WHAT IS #FINDINGMISFITS
Our event for cutting-edge founders to get noticed, funded and learn.
We are on a mission to empower #Misfits who dream to change the world and work hard to turn it into a reality. In these events, we call for pitches from entrepreneurs and the top 3 startups get a chance to receive funding between $100,000 and $1 Million along with a comprehensive springboard from us. Additionally, we bring together successful entrepreneurs, venture capital investors and startup ecosystem builders for a day filled with learning sessions, panel discussions and informal networking events.
Each #FindingMisfits event carries a forward-looking theme that aims to ignite many future startups in the country. The latest edition was focused on FINTECH & INSURTECH.
