Meet innovative startups at Techcircle Startup 2012; focus on live funding & co-founder dating

28 Nov, 2012

India's most innovative and disruptive startups are attending Techcircle Startup 2012 to learn from and share notes with the country's top entrepreneurs, like-minded peers, and angel & early-stage investors. The event will be held on Dec 11 at Le Méridien in Delhi.

Speakers from highly innovative and disruptive tech companies across hot segments like e-commerce, software, mobile, cloud and consumer services will join the startup summit for meaningful conversations based on hands-onexperience, instead of run-of-the-mill company presentations. In addition, there will be angel and venture capital investors who are looking to spot the next big thing in the Indian startup ecosystem.Live FundingIf 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, you can apply for Live Funding. We will shortlist 15 companies from the applications we receive and during the event, they can make a pitch to India's most prominent investors and receive instant funding commitment.

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 funds in a week, after completing the necessary documentation and formalities.
