The startups were selected from over 200 applications and will get a $15,000 grant from NetApp. “In India we have seen there is a lot of stress on B2C. But, we are focused on the B2B space. We believe there is long-term value creation in that space,“ said Ajeya Motaganahalli, Leader NetApp Excellerator Program.
