There are events which make investors happy. There are events which satisfy the ego of “mentors”. There are events which are value adding to partners and speakers. And then, there is #PitchOff! With a closed room pitching hour, where 10 startups battled it out to win the confidence of the panelists in 120 seconds, Pre Pitch Off Mumbai organized by The Tech Portal did full justice to the rawness and beauty of Khar Social, situated primely in Mumbai. Supported by NASSCOM 10K Startups, The Mentorpreneurs and ah! Ventures, along with the volunteer support from NMIMS, Pre Pitch Off Mumbai attracted number of tech startups and investors from across the Finance Capital of our country. The event saw 2 power packed quick talks by the likes of Aditya Save (CMO of Shaadi.com) and Pranay Swarup (Founder of Chtrbx and LetsIntern). While Aditya threw light on his mistakes in life and thus explaining the young startups about various things to keep in mind, Pranay gave a round up of his experiences of building something as big as LetsIntern and then ending it up with a successful acquisition. Sandeep Murthy from Lightbox VC firm, provided some quick insights on funding, investments and the investing scenario currently. The Mumbai edition of Pitch Off saw an amazing line up of investors who not only bounced some grilling questions during the Q&A but also provided their insights to the young entrepreneurs during the networking hour. Investors, accelerators and industry experts such as Vinod Keni (PeachTree Advisors), Sandeep Mulay, Nihar Ajmera (Network 18 Media and Investments Ltd.), Tanish Thakker (Zone Startups), Sandeep Murthy (Lightbox), Chiranjeev (Lead Angels), Ashwin (Idein Ventures), Vipul Mehta (Tipping Point), Bindia (CIO Angel Network) and many more joined the panel of judges. The judging panel after much deliberation selected Intelitaap, Indiefolio and Justap Media as the startups who would be getting a direct entry to the global event in Jaipur on February 18, 2017.
