What is Startup Expo?

Startup Expo is a platform for startup founders to display/showcase their products/achievements or even interact and pitch their value proposition to all the guests attending the Summit.

Why Startup Expo?

Startup Expo creates a win-win situation for all the baskets of stakeholders, the startups, guests visiting the Summit and for E-Cell as well. Startups get huge publicity, networking opportunities while visitors get to know about all the trending and fast-growing innovations and technologies in the ecosystem. They get to know the founders, interact with them, and with venture capitalists and investors generating chances of mutual benefits.

Why will Startups participate?

  • Expo is the one of the best ways for startups to present themselves to a large of audience in a short period of time, at a very appreciable rate.
  • They get to market/sell themselves to all the guests, which might also consist of their target customers.
