The ‘bizzcamp’ cohort was organised to mentor startups raise funds. The cohort also saw tremendous engagement from more than 20 investors keen to invest between Rs 50 lakh – Rs 1 crore in the participating startups to accelerate their growth by the end-December 2020.
Elaborating on the camp, Easy to Pitch founder & CEO Priyanka Madnani said: “To make it easy for incubators, accelerators, and start-ups, the ‘bizzcamp’ cohort focused on preparing the founders for the demo day and provided special mentoring sessions for their pitch grooming.” Buoyed by the surge in the startup ecosystem, Easy to Pitch has decided to work as a long-term advisor to maximize the chances of fundraising.
Founded by Priyanka Madnani and Nikhil Parmar, Easy to pitch is based on the idea to make the ‘founders pitch ready’ and help them reduce the chances of being rejected. Going forward, the company is planning to integrate automated tools and processes to make it easy for the founders to create their pitch presentations.
Having established itself in Gurgaon and Mumbai, it is now looking to expand its footprints to tier II and tier III cities.
