UIncept’s iXi Summit 2020: To Bring Together Investors, Startups And C-Suite Executives


With the aim of creating ‘Future-Proof Businesses’, iXi summit is hosting investor pitches, hackathons, panel discussions, networking sessions and more

The speakers from the summit include names such as Sairee Chahal, founder & CEO, Sheroes, Raghav Verma, cofounder, Chayoos, Ankur Warikoo, Nearbuy.com, Udit Mehrotra, Spectra and more

The summit will be held in UIncept HQ in Gurugram on February 5-6

While estimates say that India will be home to over 100K active startups by 2025, up to 90% of Indian startups shut shop merely five years after their inception. This can be attributed to a lot of factors such as lack of innovation, mentorship, investments and more. But the fact remains that many of these 100K startups are starting off today as an idea.

To counter these issues, ecosystem stakeholders are working to bring these ideas into the open in the form of summits and programmes. Among those stakeholders is UIncept Accelerator. Since its inception four years ago, the accelerator has worked with over 30 startups and has helped them raise over INR 40 Cr in investments.

To further amplify the message of creating future-proof businesses, UIncept recently-launched iXi Summit 2020, which is to be held in UIncept’s HQ in Gurugram on February 5-6.

A two-day summit, iXi stands for ‘Ideas meet Investors’ and aims to bring entrepreneurs, investors, mentors and policy-makers together to help push the startup agenda.

iXi summit 2020 is bringing many investors and accelerators to the summit to help unearth new ideas. Through the summit, UIncept is enabling startups from across India to counter issues such as attracting the right investors, obtaining mentorship, understanding the right approach to enter the market and more.

“As an accelerator, we wish to contribute towards reducing the high mortality rate for startups in the ecosystem. With events such as iXi, we want to take the conversation beyond just starting up to thriving.” – Manish Gupta, founder and chief mentor, UIncept

The last date for registering for the iXi summit is January 28, apply now before all the slots are booked.
