World Startup Expo, the three day mega event concluded successfully on 23 November 2016 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre. It was a massive gathering of 300 startup exhibitors, thousands of entrepreneurs, leading technology providers, business investors for funding startups, thought leaders, banks, policy makers, influencers and host of national and international speakers.


An ideal venue for polishing ideas and innovations with a business oriented motive. Obviously, profit is what we aimed for and there were millions of compelling and unique ideas under the sky which blossomed with the right platform.


Educational startups are playing a key role in delivering smart education across the nooks and corners of the world. Our effort had been far more rewarding these days for these startups with the increased availability of internet and smart phones.


Health-tech startups have emerged more in numbers with the upswing of technology. The discovery of new medicines, new treatment techniques, wearable devices etc. have face-lifted the way heath care services have performed, especially the home care segment.


With more than 300 versatile & innovative exhibitors ranging from more than 15 sectors, WSE, the Asia's best corwdfunding event was the perfect launch pad for prospective startups stepping into the world of success and business.


We were backed by iconic sponsors who are committed to lend support for seed stage ideas and to assure good publicity and exposure for participants.


The standard at which we were able to pursue the event was only because of the support from our like minded partners who are motivated and experienced in bringing ideas to spotlight.
