Being a part of this event, we had fantastic, insightful conversations with the entrepreneurs and participants. I am excited to see what the future holds and what’s next from the PedalStart team.”
Besides attracting some of the leading VCs and angels, Builders’ Mixer also parallelly succeeded in providing an unforeseen networking opportunity to a group of 40 visionary startup founders who PedalStart selected to be a part of this exclusive, invite-only event.
Aditya Darolia, Co-Founder of PedalStart said, “We are thrilled to witness PedalStart’s Builders’ Mixer emerge as an august gathering of industry-leading enablers, and pave the way for immersive networking between these resourceful angels, HNIs and VCs.
Marking our three-year journey in the Indian startup ecosystem, the event also served as a Kickstarter for PedalStart’s next big strides in the offline space, including the launch of our forthcoming offline innovation hub in Bengaluru – PedalCircle”.
With this cohort, we aim to pick selected 12 startups and invest overall around USD 1.5 Million as a pre-seed round and build them for the seed round.
