The rest of the group is made up of on-demand delivery service Drop Buddies, outsourcing marketplace Wesabi, tutor platform Tuteria, outdoor advertising marketplace Vacantboards, and e-learning app startup Genii Games.

The 10 startups will now receive training and mentoring from industry experts, and training in growth hacking and market linkages.
