Ramblings with the IQ team about the India opportunity. While most cynics always look backwards while evaluating India, and while most investors get it wrong stretching India to Western income levels, we try to look at it from the lens of an entrepreneur who is 'creating' the ‘market.’
Seeking startup wisdom? Look no further! India Quotient is on a mission to empower founders with knowledge 🚀. Dive into a treasure trove of invaluable insights, captivating success stories, and game-changing tips, tailored exclusively for visionary entrepreneurs.
When the world was locked down due to the COVID-19 crisis, VCs and seasoned founders did a great job with podcasts and Zoom calls to help founders in distress. Yet one category was a bit ignored - associates and analysts in VC firms who are the budding VCs of tomorrow.
We had been wanting to do this program for a while, and the first COVID lockdown in 2020 was the perfect time to initiate these lectures.
Anti-Dilution is a bi-annual learning program for budding VC associates and analysts.
It's been 3 years since we have been actively running this program, and we are proud owners of a 3-year-old VC community.
We have opened up some of the videos for public consumption.

At IndiaQuotient, we understand that entrepreneurship can be a long, sometimes tricky journey. With all the overload of content and advice out there today, we believe that now is the right time to restart our Bootcamp program - to provide founders with the relevant support, guidance, and resources they need to succeed.
Our Bootcamp is geared towards achieving early product-market fit — through collaborative innovation and dynamic learning with a focus on understanding customer needs, validating assumptions, identifying market fit opportunities and rapidly iterating through a few early product build-outs.

We owe all our success to the people working tirelessly behind the scenes of our portfolio companies, which is why this year we started 'IndiaQuotient 30 Under 30' - an initiative where we proudly acknowledge and celebrate exceptional talent from our portfolio companies.
From a pool of nearly 100 outstanding, high-quality candidates, a select few made it to the 'IndiaQuotient 30 Under 30' winners' list. Their contribution and commitment to their organizations have played a significant role in our collective success.
Getting to meet and interact with these candidates was an absolute honour. We can't wait to organize the 2024 edition!
Presenting: The exceptional achievers who made it to the 'IndiaQuotient 30 Under 30' 2023 list ⬇️
We also had the pleasure of hosting these champions at our annual event held in Bangalore 😄
Congratulations to all the winners! Keep thriving. We wish you all the best for your future 🙌
