Capital will kick off the first series of accelerator workshops this month in Goa. With support from The Rockefeller Foundation, The Last Mile Access Accelerator is a premier programme that aims to help scale innovative enterprises that are increasing access to under-served populations. The CIIE-Village Capital Accelerator is a partnership between two organisations with a good track record of identifying, supporting, and funding early-stage companies. The programme emphasises on peer mentoring and peer selection of the best ventures within the cohort. Participating entrepreneurs will assess one another with two top-ranked start-ups receiving Rs. 30 lakh each in investment funding. It starts on May 21, 2014, with two additional workshops at IIM Ahmedabad.
