What we're about

Indian Startups, a 90,000+ member community, is a startup ecosystem bringing together entrepreneurs, investors and partners throughout India and across the globe to help nurture, nourish and empower new and growing startups.

Indian Startups has a big community with membership running into several 1000s. Indian Startups community members get the opportunity to connect with co-founders, startup team members, mentors, advisers. incubation facilities, co-working spaces, agencies in seed funding, crowd funding, high networth individuals and other essential startup partners.

Indian Startups aims to primarily make entrepreneurship affordable for every deserving entrepreneur regardless of financial status and geographical location. We wish to reach out to even remote cities & towns where not many organizations have ventured to extend startup help. We strive to nurture & nourish a great idea where ever it emanates and help it to see the light of the day.

Indian Startups Network seeks to build partnership with organizations geared to play a vital role in building the entrepreneurial ecosystems in India. Along with its partners, Indian Startups believes that Startups can bring a fundamental growth across the country and provides a platform to sustain the growth.

Indian Startups Volunteers have very simple short term goal. The goal is to answer:

Did my activity / volunteering work help a deserving entrepreneur/startup?

Indian Startups has chapters across the globe. Some of the most active chapters being Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, New York, Houston, Texas, Edison, Chicago, and many more coming up.

Note: Most of Indian Startup events are free events. As Indian Startups tries to make things happen for free we may have to be agile to circumstances and hence we ask the participants to be agile with the dates and venues. Please always check your event status frequently.
