Microsoft India on Tuesday announced the final list of select technology start-ups which will constitute the 2013 winter batch of Microsoft Ventures Accelerator in Bangalore.

 

Eight companies, namely AdSparx, ShieldSquare, Chance, Frrole, Native5, SignEasy, TommyJams and Whale Logix were selected from 1000+ applications received over two months and after several rigorous rounds of screening by a panel of judges comprising senior leaders from Microsoft and the industry, a release issued by Microsoft said.

 

Scibler, the ninth company, is from the 2013 Summer batch, staying on to achieve more aggressive milestones. Apart from these nine, four more companies, HasGeek, Nanobi, Tookitaki and 1000Lookz will also be closely associated with the Accelerator during this period.

 

Ravi Narayan, who recently joined the Microsoft Ventures in India leadership team, said, “I am very excited about leading this team. This is the first batch to join the Accelerator after we aligned all startup related activities under a single umbrella called Microsoft Ventures, to be able to engage with entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey from ideation to maturity.”

 

Congratulating the new batch, Nasscom President Som Mittal, said, “This is an amazing batch of start-ups, as brilliant as they are varied. And I am extremely proud that some of them were part of the applications we shortlisted from the 4000 we had received for the Nasscom 10000 startups program. We introduced 332 shortlisted companies to some of the country’s leading accelerators, angel networks and VCs and it is great to see few of them at the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator. We thank Microsoft for their tremendous support as a strategic partner and sponsor of our program and look forward to more collaboration to bolster India’s technology innovation landscape.”

 

The winter batch, hosted in the 8,300 sq ft state-of-the-art Accelerator facility in Microsoft’s Lavelle Road office, is currently undergoing a four month deep immersion program which will end with Demo Day in late November.
