NetApp announced the launch of its fifth cohort of start-ups as part of the NetApp Excellerator, the company’s accelerator program. CloudSEK, an AI-based Digital Risk Management enterprise along with 4 other Data-driven enterprise start-ups were selected so as to be a part of a strategic partnership that develops more effective solutions for their customers.
As part of its previous four cohorts, the NetApp Excellerator program has coached 24 start-ups and they are set to accelerate a new batch of data-driven enterprises.
Apart from CloudSEK, other start-ups that have made it to the fifth cohort are Senseforth.ai, Lightwing, Coralogix and Curl Analytics. The core technology that NetApp is focusing on for this cohort is data.
Hence, all five start-ups, selected to be part of the fifth cohort, work with data. Being a part of the cohort helps CloudSEK not just with the development of its technology but also with the expansion of the organization’s market coverage.
Being a member of NetApp Excellerator’s cohort assures technical and business mentorship, the support to develop products and solutions, permission to use NetApp’s technologies, co-working space if need be along with HR and legal support.
Apart from this unparalleled support, the program helps CloudSEK and the other start-ups connect with potential investors, partners, and customers and sponsor a POC or offer an equity-free grant of $15,000.
