T-Hub is proud to announce our partnership with FalconX to launch the Trestle program.
A unique initiative between two renowned ecosystem partners to help Indian startups gain market access in the USA. The program offers not only just market access but also mentor connects, industry exposure, investor facilitation, etc.
The Trestle program is designed for Indian startups looking for the right resources and connections to make their expansion a success.
T-Hub as part of Trestle will shortlist high-quality startups and provide them with a 5-week intervention program at T-Hub, during which they will be given mentorship, marketing plan and strategy, sales planning, evaluation of product and readiness, ideas for product scalability and security and knowledge on the funding mechanism. These interventions are framed keeping in mind the necessities of the startups for the USA market expansion.
Likewise, the Indian startups after the interventions will be sent to FalconX, USA for a 4-week program. The interventions provided at FalconX will add to the foundation laid during the Indian intervention program. This will prime the startups to make their entry into the USA market.
Startups eligible to apply for the Trestle program will have to meet the following criteria:
