Some glimpses from the eChai conversations on early stage fundraising held at HSR.

While I shared my learnings and what we look at Warmup Ventures, it was great to learn from

🚀 Inspired by the unwavering resilience of Indian founders and the boundless energy of Bangalore's startup ecosystem! 💪 Exciting to witness engineers, designers, bankers, and innovators alike, all fueled by the dream of launching their own startups in yesterday's eChai Ventures Demo day and fireside chat hosted by Puneeth Suraana .

💡 Ideation is at its peak much higher than 2007. Being a Startup Founder myself, I so much relate to the potential mistakes an emerging founder can avoid fundraising and pitching to VCs. I am grateful for the opportunity to connect, learn and exchange ideas with these fellow enthusiasts.

🌆 Bangalore, a melting pot of talent and ambition, continues to be the heartbeat of India's startup revolution. Looking forward to continued collaboration and impact in the space through my learnings from Tinkerly and via platform of Warmup Ventures
