This is another shit by an IIT so only received a funding. A close study clearly says so much of bias for startups created by IITian & VC’s only investing in them. Non-IITians are not at all considered in anyway, but onething for 100% sure Non-IITian will raise someday and will outperform under the nose of vc. India is in the full of chaos with lies & overhypes articles. Honest & Non-IITians startups are not supported by vc’s. Newscorp you must raise your voice and ask vc’s this question openly with integrity.

Why so much of discrimination in startup’s investments?
