Event partner

Startup with IBM is one of Oswald Labs Accelerator’s event partners, which means that they do not directly offer benetifs to our portfolio startups, but have previously helped us in organizing events to find new startups and support new projects.


In June 2017, Oswald Labs and partners organized BharatHacks, a hackathon to solve India-specific problems. It had over 20 industry partners and over 200 participants, and Startup with IBM was one of our Technology partners.

All of this—all for free.
