Startup Premier Leage
With the cricket fever having completely gripped the nation, Crownit, a leading merchant discovery and privileges platform, has announced its plans to bring the excitement home by organising its Startup Premier League. The event is meant to celebrate the exponential success that has been achieved by the Indian start-up community and promote the spirit of sportsmanship through the common thread that binds the country – cricket!
Scheduled to take place between May 6 and May 8, the three-day cricketing extravaganza will take place at the Abhi Sports Complex in Gurgaon. Apart from Crownit, the event will also see participation from six other leading start-ups including OYO Rooms, MobiKwik, Shopclues, Little, Fast Fox and Nearbuy (formerly Groupon).
Speaking on the announcement, Sameer Grover, Founder, Crownit, said, “The Indian entrepreneurial segment has received much success over the past couple of years and has seen immense growth owing to the mutual support and camaraderie that exists within the community. We are here for the long haul, and we are here to disrupt the way service delivery is approached! We, at Crownit, are true believers in sports and the spirit of gamesmanship, and organising this Startup Premier League is our way of celebrating this success through cricket, the common passion that binds all Indians! We are confident that once the gloves come on, we will witness entrepreneurial champions fighting hard to carry forward their boardroom dominance into the playing field.”
Crownit’s latest initiative highlights why start-ups are considered to be the most exciting place for both work and play for the upcoming generation of professionals. With business leaders from so many renowned start-ups taking to the field, Crownit’s Startup Premier League promises to be a worthy contest between the bat and the ball.
