At Startup Showcase, we provide leaders with opportunities to engage our network of investors, corporates, startup peers, domain experts as well as industry thought-leaders. In this special edition, along with investment leaders presenting themselves (their latest programs, investment thesis, portfolio, and how they can help startup founders), we will also give opportunities to 10-12 founders to do their 30-second elevator pitches. So kindly RSVP & join us on time.

About WaterBridge Ventures: 

We founded WaterBridge Ventures in 2016 with a vision of creating a true venture catalyst for entrepreneurship. India had come off the peak of an aggressive funding cycle of consumer internet start-ups by traditional venture capital as well as non-traditional capital chasing growth, leading to many disappointing outcomes. Many rookie entrepreneurs and me-too avatars of global business models were finding hard to survive in a choked funding environment thereafter.
We could see bright spots in tech led disruption across sectors, regulatory tailwinds within the backdrop of the development of the Indian start-up ecosystem. $2 Trillion high growth Indian economy was getting fueled with mobile devices, young consumers, digital inflection points and entrepreneurial aspirations.
We are convinced that by 2030, India would see at least US$ 200 Billion of value creation through US$ 50 Billion of growth investments in technology disruption. In this backdrop we raised WBV-I and have built a portfolio of promising consumer and enterprise businesses. We continue to build our franchise to realize our vision and we love what we do!

About Blume Ventures: 
In 2010, Karthik and Sanjay started Blume Ventures, with a mission to reimagine startup finance for India. They did that by creating an unusual kind of venture firm, one that could move with the speed of an angel investor, but be institutionalized in its approach. Blume bridged a gap that had existed in the Indian venture market then, between local angel networks and larger global venture capital firms.
Along the way, this startup venture fund of ours has grown, backing transformational ventures and passionate founders, across our 3 funds to become a key player in India’s startup ecosystem. En route, we have invested in and helped build over a 100 startups, across geographies and verticals.
All of these startups are united by a common theme: they are looking to solve uniquely Indian problems, ones that emerge out of the vast complexities of building for and operating in the Indian sub-continent, with its 23 official languages, distinct cultural groups and disparate income levels. While the solutions are for India, their aspirations and attitudes are global, and they remind us that the next wave of global startups are beginning to emerge out of India.

At TiE Startup Showcase, we provide leaders with opportunities to engage our large networks on startups, investors, corporates, startup peers, domain experts and industry thought-leaders.
