Amit Pandey, COO at Inc42 said, “While there are hundreds of initiatives around startups, with most of them focused around the early stage segment, the industry still remains unorganised. Young entrepreneurs don’t have an one stop platform for the knowhow of the whole scenario. That’s where ‘The Misfits’ comes in.”
