SeedVC supporting dreams of young founders around the nation
New Delhi: IIT Kharagpur and SeedVC have joined hands to help the Entrepreneurial cell organize the Invest-o-spective Competition under the initiative called Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2022.
SeedVC has been supporting various organizations not just through monetary means, but by providing their guidance and mentorship as judges at various events. Their funding has been partly contributed to the prize- some of which ranges up to ₹1,00,000.
In this competition, the young founders presented their ideas to the SeedVC board, who provided them with the right guidance, mentorship, and subsequently funding to help power their dreams.
Currently, the entrepreneurial space in the country is witnessing a massive boom and has been part of dinner-table conversation due to the rise of pop culture and media that discuss business.
This isn’t SeedVC’s first stint with student entrepreneurship. They’ve also been actively helping the young founders at Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship through Eureka! Fest. SeedVC is the venture partner of the event that is powered by the Gulf Islamic Investments. This event is slated to be the Gulf region’s counterpart to Asia’s largest business model competition.
Previously, the company has mentored and funded ‘Empresario’- the annual business model competition organized by Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Kharagpur. The company is devoted to diversifying the space of FinTech, cleantech, and health care by investing in data-driven analytics start-ups. They have a special interest in funding businesses run by women founders. The company is headed for the Top 10 lists with their various endeavors in the young founder space.
Gaurav Aggarwal, Managing Partner at SeedVC said, “I’m in awe of what young minds are capable of, and seeing the future of business unravel right in front of us is nothing short of a privilege. We at SeedVC have had a lot of experience dealing with all kinds of business, but watching entrepreneurs in their element has been the most exciting turn in our career. We look forward to witnessing the future right in front of our eyes.”
