What Is It?

Got a startup and want to take it up the success ladder? Well, then, the Y Combinator India Startup Conference is what you can sign up for. Described as one of the top three accelerators in the world, Y Combinator {an American seed accelerator} is making way to India for the first time, as part of its 11-country world tour. Collaborating with the Delhi-based co-working space, Innov8 {which was recently inducted into YC's summer batch}, their pit stops include Delhi and Bangalore. All the entrepreneurs out there, here's your chance to hobnob with YC partners, meet fellow founders and get some useful tips from experts themselves.

Who Is It For?

Whether it's to gain some insight into the makings of a successful startup or to get some gyan on how you can improve your venture, this one's for the startup founders in the city.

Why Should I Go For It?

The daylong event includes an Office Hour session which gives each selected startup 25 minutes of exclusive one-on-one time with YC partners, Tim Brady and Adora Cheung. Get set for some practical advice and handy tips from the experts, all to take your startup to the next level. Want to know what it's really like to start a startup? Sign up for the Fireside Chat with YC partners, joined by YC alum, ClearTax and Razorpay. Also part of the session will be Aditya Agarwalla {co-founder of Kisan Network}, Kunal Shah {founder of Freecharge} and Vaibhav Agarwal {co-founder of Inc42}. Ending on a fun note, look out for the Happy Hours session, where you'll get to network with the group over some snacks and drinks.
