Elevation Connect 2023
Our annual investor portfolio conference
K Ganesh, Sana Oberoi
We were thrilled to be back with Elevation Connect, the fifth edition of our annual investor portfolio conference designed to help our founders build long term relationships with a curated set of investors from across the world.
We have grown bigger and better with each new edition of Elevation Connect. However, the extent of investor interest from various parts of the globe exceeded even our expectations and led to 40 of our companies meeting 180+ investors, more than doubling that of the last edition and resulting in 600+ meaningful engagements spread across two weeks. Our founders took investors through their business and growth plans through these 1-on-1 in-depth discussions, leaving them deeply impressed and excited about what they saw getting built.
The participating investors represented a cross-section across stages and included growth investors, sovereigns, pension funds, sector specific thematic investors from North Americas, Middle East, East & Southeast Asia and India.
30% of the investors were new to India and are keen to back disruptors and category defining founders in the region.
It is heartening to see the increasing conviction of the global investor community in India’s growth story and the potential for founders focused on building purpose-oriented companies with a compelling value proposition to continue to attract increasing pools of capital.
