Indian early stage VC fund advantEdge Partners today said it has on-boarded startups Ango Health and Unanth to its six-month Incubator program.

Ango Health is a personalized pregnancy management platform that improves the quality of care received by expecting mothers.

Neeraj Saini, Co-Founder, Ango Health said, “The incubator program brings in a lot of structure to the venture and is helping set us up for the next stage of our journey. Ridhish has been available 24x7 to help out with whatever requirements we have, and has arranged mentoring sessions for the team by the best experts from the industry. The fact that we are allowed to take risks in a controlled environment makes us more competitive. Additionally, all administrative and legal work is taken care of by the advantEdge team, allowing us to concentrate on the technology and meeting customers needs, which itself is a major value to an early stage startup like ours.”

Unanth is a leading vernacular online IT learning marketplace targeted at engineering students and software professionals, allowing them to up skill themselves in their native language.

Kishore Reddy, Co-Founder of Unanth said, “I can confidently say that having access to world-class office infrastructure in this well-located incubator has made a world of difference to our team’s productivity and focus. Also, all non-core activities like legal opinion, company formation, media and PR are handled by the incubator and that frees us to focus on what really matters – the product and our market.”

The advantEdge incubation program provides 360-degree support to accelerate startups through their initial lifecycle. On acceptance into the program, startups receive not only capital, but access to advantEdge’s best in class infrastructure, on-call support services and free credits from their world leading partner network, including Amazon, Razorpay and IBM, among others. Startups also have ready access to the fund’s experienced in-house team, world-class mentor network, investor community and industry connections.

“A big highlight of the program is the regular advice we get from Kunal on strategic direction and the advantEdge team on everything from setting and measuring KPIs to scheduling 1:1 mentoring sessions with experts and fellow entrepreneurs,” Kishore added.

“Ango Health and Unanth both demonstrated a fantastic value proposition and we are glad to have them join our program. Both of them are looking to create a meaningful and long-lasting impact in their respective areas and we are committed to help them accelerate their growth.” said Kunal Khattar, General Partner at advantEdge Partners, “It’s not just about providing them with state-of-the-art infrastructure, mentoring and support services, but partnering with them in the true sense by being by their side at every step to help them build the correct product market fit and create the organizational foundation to scale the business.”

advantEdge’s Incubator program differentiates itself by focusing on only a select few startups at a time and following a rolling admissions cycle throughout the year.

“The non-batch approach, combined with selection of only a handful of teams at one time, allows us to cater to the individual needs of each startup and provide customized support services tailored for them. This process is designed exclusively to help startups accelerate through their initial stages and raise capital to scale by the end of the program.” Ridhish Talwar, Head of advantEdge Incubator program said.

Apart from the Incubator program, which is based in Delhi NCR, advantEdge also runs a highly successful early stage tech fund and has made 18 investments so far in pioneering companies like Shuttl, TrulyMadly, Rapido, Smartivity, IndiaLends, ScoopWoop and IIMJobs etc.
