Words by the conclave chairman
“One of our main intentions of the conclave is to reach out to entrepreneurs in Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities where there is no proper startup ecosystem or has weak ecosystem. We wish to mentor them & connect them to prospective investors. We don’t believe in Gyan Sessions or CEO Talks and hence we don’t have any of these in our programs. We believe in value additions to the Indian startup Ecosystem.” Madhav Reddy, Chairman – The Founders Conclave
