Eduglid will provide the startups seed funding of up to Rs 15 lakh in return for a minor stake of less than 10%, mentorship and guidance, connecting to VCs, business management, customer acquisition, and marketing.

The accelerator has tied up with Cisco for mentorship and networking access.

It already claims to have received 300 applications from startups in the education sector from across India, and has selected four under its training platform.
