Ahmedabad: GVFL, the pioneer of venture capital in India, in partnership with iCreate, will co-organize a4X Connect, a dynamic seed-stage startup knowledge enhancement series, on September 26, Tuesday.
The a4X Connect is aimed at fostering connections between experienced mentors, venture capitalists, and aspiring startups and creating an ecosystem for the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and opportunities within the vibrant startup ecosystem of Gujarat.
a4X Connect seeks to build on the efforts of GVFL’s a4X (accelerate for excellence) platform, which was launched recently to promote the early-stage investment ecosystem by bringing closer all stakeholders in the early-stage startup ecosystem.
Kamal Bansal, Managing Director of GVFL, said, “a4X Connect is a part of our efforts to boost the startup ecosystem in Gujarat by nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit. This partnership with iCreate reflects our commitment to providing startups and young entrepreneurs with resources, mentorship, and access to potential investors. We believe this collaboration will bring immense value to both the organizations and the startup community in Gujarat.”
The a4X Connect will contribute to the growth of the startup ecosystem in multiple ways. It will bridge the gap between startups and venture capitalists by providing a platform for meaningful connections and networking opportunities. It will facilitate knowledge enhancement sessions to empower startups with the skills and insights required for fundraising, government grants, refining pitch decks, and understanding the startup ecosystem through a VC lens. It will also offer startups an opportunity to pitch their ideas in a concise and impactful manner, fostering an environment that encourages innovation and collaboration.
a4X Connect will comprise a knowledge enhancement session on critical aspects of startup growth and investment. It will be addressed by GVFL Vice President Biswadeep Das. It will also comprise an Ask Me Anything session where startups will be able to engage in open discussions with the GVFL investment team and gain valuable insights.
A highlight of the event will be the elevator pitch session, where startups will get the opportunity to deliver a 5-minute elevator pitch showcasing their unique value proposition, market potential, and growth strategy. It will also provide them an opportunity to gain visibility, receive feedback from experienced investors, and connect.
a4X (Accelerate to excellence) is an initiative of GVFL to build a thriving startup community that focuses on engaging with all seed-stage stakeholders in the startup ecosystem.
a4X is a dynamic startup ecosystem builder that aims to mitigate the risk of early-stage investing by leveraging the expertise and knowledge base of our GVFL investment team, which has decades of collective experience in venture capital.
