The sixth annual Indian Alternative Investments Summit (IAIS) was also hosted last week. The event was jointly organised by the Association of International Wealth Management of India (AIWMI) and Indian Association of Alternative Investment Funds (IAAIF). It saw participation from trustees and representatives of institutions as well as money managers and consultants. It also provided a platform for in-depth private meetings with active investors.
Also, the Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell) of Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) successfully hosted the fifth chapter of ‘The Ten Minute Million Challenge’, as part of its annual event – The Entrepreneurship Summit.
During this event, 10 selected startups got an opportunity to pitch their ideas to investors and raised a funding of INR 16 Lakh ($22.4K).
Another interesting event that took place last week was the first edition of SaaSBooMi, a SaaS conference where the participants got an opportunity to showcase their product apart from attending workshops on go-to-market strategy and investor readiness sessions.
Without further delay, let us take a look at the startup events in the coming week. Mark your calendars!
