 Speaking about the development, Ninad Karpe, Partner, 100X VC, said,

“We are excited to unveil the 10 startups that are part of our Class 07 cohort. Each of these startups have breakthrough ideas that can make a huge difference to our quality of life. The founders have undergone intensive mentoring and coaching from us and are now ready to pitch at our VC Pitch Day.” 

Started in 2019, 100X VC is sponsored by Mehta Ventures — investor Sanjay Mehta’s family office investment arm. The VC firm backs startups across sectors, including edtech, ecommerce, social media, and gaming, among others.

In the past two years, the early-stage investment ecosystem has seen a funding acceleration. Besides increasing the fund sizes, many venture capital firms also started setting up funds to invest in pre-seed startups.

Investing in startups also became an asset class attracting money from celebrities, serial entrepreneurs, and family offices, among others.
