Startup Tales

Inspiring stories of Entrepreneurs who have started up and are currently growing their business. Listen to their struggles, their thought process and how they achieve success.

Open Pitches

Anything goes here. You want a co-founder or team member for your startup, you want to showcase your product, you want some serious product feedback, here’s the best place for it! Limited slots.

Smasher Awards

We’ve put together a Jury that will handpick a select few startups who have applied. They will then proceed to personally mentor these startups and get them ready to pitch at the Smashers Awards stage. The Jury votes for them and so do the audience. Folks coming out of the Smasher awards have gone on to building decent organisations over the years.  

Speed Date the Investors

Our Charter Member, Lizzie Chapman, once said, “Fundraising is like Dating. You have to kiss a lot of frogs.” We’ve put that to good use here, with a special speed dating with the investor session. Selected and curated startups will get a chance to present their elevator pitches to Angel Investors, Seed funds & VCs.
