Acapella - Venture-build and Exciting Conversations with Partners.
By Shashikiran Rao • Issue #9 • View online
Hi there,
In light of what the world, and especially India, has been going through these days, we did not find it appropriate to send out these updates and talk about ourselves.
This also gave us the opportunity to take a couple of weeks to focus and cudgel our brains. We’re back now, all set to make massive headway!
In the past few weeks, we had the opportunity to connect with amazing ecosystem builders from across the globe. The shared passion for enabling communities and empowering founders is truly what fuels them - and it’s about time someone came forward to build something for them.
At Acapella, we are leveraging their deep understanding of the ecosystem and untapped venture-building knowledge to create exponential impact. We are enabling these Venture Catalysts to become active operators of micro-accelerators, thereby increasing the surface area of innovation worldwide.

😎 This Week's Update!
  • It is heartwarming to see some of you (you know who you are) who thought this would be a great venture-build opportunity and introduced us to a few interesting people. We would love to continue such conversations.
  • We had promising conversations with venture catalysts from the top-10 global startup ecosystems - connecting with exceptional folks like:
Colin Donohue (Startup Grind, Georgia);
Colin Kinner (Startup Onramp, Australia);
Jatin Kataria (WE Group, India);
Yonca Braeckman (Impact Shakers, Belgium);
Laura Parkin (Ex-ED, Wadhwani Foundation).
  • We are looking forward to onboarding our beta users as the product is going to be ready in the next 4-6 weeks.
👀 What are we seeking?
  • We’re looking for a Program Facilitators to help us run some cohorts. If you or someone you know has prior experience in running accelerators or cohorts, please get in touch with us. 
  • We are looking to get into the Techstars Summer Program (Chicago or Los Angeles). If anyone knows the Managing Director, a recommendation would be very helpful.
  • If you have any recommendations or introductions for a venture build opportunity, we would be happy to explore them.
💻 Buy us an MVP!
Although a lot of people loved what we are building, we didn’t fit into their investment thesis. So, we set up a crowd-funding campaign that will still give you all an opportunity to participate and support us.
