The second leg of the multi-city US-India Investment Forums will be held in Bengaluru on September 3, 2016. A number of investors from the United States, among them Angels, VCs and funds investing in pre-Series A and Series A, will attend the the event at India’s Silicon Valley.
US investments in Indian startups have been steadily increasing over the years. Earlier this year, the Startup India initiative was launched by the Government of India to create an ecosystem that drive the growth of startups, foster entrepreneurship and promote innovation.
The American investors attending the Forums will get a first-hand experience of India’s startup ecosystem, while Indian startup founders and early-stage entrepreneurs will find a platform to listen to, interact and network with the US investors.
The Forums are being held in Delhi and Bangalore, two cities that are the three epicenters of the startup revolution in India. According to one study, the twp cities, along with Mumbai, accounted for 249 deals out of the 307 deals announced in the first quarter of this year.
One of the main highlights of the Forums will be a startup competition.
The winners in each city will be chosen by a panel of judges. Most of the judges will be investors from the United States who are attending the Forums. The winners will be invited to the United States to make their pitches before investors in the United States.
