Techcircle Startup Mumbai 2015: Your guide to Mumbai’s startup ecosystem


After conducting successful startup events in Bengaluru and Delhi earlier this year, Techcircle.in — an enabler of India’sstartup ecosystem for a decade through the VCCircle Network — is back with the Mumbai edition of Techcircle Startup 2015, to be held on December 17 at ITC Maratha.

Mumbai has emerged as the third-largest hub for startups in India, with Powai leading the way. A rich combination of technical skills, business colleges and historical risk-taking abilities nurtured by many angels and financial backers have made Mumbai an ideal setting for budding entrepreneurs to seek growth through their unique and dynamic business ideas.

In this backdrop, Techcircle Startup 2015 will be your ultimate guide to the startup ecosystem in and around Mumbai and Pune. The event will bring together early-stage startups, current and potential investors, angels, seed funds, incubators, accelerators and mentors, along with many of India’s most active VC and PE funds. The event will help encourage emerging startups through unique and enterprising pitching formats and showcase sessions featuring angel investors, VCs, mentors and startupenthusiasts.

Adding to the excitement of participants, the event will also see tailor-made platforms to connect investors and entrepreneurs. These would include Startup Walkabouts, Startup Fair, Spot Hire and Entrepreneur-Investor meet-up. Participants will get an opportunity to see the way investors and rising stars in the startup space function and manage their business. Besides, they will get the opportunity to showcase ideas, hire the right talent and cultivate values for good business practices through first-hand inputs and practical insights.

The event will also include panel discussions from an impressive line-up of speakers on the following topics:

  • Food-tech: Scale up or go under?
  • E-groceries: Is there life beyond introductory discounts?
  • FinTech: Technology and the unbanked.
  • Hyperlocal services: Can it go beyond groceries/food?
  • Digital content: The key behind creating sticky content.
