A six-month cohort-based setup, the WebEngage Startup Program, was brought to life last year during peak months of Covid-19. What we witnessed was noteworthy. 150+ startups applied for Class of 2020-21; 90+ select startups graduated with phenomenal success and enhanced growth plans. Over 25% of these startups also raised their next round/Pre-series A of funding.

By enrolling in the WebEngage Startup Program, we’ve adopted a growth marketing approach that shall help us scale our business faster and bring down acquisition costs over time. We’ve increased our revenue by 23% and continue to grow it even further. The Onboarding and Customer Success teams at WebEngage have been highly supportive throughout the program.
It was rewarding to see teams and brands associated with us witnessing accelerated growth, especially amidst the crisis!
Carrying the same vision and spirit, we’re delighted to announce the second cohort of the WebEngage Startup Program.
