Startup Jalsa Pitch Session 2019
How big is your dream? How fast do you want to achieve it? Do you have the guts to go against the grain and take a risk? If you do, this is the right event for you.
Being through the journey of rejection, phases of desperation and self-doubt ourselves, we understand what it takes to get up every day and have the courage to follow your own heart and intuition.
Startup Jalsa is a startup platform – on a mission to inspire and invest in entrepreneurial talent – and help founders build enduring businesses.
Since its inception as a conference in 2015, over 2000 companies have participated in the various events of Startup Jalsa and they have gone on to raise cumulatively over 500crores in funding.
Investing in ideas which can disrupt the world
India is a land of entrepreneurship, catering to a population of 1.3bn. Right from the discovery of ‘zero’ by Aryabhata to the invention of rockets to innovation in other modern technologies, India has evolved in the field of automobile engineering, communications, information technology, space research, and polar technology. With India, evolved the Indian startup ecosystem. Companies such as Infosys, the Tata and Wipro groups took off in the 1980s.
Naukri.com and MakeMyTrip boomed during the DotCom boom and then came the age of mobile and Internet boom, where companies like Flipkart, Snapdeal, and Zomato prospered. Flipkart alone has a revenue of about $8.1bn and was recently acquired by Walmart, in the world’s biggest e-commerce acquisition to date, for USD 16 billion.
In an era when funding is not a far fetched dream, Jalsa is interested in investing in ideas which can disrupt the world. And, while we are interested in bringing these ideas to life, we are more than interested in embracing young and bright individuals and their ideas enthusiastically.
Startup Jalsa organizes varied events throughout the year to render entrepreneurs with a good amount of exposure. Entrepreneurs get to connect with the best of the startup ecosystem, be it traditional businessmen or novel and innovative entrepreneurs and pitch their startups to suitable investors.
