Gemini New Media Ventures launches integrated programme for start-ups

Gemini New Media Ventures (GNMV) has announced the launch of its module-based start-up certification programme for entrepreneurs in India. The programme will act as a guide, mentor and sounding board for entrepreneurs as they build the foundations of their businesses.

The modules are spanned over a period of three months and six months, basis the requirement and preference of the start-up. The programme is a combination of infrastructure and mentorship support. The centre is situated in Chembur, Mumbai.

Each start-up enrolled for the programme will be conditioned by a mentor and pathfinders to finally present before a VC Bench. The mentors are the hands on industry experts who are closely associated with the start-ups as they move through the module. The pathfinders are veterans from various fields who would come in an advisory role. The VC Bench would compromise of selected VCs who would be looking at the start-ups from an investment point of view. On successful completion of the module, each start-up receives a certification from GNMV.

Commenting on the programme, Deep Malhotra, Founder & Managing Partner, GNMV said, “The GNMV start-up programme marks our foray into an area which is the biggest need of any start-up in India today. The intent is to provide a holistic environment to start-ups based on learning, infrastructure support and mentorship. We are going to be extremely stringent in our selection process to ensure that we spend our efforts towards building only serious businesses. The GNMV team is busy getting more mentors, pathfinders and VCs on board and we should be announcing their names soon.”

GNMV has now started accepting applications for the programme and the last date of application is on or before November 15, 2013.
