Aspire Kickstart Challenge 2021
AIC–PIF organized the “Aspire Kickstart Challenge 2021”, in association with HeadStart, NEN and TIE (M.P.)
The aim and intention was to enable and promote startups, especially from Central India, to reach out to the national investors’ community and be recognized to be in the main stream of high value and disruptive startups.
It was Central India’s biggest pitch event, in which the startups and budding innovators pitched their ideas, business plan or prototype to pitch to top angels, VCs & HNIs across the country for funding and mentoring and incubation support.
More than 700 startups across the country registered for the event. Several curated workshops & boot-camps on ideation, funding, go-to-market strategy, pitch deck, business plan canvas and pitching do’s & don’ts, were arranged for all the registered startups.
After a rigorous shortlisting process, a further one-to-one mentoring & pitch-deck presentation workshops were arranged for shortlisted startups.
On the final pitch day the shortlisted startups presented their business ideas and pitches to more than 25 top angel investors, VCs & HNIs across the country.
