Around 18 companies bagged funding from the investors, with DIPL getting the biggest cheque, according to Agarwal.

The platform also included Nilesh Trivedi, a venture capital professional who has investing and operating experience across early-stage, growth-stage and Fortune-50 companies.

The startups that participated in the platform work in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, financial technology, consumer products, business-to-business and business-to-customer.
