Who are we?
We believe ideas multiply when they come in contact with other ideas. And so we’ve created a collaborative environment where members can connect with each other, mentors, investors, and tap into the collective knowledge of the community. We have now grown to seven locations (Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Hyderabad, Navi Mumbai, Mumbai and Bangalore), have over 600 member companies and organise over 40 events every month across our locations.
