As experts and investors predict a funding slowdown in 2016, ‘conserve and grow or perish’ has become the central theme for startups looking to overcome the tough times ahead. Consequently, many startups are scrambling to cut cost by shrinking their footprint and staff while a few are shutting shop.
In this backdrop, the VCCircle Network is coming up with its Bengaluru edition of Techcircle Startup on April 28, 2016. With the easy money phase for startups coming to an end, the event will seek answers to some key questions that will shape the course of startups in 2016. Most importantly, the event will try to find what startups can do to get it right in a largely constrained funding environment.
What can they do to adapt and weather this challenge? Are they able to capitalize on the expertise and resources of their investors, besides just funding? How best are they equipped to win and retain customers without burning too much capital? And are they able to execute right? These are some of the important questions which will be answered during the event.
Along with this, the Bengaluru edition of Techcircle Startup will also provide a comprehensive insight on the startup ecosystem in and around Bengaluru. It will bring together cutting-edge and disruptive early-stage startups, current and potential investors, angels, seed funds, incubators, accelerators and mentors, along with many of India’s most active VC/PE funds.
The event will also feature unique sessions like Startup Walkabouts, Startup Fair, Spot Hire and Entrepreneur-Investor meet-up.
