We are introducing a brand initiative, a live funding programme, in our forthcoming event Techcircle Startup 2012, to be held in Delhi on Dec 11. This is a platform for unfunded startups and India's most prominent investors to make a live pitch and receive instant funding commitment.
Here is how it works.
If you are a startup with a highly innovative technology or a beta product, have some market traction (such as a big customer or two) and have a small team, then you can apply to the live funding programme. We will shortlist 15 companies from the applications we receive who can make a pitch at the event to a select group of early-stage investors.
Also, five out of the 15 presenting companies have an opportunity to receive live funding to the tune of Rs 5-25 lakh from India's most prominent angel investors. What's more, those investors will transfer the funding in a week, after completing the necessary documentation and formalities.
Once your startup has been shortlisted for presenting, the Techcircle team will work closely with you to refine the pitch to be made to the investors at Startup 2012.
Besides live funding, the event also features a co-founder dating programme. If you are thinking of starting up and looking for co-founders, we can probably help you find other like-minded individuals at Techcircle Startup 2012.
Techcircle Startup 2012 is a new annual event for startups, by startups, produced by Techcircle. We have several successful startup founders sharing their journey and learning, which can fast-track your entrepreneurial career.
We want to call it a one-day MBA in starting up, building a team, pivoting, raising capital and finally, building a sustainable business. Click here for more details.
