  • Testimonials

    During my first day, I was not even able to define the technology in simple words. The few months in XLr8AP changed my outlook. Now, I don't talk technology: I can effectively communicate and persuade and my presentations are much more effective. I was able to get a collaboration opportunity with a giant multinational company thanks to the work XLr8AP team put in shaping MasterKube communication. I would recommend any budding entrepreneur to be part of XLr8AP. It is invaluable.

    “We were intrigued to learn about Xlr8 Andhra Pradesh and initially had apprehensions about effectiveness of the program since it was in Tirupati and not at any metropolis or the major start up hubs. However, the very first day at the program changed our perspective and we realized that this was one of the most effective deep dive programs we attended. Having been part of Microsoft Accelerator, Start Up Chile, we had prior exposure to top global accelerators and we have to admit that Xlr8 program was second to none. It was an amazing experience and the team lead by Glenn, Venkat, Chandana, Aruna and others have done an amazing job in helping us enhance our sales capabilities and also enabled us to think beyond boundaries of metros and do business in tier 2 and tier 3 cities and towns. We are very keen to expand our business in Andhra Pradesh and start by setting up a support centre for IDOS at Tirupati."
