Data storage and management company NetApp on Thursday announced the graduation of its second cohort of six start-ups as part of the NetApp Excellerator programme.
The six start-ups — SigTuple, Nanobi, ArchSaber, Anlyz, Dataken and BlobCity — demonstrated their achievements and progress to venture capitalists, NetApp executives and prominent industry leaders.
The programme is designed to help enterprise start-ups achieve their full potential through mentorship with one of NetApp’s largest R&D teams.
“These six start-ups were carefully selected from over 450 applications. Our mentors and in-house technology experts took great care in creating custom programmes for each of them. Through their time with the NetApp Excellerator Programme, SigTuple, one of the participating start-ups received funding,” said Ajeya Motaganahalli, Senior Director and Leader of the NetApp Excellerator Programme.
“Anlyz and BlobCity initiated multiple proof-of-concept projects, and some big customer wins for a couple of other start-ups. By the end of the programme, each of them had fine-tuned their approach, products, target market and Cloud strategy,” Motaganahalli added.
Applications for the third cohort are open until August 5.
The company said that start-ups working in areas related to IOT, Cloud, big data and analytics, machine learning (ML), virtualisation, data security, storage, data management and other adjacent areas can apply. (IANS)Click here for reuse options!
