“... invaluable as mentors having undertaken the startup journey themselves ... they prevent you from hitting the self destruct button. I particularly remember one line when I was castigating myself for not having executed fast enough and they tell me gently "everything can be done better and faster, what matters is getting it done". A valuable lesson to me about a startup"
“Hey man I love this idea”. If you are an entrepreneur and have a cool idea many a times you will hear the same. But the chances are rare that someone among them will stand by you for the next three years to build that idea into a business. That rare guy is Guhesh. From that day till today he has been with us all thorough. His energy has amazed us, his advices have helped us and his connections have supported us. Always a call away, he will be beside you in your best and worst times".
“ ... a true mentor, a coach and a go-to-person, right from the time of product validation in Dec 2012 .. quick to understand the issues under discussion, give suggestions, debate alternatives, map to his contacts - all these without missing a beat. I have observed that contacts in his network respect him a lot. His macro and micro-level suggestions have always been spot-on for ChipperSage.”
"Without the guidance and advise from Excubator, our business would not be where it is today. The practical, clear thinking and strategic advice from Excubator gives a broad perspective that one tends to lose as an entrepreneur, hard pressed for time. Excubator has helped us hone our long-term vision and made a definite impact on the shape the venture has taken"
“... were a great help while putting through our pitch deck. Their vast experience helped us refine our overall strategy. Their network of contacts helped us connect with other start-ups to generate mutually beneficial relationships .. “
“Ever since our engagement with Excubator, we have been able to focus more sharply on the core of our solution and were able to keep the priorities very clear to meet our goals. Team Excubator passionately goes beyond mentorship and connections; they get their skin in the game to shape up the entire business canvas. As a first-time start-up we hit many roadblocks, even grave ones at times, and that’s where Excubator’s ability to straighten the trajectory and bring the venture back on the track is just invaluable for any start-up team.”
“Excubator to us has been like Master Yoda from Star Wars – a powerhouse of entrepreneurial wisdom. What I find unique about Team Excubator’s engagement is the single-minded focus to make start-up ventures work. They patiently work with the raw ideas and translate them into business platforms. And what I value most in my experience is the Excubator’s commitment to take the journey with you and not just give guidance from outside.”
“For quite some time, we had been on the lookout for mentors who understood what we were trying to do, and it was not as easy a job as it seems. The awesome mentors at Excubator not only understood our vision, but also helped us refine it by offering their experienced views on some problems which we'd have faced otherwise. They also offered their support and guidance by introducing us to potential clients who align with our strategy. But the best part is their strong understanding of new and emerging industries like Gamification, which has been a breath of fresh air for us, and — we hope — for many more startups like us.”
"We reached out to Excubator at a stage when UrbanPiper was just coming out from the stealth mode and needed to go full throttle on scaling up the business. Given our intense focus on time-to-market, Excubator’s high-touch mentoring has been very valuable in every aspect, be it the business strategy, operations planning or even something as small as client pitch preparation. Being in the Excubator’s eco-system has been a great confidence factor for us and with that we are absolutely sure of changing the game"
"While engaging with Excubator, the first thing that one experiences is their contagious enthusiasm and unlimited energy to work with you. They support you for everything that matters for a start-up for doing right things as well as for doing things right way. As we progressed in our journey, Excubator team stood by us and has been always available to discuss, resolved, co-think and guide. Being with Excubator means having a tremendous eco-system within the reach and that is so valuable for a start-up."
