It’s been exciting journey for startups and we as organisers to go through this dashing experience.
After a gruelling selection from hundreds of applications, we handpicked 13 startups to pitch at StartupDash. From LaunchPad to Mentoring to PitchUp, every aspect was a great learning for all the 13 startups.

Format is good, as startups will find real value out of it, as they get chance to get connected to like-minded people, finding mentor and direction while doing a startup i difficult, so this kind of event platform provides a good direction for such startups.
