Technology has emerged as a game changer, playing a pivotal role in transforming and growing businesses. Defining scope and scale, it is the biggest disruptive force across industries. Fund houses are alive to this fact, which is why tech-based startups have emerged as the most sought-after investment opportunity in the recent past.

The success stories of Flipkart, Ola, Paytm, Zomato and Byju’s among others have led to increase in internet consumption, with tech-based businesses in general recording exponential growth over the past five years.

The overall picture for tech startups appears encouraging. With only a third of the Indian population using the internet, the scope for growth is immense. India is the second largest online market after China with over 460 million internet users & estimates show that by 2021, there will be about 636 million internet users in India.

At News Corp VCCircle’s upcoming workshop, delegates will receive a comprehensive knowledge about fundraising processes, new valuation methods and approaches, key legal aspects as well as governance and regulatory matters surrounding tech startups.
