Lufthansa Start-up Expo’s largest edition to be held in Pragati Maidan

The Start-up Expo, India’s largest ecosystem for start-up success, is all set for its third powerful edition on 6 October 2018 at hall number 7, ITPO, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Co-created by Lufthansa India and the Delhi-NCR chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), the Expo will see the convergence of more than 20,000 delegates from 175 cities across India, and is expected to include over 100 investors, 500 recognized business experts, along with 500 innovative start-up exhibitors.

An extraordinary initiative that brings together the collaborative power of India, the Expo offers new entrepreneurs all that they need to succeed, all together, all in one place and free of cost. It provides entrepreneurs a high visibility transformative platform where they can showcase their ventures, meet investors, engage with government organizations, attend knowledge sessions, receive one-on-one mentoring, network with business experts, explore partnership opportunities, find potential customers and interact with all the stakeholders that can help them scale new heights.

“Lufthansa is deeply committed to partnering the success of Indian business, and for nearly a decade we have been collaborating with the experts at TiE to nurture young entrepreneurs in India,” said Wolfgang Will, Senior Director, South Asia, Lufthansa Group Airlines. “Start-Up Expo is yet another dimension of Lufthansa’s #SayYesToTheWorld campaign, which opens up the world to these young dreamers and explorers seeking new opportunities,” he added.

The Startup Expo will also feature the Grand Finale of the ‘Elevator Pitch’ contest, launched in August by Lufthansa. The extraordinary contest offers budding entrepreneurs an opportunity to make a 3-minute business pitch to win a sponsored seat in a business program at Cambridge University, a Lufthansa Business Class ticket to Europe as well as coveted TiE Delhi-NCR mentorship. Registered participants are currently undergoing two rounds of shortlisting by the best business minds, prior to the announcement of the top four contestants for the Grand Finale round. At Start-up Expo 2018, the finalists will make a live elevator pitch to eminent jury members as they vie for the Grand Prize.

The Expo has grown exponentially each year to become a nationwide movement, attracting a growing stream of partners and start-ups. It is supported by Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), StartupIndia and Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI), and over 100 partners pan India – including industry associations, government agencies, support organizations, investors, venture capitalists, accelerators, corporates, embassies, business experts and mentors.

“While nurturing entrepreneurship is a core mission at TiE, Lufthansa’s strong commitment to enabling the success of budding entrepreneurs in India has been truly commendable,” said Geetika Dayal, Executive Director, TiE Delhi-NCR. “This year’s Start-Up Expo is even bigger offering immense opportunities to entrepreneurs to network with some of the finest brains in the country for investments and collaboration. It is also more inclusive in terms of sectors, gender, geography and demographics.”

As a truly inclusive event, the Startup Expo is open to public from 09:00 a.m. till 06:00 p.m. and is a great chance to interact with and learn about the exciting projects and ventures happening in India. More details on the Start-up Expo can be found on www.lufthansastartupexpo.in
