What our advisors say

What's in it for Startups ?

Being entrepreneurial is a natural state of being for Indians. Statistics say that 52% of Indians are self employed.

You have the energy. You have the ideas. We want to help you become better and bigger. As the largest organisation working for the interests of Industry in India, the Confederation of Indian Industry would like to enable startups. We hope to do this by bringing together all organisations and people working in this direction. You can expect to meet bankers, investors and government departments supporting entrepreneurship at CII Startupreneurs.

You can meet other businesses who may become your customers and are willing to offer insights about the state of the industry. You can meet fellow startupreneurs, quickly benchmark your offering and make invaluable connections.
