What is #FindingMisfits?
#FindingMisfits is the startup selection event of Orios Venture Partners. We are on a mission to find #Misfits who dream to change the world. Each #FindingMisfits event will carry a forward-looking theme that is expected to ignite many future startups in the country. The selected startups will receive a comprehensive springboard.
The theme on 26th July is ‘Targeting the next 300 million internet users in India’. What we have seen in the last 7-10 years is the birth of e-commerce and various services serving the first lot of 50 million users. In the next 3-5 years, we will see a rapid growth of users from the next 300 million users, who have come online recently and many are expected to start transacting soon.
If you are a startup founder or team focusing on these consumers, who may or may not live in the top cities and are making a business model in any sector, be it vernacular content, health care, education, e-commerce, fintech, FMCG, retail, agri or any other, you should submit your pitch deck . We would love to know more!
What's in it for you?
Well, quite a bit. The top 3 startups will get a chance to receive funding of up to Rs. 7 Cr from us. At the live event on the 26th of July in Bengaluru, there will be talks and guidance from VCs, entrepreneurs and experts in the Indian startup ecosystem.
Thanks to our generous and like-minded partners, you can also expect a rafter of benefits in tech, mentoring, exciting workspaces to house your team and accelerate your company, IT infra credits, travel, accommodation credits and more. Entrepreneurship is a long and arduous journey and we are hoping to make it a tad lighter.
