All about Startup Funding

India ranks 3rd globally with more than 4,200 startups now. Last year was a watershed year for the Indian startups. According to NASSCOM, 2015 saw over $5 Bn of investment flowing into startups, compared to $3 Bn in 2014. The number of investors backing startups has grown 130% from last year on the back of a strong consumer base, the popularity of mobile phones, an active interest by the political class as well as global investors. Some of the critical questions at this moment are that Is The Funding Boom Over For Indian Startups? And does every startup needs to go for funding route? 

We will cover topics ranging from How to Seek Early-Stage Funding That Won't Spoil Your Startup, How to pitch the Idea and How the investors want to be pitched?
