Venture Catalysts organizes event for tech start-ups


‘Build for Million Users’ will be held at InnoWorks in Andheri, Mumbai on May 18, 2018.

Highlighting its continued efforts to encourage innovation in the country’s start-up ecosystem, India’s first and largest integrated incubator Venture Catalysts is all set to organize an event called ‘Build for Million Users!’ The event will enable early-stage tech start-ups to connect with, pitch their products to, and get feedback from product managers of leading consumer start-ups, apps and large established brands. The ‘Build for Million Users!’ event will be held on Friday, May 18, 2018, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Venture Catalysts’ co-working space InnoWorks in Andheri, Mumbai.

Five curated start-ups will present their product demos to five leading product managers. Each demo will run for five minutes, followed by a 10-minute Q&A round. During the Q&A, the product managers will offer feedback, advice, and actionable inputs for each startup on how they can enhance their respective products to meet specific objectives. The panel of product managers helming the demo will represent leading start-ups including BookMyShow; Hotstar, Hungama; Toppr and Ridlr.

Speaking of the upcoming event, Dr. Apoorv Ranjan Sharma, Co-Founder & President, Venture Catalysts, said, “A good product that easily finds users and is used repeatedly is what makes a start-up truly successful. The art of building a great product that customers love is something that any start-up which dreams of a million users must master. This event will help these start-ups get the head-start they need to achieve this goal through insights on what customers want and learn to build a scalable product from some of the most influential product managers in the country.”
