The Appknox team had a great time yesterday at the Investor and Mentor meetup organized by Microsoft Ventures for its current batch of participants.

We think Microsoft is doing a great job supporting startups through its accelerator program. The event gave startups an opportunity to pitch in front of investors that included the likes of Mumbai Angels, Sequoia Capital, Hyderabad Angels, Indian Angel Network, Venture East, Ravi Gururaj, etc. to name a few.

We’ve grown and matured over the two months that we’ve spent here. The visibility, reach and intensity of the program drives startups to achieve tremendous progress during the four months of the program. Startups mature the business model, acquire deeper market traction and build world-class products in an accelerated fashion.

Here’s what we love even more. One of the startups wasn’t available to pitch because they were traveling for another event. Guess who stood up for them? None other than Ravi Narayan, Director of Microsoft Ventures. This shows how closely the team at Microsoft Ventures works with the startups that they accelerate.

Guess what? It doesn’t end here. Today, we’re catching up with customers at the Lavelle Road office. If you are interested to know more about mobile application security, we’d love to talk.
