Wired Hub, Rajasthan’s first co-working club, recently concluded its Jodhpur Accelerator Program with a Demo Day in IIT Jodhpur. 9 startups who participated in the program, went through rigorous training program including workshops, industry connects and networking meet-ups.

The demo day was judged by one of Rajasthan’s most influential investors, Mahavir Pratap Sharma, along with Paresh Gupta from Neos Angels and Dilnawaz Khan from Startup Oasis.

The 10-days accelerator program was structured to provide startups a walkthrough starting from business modeling, to product design, social media marketing techniques, hiring the right talent and finally creating a pitch deck that can impress the investors. The program was supported by Qriyo, which itself is one of the successful startups to have come out of Jodhpur (funded by Idein Ventures).

The startups that participated in the program included Jodhpur Design Company, VegforSure, Potlidas, Fitness Studio, Surprise Planners, MyshopIQ, MyFoodGuy, out of which 3 startups were shortlisted to pitch on the Demo Day -

1.     VegForSure - Providing customer fresh fruits and vegetables at their doorstep in 3 hrs. Customers can order via WhatsApp, live chatting on the website, through online ordering via website, or via direct calling.

2.     MyShopIQ - An innovative hyper local grocery marketplace which is providing an Ecosystem for New age commerce to Global businesses

3.     MyFoodGuy - MyFoodGuy basically works as a Hyper Local market for Customer where Restaurants, Sweets and Namkeen Shops are listed online and orders are accepted via the website. 

The Demo Day was also in partnership with The Tech Portal’s flagship event Pitch Off, and the selected startup, MyShopIQ got a direct entry to their main event, which is slated to happen in February 2017.

While startup ecosystem in Jodhpur is yet to mature, such accelerator programs and upcoming co-working spaces add a lot of value to the community and create a positive entrepreneurial ecosystem.
