Avlesh Singh, Co-founder & CEO, WebEngage, says, “While we’re in the middle of a unicorn boom, startups need to remember that engaging and retaining their customers is a key to building an enduring business. 90% of startups fail because they run out of money to continue acquiring customers while they’ve not paid adequate attention to retaining earlier customers – which is unfortunate. Through the Program, we aim to help startups to lay the groundwork for long-term retention, in setting the right dashboards and running highly personalized engagement across channels.”

The first season of the WebEngage Startup Program saw applications from over 80 startups across India, South East Asia, Middle East and Latin America. These startups include now known brands such as Fampay, Mudrex, Bare Anatomy, Phool, Air Black, Crejo, among others. The Program has helped increase the brands’ user engagement, retention, and transactions alongside growth in their user base. For example, Fampay witnessed a 2X improvement in the onboarding funnel, a 22% increase in transactions made by the teenagers, and a 40% boost in the number of referral users. Another social impact D2C brand Phool saw a 23% increase in its revenue.

Kush Taneja, Co-Founder at FamPay said, “The WebEngage Startup Program helps us engage with users effectively, provide delightful experiences and build long-term relationships with them.”

Ankit Agarwal, Founder at PHOOL said, “By enrolling in the WebEngage Startup Program, we’ve adopted a growth marketing approach that shall help us scale our business faster and bring down acquisition costs over time.”
