Another Bridge with India – Maharashtra

Over the past year, BootUP Ventures has had the privilege to welcome many delegations from India.  The most recent was a very distinguished business delegation led by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) in conjunction with the Government of Maharashtra.  The delegation included 16 promising Indian entrepreneurs, joined by top officials from the Government of Maharashtra and FICCI.  These startup companies were in Silicon Valley to attend TiEcon, the world’s largest entrepreneurship conference.

Before making their appearance at TiEcon, the startups were hosted by BootUP for a 30 second interactive pitch workshop with Mukul Agarwal, CEO & Founder of BootUP. Each startup received critical and constructive feedback to help them craft their message in order to pique interest for a second meeting.  Throughout the workshop, Mukul Agarwal shared his perspectives on the entrepreneurial mindset and what it takes to move from success to significance.   BootUP also invited leading entrepreneurs, influencers, and investors from the Indian tech community in Silicon Valley to join the evening program, providing great insight and knowledge sharing to the delegation.

Special thanks to key support provided by: Priya Rajan and Silicon Valley Bank for the sponsoring the evening; Raj Fiber, Shehzad Merchant and Radhesh Kanumury for their insight; Nikhil Agarwal and  FICCI for bringing the group to BootUP; and Shri Aseem Gupta, IAS, Principal Secretary of the Government of Maharastra for supporting the vision of a strong  entrepreneurial community and network throughout Maharashtra with a strong dynamic bridge to Silicon Valley.  BootUP looks forward to building that strong bridge with Maharashtra.

BootUP regularly welcomes Governments and their delegations from all over the world.  If you would like to learn more, please contact jayne@bootupventures.com
