The meticulously organized Investor Clinic served as a bridge, facilitating direct interactions, and paving the way for potential direction and feedback for the founders.

Notably, out of these forty plus startups representing the Delhi NCR Cluster, a rigorous screening process will identify the top 15. The selected 15 startups will be provided assured funding opportunities to the tune of $100K per startup through marquee investors.
