Startup Engagements Hit a New High with Cisco LaunchPad
VP, Engineering and Cisco LaunchPad, Exec Sponsor
With the graduation of the Cisco LaunchPad 3rd cohort startups, we have completed yet another successful phase of co-innovation. I would like to congratulate these 8 startups on their successful graduation. With every cohort, we expand and strengthen the network of Cisco, startups, and the partner ecosystem.
It is extremely humbling to see many of our LaunchPad mentored startups doing extremely well in terms of scaling up, achieving funding, awards and recognition in the ecosystem. Few of our startups are reaching new heights with their association with Cisco LaunchPad. Teslon has been closely working with Cisco in the European region, specifically Greece and Spain to deploy telemedicine solutions in over 40 locations using technologies from Cisco and Teslon’s Carenation.
Today, Cisco LaunchPad is home to 24 cutting-edge tech startups and a network of 70+ startup co-founders in India. It is gratifying that our startups see a huge value add in being part of this program. We understand that the technology and startup ecosystem is evolving faster than ever. Hence, our priority at Cisco LaunchPad is to continuously evolve and enhance the program to align with the requirements of the industry, startups, and Cisco. We are now gearing up for the 4th cohort. The key focus areas for the 4th cohort continues to be IoT, Security, and Network Management.
