5Ideas To Hold ‘Startup Superfuel Pit Stop’ in Pune In Association with TIE Pune

by Paul Joseph on January 25, 2013 · 0 comments

Studies conducted in the US show that 24.3% start-ups based in the country have at least one immigrant founder.  Closer home, the rise of angel investors and the spurt in the e-commerce businesses have only increased the number of entrepreneurs. Earlier in September we reported how the Indian start-up scene got a boost with the launch of 5Ideas – a seed fund cum accelerator program started with the view to invest in tech startups, both online and mobile. Founded by Gaurav Kachru (ex-CEO of Dealsandyou ) and Pearl Uppal (co-founder and ex-CEO of Fashionandyou ), 5Ideas is now hosting its second ‘ Startup Superfuel Pit Stop ’ in Pune in association with TIE Pune. The first Pit Stop was held in Mumbai earlier in the month. The main purpose of this event is to address relevant questions pertaining to funding and investments that plague most entrepreneurs. These would include sharing information on who the VCs in the digital space are, why do investors value different businesses differently, what kind of investor you must approach, etc. The event will also see a panel sharing tips on what entrepreneurs can do to further their business and attract investors quickly. Speaking on this event, Gaurav Kachru said, “Over the last few years, there has been a tremendous change in the start-up funding environment, particularly in the digital space. With the advent of new players and tremendous growth of the innovation eco-system, new opportunities to grow & fund startups have emerged. Accelerators, Seed Funds, Angel Networks & VC funds have proliferated while the lines between them have blurred. The session aims to de-mystify and give clear thought to entrepreneurs on how to navigate and raise money in this new environment.” This event will give 8 entrepreneurs one-on-one meeting time with Gaurav and Pearl. Here, they can get their doubts addressed personally and get specifically catered tips. If entrepreneurs want this one-on-one meeting, they are required to register at http://startup-superfuel.eventbrite.com and follow a simple yet important set of directions. I think an interactive event like this is sure to benefit entrepreneurs and bring clarity to the seed funds/angel investors and start-up relationships. Wouldn’t you agree?
