A week that was :)

It started by watching the movie #article370 and learning how the events progressed.

Movies such as Border, Uri, Gadar, Bhagat singh etc always lift that “Patriot” within us. A political thriller that Article 370 is, once again lifted that spirit in me. I was so proud to have such leaders who make things happen. Most of us “”speak” and dont “act”. We like to be on those postions and posts to “show off”. The key is contribution. Giving our 100%.

The objective of this show is to create more awareness and strengthen our startup ecosystem and provide the startup founders, not only with investments, but also venture building, scaling, cross border incubation and mentoring support.

As we embark on our journey to showcase this show on the national platform very soon, we sincerely thank Mr Suniel Shetty Sir who blessed us with his gracious presence and gave us immense strength to keep going.
