What it Takes to Start & Scale a Startup in Trying Times

Event Highlights

About the Event

While India has been one of the most promising places for startups and entrepreneurs, the past year has been one marked with many challenges, forcing many to make strategic moves and business pivots. The ecosystem which once easily allowed for entrepreneurs to build products, raise funds and launch products to customers has just gotten more difficult. The industry has now reached a stage which demands startups to have a stronger product market fit and a clearer growth roadmap. Even VCs and investors have become more stringent with funding ideas and entrepreneurs. So, how do entrepreneurs crack this new market dynamic? How to build lean business models that are sustainable? And, how to create an impact and raise funds in this tough market? Join us in our session, ‘RevUp Delhi - What it Takes to Start & Scale a Startup in Trying Times’ to learn from serial entrepreneurs, veteran investors and business leaders on how to build, raise and be successful in the most difficult of times.
