Initiated in 2015, Speed2Seed is a unique program supporting early-stage entrepreneurs emerging out of India’s incubators and accelerators to become strong, investment-ready startups. Over the last year, we have worked with a group of 12 incubation programs, drawing best practices on topics ranging from internal incubation processes, startup investability, setting program structures and have developed a holistic curriculum to share.

Join us for an exciting day wherein we share our year-long learnings and our leading experts deep dive in to India’s current ecosystem to share what works, what doesn’t and how the best businesses are built.

Below is the event schedule and we look forward to hosting you!
