Founded in 2015 in collaboration with SD Asia, Grameenphone accelerator has so far supported three batches of startups (including current one)- a total of 16 startups. The program is designed for early-stage companies and provides:

  • An intensive, rapid and immersive training over the four-month
  • BDT 11 lakh in seed funding each for 10% equity in the company,
  • Workspace in GP House, and a weighty set of industry contacts to speed up the life cycle of their businesses

Over the past years, the accelerator has supported startups from a whole variety of industries with specific focus on digital services and platform. Major trends are:

  • Fintech
  • Internet
  • Adtech
  • Mobility and transportation [See our recent mobility market map here]
  • Edtech
  • eCommerce/On-demand service
  • Data analytics
  • Traveltech
  • Healthtech
  • Hardware

Using Future Startup’s internal data and data from few other sources, we have tried to look at the state of GPA startups across the board.

PS: this is a developing story and we plan to add more information about individual companies and also about overall investment strategy of GPA as we go. Also, this story is inspired by CBinsight's similar report for the US market.
