October 2018 – Issue 8

Greetings from Venture Center!

The last few months have been action packed, and it gives us great pleasure to give you a sneak peak into all that has kept us busy!

In July, Venture Center played host to over 100 of India’s leading early-stage  biotechnology startups and  innovators, mentors, investors, and other stakeholders at the annual Biotechnology Ignition Grant (BIG) Conclave on July 27 and 28. Read on for highlights of the event, and video bytes from many of the invited speakers and participants at the conclave.

In September, after 6 months and 40 sessions, we concluded our flagship startup masterclass – Startup101. The lecture series is designed to support and encourage first generation entrepreneurs, by giving them the practical skills and tools needed to launch and grow their business. The series was very well received, and we’re delighted to share some of the awesome feedback we have received!

Last but not the least, in the last few months, we’ve also had the privilege of having many prominent visitors and speakers visit us and engage with and share their big ideas with our entrepreneurs and the Venture Center team.

This and much more in this issue!
