Mastek Venture program bridges the gap between emerging startups and enterprise customers. Established in 2022 as the strategic investment arm of Mastek Limited, we invest in early to mid-stage companies building innovative enterprise solutions while aligning with our corporate growth strategies, boosting account enablement and exploring new revenue streams. As a leading innovation technology services provider and trusted advisor to G2000 enterprises, we provide our portfolio companies access to a broad customer base worldwide.
Project Startup Launchpad offers startups the opportunity to work with Mastek's technological and domain expertise in assets and saleable use cases, giving them access to a focused ecosystem to help them tailor their solutions to the market scale and innovate more rapidly. These solutions become bolt-on seed candidates for broader digital business ventures and are refined to create maximum impact.
For many startups, the most challenging part of bringing a solution to market isn't having a powerful idea or securing funding – it's the exact fitment to an enterprise business problem and validated by field-force.

I have worked with the solution team from their inception. We are one of their beta sites. The team is great to work with, receptive to feedback and feature requests and implementation. Since the implementation of solution on the sites of our three dealerships and their Facebook pages and Google listings we have seen our lead count grow by over 20%. We even use ad targeting to drop users into our messenger chat to get higher quality leads.- Joseph Malek: General Manager - Merced Kia, VW, Hyundai
The solution has been very beneficial to North Bay Ford in engaging our prospects who visit our website and social media pages. The chat presence gives us one more opportunity to keep the visitor on our digital properties and get their information for follow-up. The automation enables a faster response time than one of my sales people or an outsourced center is able to do. The integration with our inventory provider and CRM helps the intelligence in the bot to win customers during the conversations. I especially like the alternate vehicle suggestion if the original vehicle of choice is not available.- Alejandro Restrepo: General Manager - North Bay Ford, Santa Cruz, California
By managing our website and social media chat the solution ensures immediate responses to customers looking for vehicles on these digital channels. In the current day, customers are shopping on a variety of platforms for the same vehicle. Speed and quality of response is critical in capturing this customer and keeping them engaged. This has helped keep our sales and front office personnel concentrate on the most serious customers and leads. I am especially impressed with the quality of reports and personalization of their support interaction with our operations team.- Chad Coates: General Manager - Ken Grody Ford - Inland Empire
