WHAT #MISFITS WANT
WHAT DID WE ASK

Why and how
To become better Investors, we challenged ourselves to get to know the Indian entrepreneur better.
We ran the What #Misfits Want survey to ask Entrepreneurs what were their expectations from investors during the fundraising process and also what were the critical areas where they needed support from their investors post investment.
The survey received responses from over 1800 entrepreneurs in the first half of July 2019.
