Our Engagement Process

Fill up the application

Submit your Application online. Tip - take time to fill in the application thoughtfully and carefully as the first impression is very important. Startups that submit their applications much in advance of the deadline have better leverage as we will have more time to read them.

Primary Evaluation & Selection

After the initial screening, shortlisted startups will go through a couple of interviews (video calls/ in-person meetings) for evaluation.

Engagement Workshop

Selected startups are invited to participate in our 3 day engagement workshop (conducted every 45 days) for group presentations and one to one discussion for final evaluation & selection. The engagement workshop also help founders understand what value ZNL can add to startups.

Engagement with portfolio startups

We want the startup founders to make their decisions. Consider us as sounding board which is just a phone call away whenever you need our help. We put a lot of emphasis on defining the KPIs that our portfolio startups shall set to achieve from time to time. Regular office hours with ZNL partners has worked out really well for all our portfolio startups.
