In the second edition of Rajasthan Digifest 2017, a two-day mega event organised by Rajasthan state government’s Department of IT&C, six startups were selected during its Investor Connect programme.
Organised from December 2-3, 2017, the event was geared towards providing a platform to various individuals from the field of IT and e-governance to showcase their skills and innovation. The ‘24-hour mega-hackathon for startups’ and the ‘Investor Connect’ were the highlighted programs of the event.
The selected startups showcased their ideas to the investor partners of the Government of Rajasthan’s iStart programme. The startups were selected from the first batch of GoR’s Qrate programme, managed by Applyifi. Vasundhara Raje, the Honourable Chief Minister of Rajasthan, gave the first set of Qrate cards to selected startups.
Qrate is a unique program that assists startups to sharpen their business plans and investor pitch decks. The programme then connects them to potential investors and customers. Startups are first assessed on various parameters of business and then provided with the Applyifi scorecard and assessment report on their strengths and weaknesses.
