The National Capital Region in India has been buzzing with activity and it’s been a while since YourStory conducted a meetup in the region. Now, we’re coming to Gurgaon along with knowledge partner iSeed for a meetup. For entrepreneurs the meetup intends to get founders of early stage companies together and discuss some of the challenges they're facing. The meetup is scheduled for June 6, 2015 at 5.30PM.
The theme for the event is #BreakingThrough and the idea is to talk about the challenges a young startup faces. Take an instance- about a year ago, hardly anyone had heard about the instant delivery app, Grofers. Now, the company has raised multiple rounds of funding and has scaled across the country. How can more startups follow this trajectory?
We want this meetup to be focused on start-ups which are in an early phase, ready with the product and are now going out to market. The presenting company can be in any sector and the idea is to learn from each other. We have Deepak Pandit from iSeed, angel investor Rahul Garg, founders Apurv (Squadrun), Ruchi (Venuelook) and other entrepreneurs joining us for the event. Jubin Mehta, our senior writer will be moderating the meetup. Here is the agenda, register here (all participants will get a confirmation mail):
5.30 pm- Get together and network
