From its maiden conference in Goa last year, Startup India Rocks has expanded to a 20 city roadshow in 2016, collecting talent from smaller cities, and connecting them with international investors and delegations at the finale at Bangalore. Commenting on the event, Mr. MandarGadkari, Director – India, Cross Border Angels, said, “Ahmedabad has a great ecosystem, but it needs an international connect. We want to create India’s biggest roadshow by tapping into the local ecosystems, and the primary goal is to get these startups funding. It’s great to have MICA as a partner, as to tap into a local body, we need local intelligence, which MICA represents.”
