“It’s Time To Pitch Big, Make It Happen Now”
RBL Bank Indian Startup Club and 1Crowd bring together an exciting event – “The Big Pitch” for startups to propel them onwards in their journey for growth. RBL ISC Program and 1Crowd have been extremely active in the startup ecosystem and with the launch of this event they are taking the next step in terms of bringing opportunities to startups.
The Big Pitch is a startup pitch competition and a gala event, which aims to provide startups with the much needed launchpad to reach the next level in their journey of business evolution. It also brings together startups with investors as well as industry giants from finance, banking legal and technology on a common platform.
The pitch competition will include two separate contests – the Incubation Contest and the Funding Contest thereby allowing startups at different stages of evolution to participate. Shortlisted contestants will be given an opportunity to pitch their businesses to a distinguished jury panel of industry veterans, academic experts and experienced investors.
The incubation contest is an opportunity for early stage startups to acquire the right mentorship, resources and industry connections in order to build successful startups. The winners of the incubation contest will gain admission into “Inspire!”, a state-of-the art incubation center powered by 1Crowd and hosted at the Christ University, Faculty of Engineering. The funding contest gives startups an opportunity to be considered and fast tracked for funding through 1Crowd’s equity crowd funding platform.
Winners of both contests will also be provided with various other benefits and prizes by RBL Bank and other knowledge partners including Grant Thornton and Khaitan & Co.
Applications are being accepted via the event webpage and will be open until November 19.
The Big Pitch event is scheduled for 26th November 2016, at Christ College, Koramangala in Bangalore. In addition to the pitch sessions, selected startups will have an opportunity to hear from prominent entrepreneurs, angel investors and senior industry executives on how to effectively navigate the long and challenging journey of starting up.
