BENGALURU, INDIA: Kris Gopalakrishnan, co-founder of Infosys and its former Vice-Chairman, has joined Axilor Ventures Chairman.

Axilor Ventures was founded in November 2014 by Gopalakrishnan, SD Shibulal, Tarun Khanna, Srinath Batni and Ganapathy Venugopal to serve as a platform for supporting innovation and entrepreneurship and help early-stage entrepreneurs.

Since its inception, Axilor has launched three programs–the Accelerator Program, Scale-up program (with access to seed fund) and Early Stage Funding program. Operating out of its new 20,000 sq ft campus in South Bengaluru, the company has successfully graduated its first batch of start-ups from its Accelerator Program, and is inviting applications for the second batch.

Venugopal, CEO of the company, said, “Most start-ups fail and often, do so for predictable reasons. The Accelerator program helps entrepreneurs improve their odds of success during their earliest days, which is when they need it the most. We are looking for gritty entrepreneurs with disruptive ideas in e-commerce, healthcare and clean-tech.”
