Microsoft on Thursday announced the list of 13 selected technology start-ups, which will constitute the second batch of the Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure program in India. The selected 13 start-ups are 360 Living, Adepto, DeckApp, Frintit, Harness, 17 Networks, Label Guild, Profoundis, Qubole, SupportBee, TableGrabber, Tuebora and Visarity.

Announcing the second batch, Mukund Mohan, CEO-in-residence, Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure, said, “Apart from India and the US, we even received applications from countries like Spain and Australia. This clearly signals the strengthening of a global start-up culture, and I feel honored to be driving a marquee initiative in India which is contributing towards strengthening this ecosystem. This is our summer batch; the winter batch will open up for application on May 1, 2013.”

Congratulating the start-ups, Ravi Gururaj, Vice-President, Products, Citrix, said, “Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure has emerged as a much sought-after platform for all start-ups who want to kick start, nurture, reinvigorate and scale up their ventures. I am confident of the success of the new batch—they are sure to match world class standards and will be much sought after by investors.”

“We will provide them access to our 100+ mentor network, from within and outside India, who are fully committed to ensure their success. We will connect them to our vast network of early adopters so that they can define their product/market fit before a formal launch to market. And we will drive these four months as an intense boot camp where we will track the weekly progress of each start-up and share reports with their mentors,” said Mohan describing the four month incubation period for the second batch.

Starting March 1, 2013, the 13 start-ups will be hosted in the state-of-the-art Accelerator facility in Bangalore, and undergo a four-month deep immersion program under the guidance of elite mentors from the industry and Microsoft.
