Inc42, a prominent player in India’s startup ecosystem, is gearing up to host an exclusive angel investing workshop in Jaipur, Rajasthan, on September 20. It is an invite-only event in collaboration with the Rajasthan government and to host industry leaders, founders as well as seasoned investors who will generously share their insights and investment strategies.
Rajasthan has lately emerged as a thriving hub in India’s startup landscape. It boasts a thriving startup ecosystem with more than 3,700 startups registered under the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). The primary reasons include a supportive government policy framework, a pool of talented individuals, and a conducive business environment.
In recent years, the state has witnessed substantial investments from both domestic and global venture capitalists. Some notable success stories include CarDekho, backed by Peak XV Partners; MedCords, supported by Info Edge; and Finova Capital, backed by Faering Capital. These investments have outpaced more established startup hubs like Delhi NCR and Mumbai, according to Inc42’s research.
This workshop aims to unlock the untapped potential of Rajasthan’s startup landscape and empower entrepreneurs and potential angel investors with the knowledge required to thrive in this vibrant environment.
The event will provide a platform to learn from industry veterans, including Anil Joshi of Unicorn India Ventures, Anup Jain of Orion Ventures Partners, and Tej Kapoor of IvyCap Ventures Advisors. These top-tier investors will share valuable insights into developing a successful investment thesis, identifying promising startups, and avoiding common pitfalls. Interactive sessions will delve into the intricacies of startup funding, including industry selection, team building, founder identification, and valuation for a smooth exit.
The workshop will also feature a startup showcase, providing attendees with the opportunity to discover new and exciting startups and enhance their angel investing skills.
