GHV Takes Startup India Campaign To Next Level

The government’s recently launched “Startup India” campaign is all set to fuel the startup revolution in the country. In order to take the campaign a step further and put things into action, Green House Ventures (GHV) Accelerator has announced to take star performing startups from India to the Asia Leader’s Summit (ASL) 2016, a two day Startup Event to be held in Bali.

The event is aiming to provide these startups a chance to gain valuable exposure & insights that can give them an edge in the highly competitive market scenario as well as carve a niche for themselves.

The event will take place in Bali from the 27- 29 of January 2016. The objective of the summit is to build a robust, dynamic community of leaders, entrepreneurs and investors from the Internet & mobile industries across Asia, and create a regional platform for them.

The leadership summit will witness a special panel discussion on ‘India Now: The World’s Hottest Market’ where prominent speakers from India’s startup scene will highlight how India has risen to become the hottest startup market in the world. The speakers include Rajat Tandon, Vice President, NASSCOM; Vikram Upadhyaya, Chief Mentor & Accelerator Evangelist, GHV Accelerator; Vikram Gupta, Founder and Managing Partner, IvyCap Ventures and Shradha Sharma, Founder and Chief Editor of YourStory.

Speaking on the development, Vikram Upadhyaya, Chief Mentor & Evangelist at GHV Accelerator said, “This year, Startup India has taken center stage. ALS 2016 is hosting an India-centric theme, where over 2 days, a 100 plus investors from Asia will be meeting the 10 promising startups from India (who are at early & growth stages). GHV Accelerator is proud to take #StartupIndia to Asia in such a short time.”

The summit will provide these shortlisted startups an opportunity to network and gather experience from the ‘biggies’ of the Asian startup space.

The shortlisted startups are selected on the basis of their scalability; how will they impact the masses; their asset light model; fundability and the team.
