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 six locations (Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Hyderabad, Navi Mumbai and Bangalore), have over 180 member companies and organise over 40 events every month across our locations.
