Bringing its popular “Morning Pitch” tradition from Japan to the startup ecosystem in India, Deloitte hosted the seventh edition of Morning Pitch today (August 13) in Gurugram.

In the past five years, this event has enabled hundreds of business alliances and tens of mergers, alliances and IPOs. In India, the Morning Pitch has brought together various investors, startup enthusiasts as well as startups across segments.

In the past Indian editions, startups including Scribble Data, Ayasta, Minance, InTain, Niramai, Ethereal Machines, TagBox Solutions, Artivatic.Ai pitched to the attendees from large Japanese corporations Murata, Rakuten, Nomura, Toyota Tsusho, international corporations such as Bosch and Nvidia, along with VCs and ecosystem stakeholders such as Blume Ventures, Intuit Circles, Headstart.

For the seventh edition, Deloitte narrowed down on one of the raging advanced technologies — Internet of Things — and selected four startups in the domain to pitch to the investors. The organisers have now planned to narrow down the domain focus for each event so that the investment plan and understanding a business model is easier and communicable.

According to a report by the International Data Corporation, the global IoT market is set to hit $1.7 Tn by 2020. In India, the IoT market is poised to touch $15 Bn by 2020, according to NASSCOM. The trade association also predicts that by 2020, India will account for nearly 5% of the global IoT market.

According to estimates, of the existing 971 IoT startups in India, 70% were set up after 2010. Bengaluru remains the biggest hub as it is home to 51% of these IoT startups. IoT startups are evenly distributed across segments such as healthcare, transport, agritech, services, and logistics.
