Arifa Khan from Genius Incubator invites you to Destination India 2010 - Early stage investing event
We started Genius Incubator with a simple mission: We help entrepreneurs and young companies from India access international capital for their growth plans. Companies in the early growth cycle in India have traditionally sought funding from local sources, but have been hampered by the absence of an effective eco-system of angel investors. We bridge the gap by providing access to the international community of experienced investors who can provide funding as well as guidance and vision for these companies.Destination India is our humble effort to energise the entrepreneur-investor ecosystem in India.

The event is on the 11th and 12th November at The Taj President, Mumbai.
On the first day, we have prominent Indian VCs present their views on popular investment sectors: Mobile, Technology, Education, Healthcare, Consumer, Social Enterprise and an overview of early-stage investment landscape in India.
On the second day, we bring you The Smart Money & Genius Ideas showcase. It will present 16 pre-screened investment opportunities to angel investors, VCs and HNWIs. These 16 companies are together seeking to raise capital to the tune of GBP10 million. If you are an investor looking for the best early and growth stage entrepreneurs in India, and to familiarise yourself with the investing environment in India, this is the perfect platform for you to directly interact face to face with creme-de-la-creme entrepreneurs and other investors!
The time has arrived for the global angel and VC community to have a serious look at India!
