Poyni Bhatt
CEO, Society for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (SINE), IIT Bombay

"Investor community in India has grown over a period of time. Yet, there remains a significant gap at an early stage capital for tech-startups. The model of 100X.VC to write cheques for early stage startups with simplified investment agreement and handholding them for larger capital is absolutely encouraging. The leadership vision has the potential to hugely impact execution by entrepreneurs with agility and quality. SINE is looking forward to be a partner in this journey of 100X.VC."
