Funding Landscape is Changing: You need to learn the new rules

As seen in news these days, startups have started downsizing, being acquired and even shutting shops. The funding landscape is changing and entrepreneurs will have to adapt to the new paradigm, which is not actually new but going back to the old basics. So, what are those basics, what has changed and how to adapt your mindset to create a successful, fund-able startup in the current and coming years. Let's learn all that in the next W2E session.

1) Funding - Learn the new rules:

Below are the broad topics we would be discussed in detail in this session, with the help of examples and case studies and a lot of valuable takeaways:

  • Understanding the shift in startup funding paradigm 
  • The change in the key factors (unit economics, CAC, LTV etc.) that would make your startup fund-able
  • How a small startup can prepare (documentation, the process etc.) itself to get funding
  • The funding trail: when, where, how to approach investors

Who can present their prototype? Can you please specify the criteria?
Yogender Verma's picture
There are two things Prateek, as far as the presenting the prototype etc. in the startup showcase section is concerned, we send a mail to invite the showcase (a week or two before the event) and people have to respond to that. But otherwise one can always bring one's prototype and show it to the fellow entrepreneurs during the networking session and take their feedback.
