After establishing operations in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, startup accelerator GSF on Wednesday announced that it would launch a fourth location and investment cycle in Chennai effective April 2013. The launch is one of the initiatives to unfold rapidly expanding pan-Indian group GSF.

Rajesh Sawhney, Founder, GSF Superangels, in a release said, “Chennai has grown rapidly in the last couple of years as a leading technology hub in India and with GSF’s presence, Chennai’s integration with the global startup ecosystem will accelerate in the coming years.”

GSF has committed to select four most promising companies in Tamil Nadu for its 9-week acceleration program over the course of the next eight weeks and each company selected will receive initial funding of $28,000 with the support of GSF’s extensive angel network.

GSF has teamed up matrimonial matching company Bharatmatrimony.com and the angel group in South India Chennai Angels for its launch in Chennai.
