Here’s What You Need To Know
How can I be a part of this track?
VC Connect and Enterprise Connect
are two different tracks, and must be registered for individually. Dates and timings for the relevant tracks will be shared upon shortlisting. All startups will undergo a round of shortlisting based on the registration form to ensure relevant matches.
If selected, the startup will be notified by mail and will be required to buy the tickets (link will be provided) for confirmation of participation. Details regarding format and further details will be shared to the confirmed participants via mail.
Can I still participate if my company does not have a prototype/MVP?
Unfortunately, no. Startups who wish to participate must at least have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
When and where can I see the list of participating investors?
The list of participating investors and enterprises will be updated on this website on a continual basis.
How long will a meeting be?
Each startup will get up to 10-15 min per VC, and can expect to meet representatives from multiple funds in a speed dating format. Each meeting will be timed.
Can I still participate if I missed the pre-registration deadline?
No registrations will be accepted after the deadline closes.
Is it possible to apply more than once for my company?
Each company can only apply once to each track. Multiple entries for the same track will not be accepted, and do not increase the chances of more meetings being scheduled. In the event of multiple entries only the first entry received will be considered.
Can I change time schedules after I receive a confirmed meeting slot?
All meetings will be set according to a fixed schedule. Time schedules of confirmed meetings will not be changed. In case you are unable to meet the investors or the CXOs at the specified time, we will pass on your contact and company details to them after.
