The SaaSBOOMi Fellowship

The SaaSBOOMi Fellowship Program opens the door to young, entrepreneurial minds to gain an early, insider track to this fast-growing, fast-changing world of Indian SaaS. The fellows bring in fresh ideas, are open to experimentation, can engage with experts, and lead initiatives independently. They believe and support the mission of Indian SaaS, and learn and grow exponentially themselves, with hands-on practical insights and a ringside view of the revolution.

We exist to help founders and their companies grow and change the world. We help them build the future of SaaS with a robust support system, valuable connections, and actionable playbooks from their peers. We have created safe spaces for founders to be open, transparent, and vulnerable. Here, founders build together, discuss their work, share knowledge, and help one another connect the dots. The fellows will be embedded into all of this.

The most unique aspect of SaaSBOOMi is its pay-it-forward ethos. Founders, volunteers, and fellows have a culture of giving before receiving. We deeply empathize with the entrepreneur and are guided by respect for the entrepreneur and the startup-building process. If you are a giver at heart and find the idea of working closely with founders who are building the future of Indian SaaS enriching and exciting, this fellowship is meant for you.

About SaaSBOOMi

SaaSBOOMi is a close-knit community of B2B SaaS founders from India. Idea-stage technology companies to bootstrapped giants and VC-backed unicorns are all part of our community, which now has a full-fledged US Chapter as well.

Founded by India’s best SaaS founders, SaaSBOOMi activities are volunteer-driven. That is, the founders themselves design and lead events, peer-to-peer learning sessions, mentorship programs, and so on, aimed to accelerate the growth of community members with specific support and guidance from shared experiences of tactics and mistakes. The vision is for India to become a dominant force in global SaaS, with its founders working together like a wolf pack.

Duration & Pay

It’s a 12-month fellowship program, extendable to 24 months. Compensation of Rs 50,000 per month will be provided to fresh graduates/those with up to two years of work experience. For those with more experience, the pay will be negotiated.

The first four weeks will be for familiarization with the existing initiatives of SaaSBOOMi, identifying opportunities to execute them better, and conceptualizing new initiatives aligned with the foundation’s objectives. The next 11 / 23 months will be spent in executing strategic initiatives. The fellows will be empowered to take ownership but provided with all the support and guidance they need.
