The Superbrands’ SuperStartUps award organizers have been approached by a number of VC Funds and Angel groups interested in ‘participating’ in the program.
“When VCs and Funds came to know that these winners will be chosen by online netizens across 25 cities in India, a number of them have expressed their intention to meet the winners for talks” said Shivjeet Kullar, Council Leader “so we are now able to guarantee if you win an Award you will sit across the table with a VC interested in you!”
To recap – for over 20 years Superbrands has been the definitive honour for top brands across the world. From Australia to Argentina, Germany to Ghana and UAE to USA in over 50 countries over the globe Superbrands has been the ‘Oscar’ of the business world. In India too it has been an accolade that the best companies have sought, won, and used in their advertising and communication. Superbrands aims to work with the burgeoning startup ecosystem by launching SuperStartUps for India.
The SuperStartUp Council in India led by legendary brand builder turned online entrepreneur, Shivjeet Kullar who has over 100 national and international awards to his credit, also features names like Deep Kalra – founder Make My Trip, Sanjiv Bikchandani – the poster boy of the Internet world, Sid Talwar – founder Lightbox turned VC, Prahalad Kakkar – India’s top Ad Film Maker, Valerie Pinto – CEO Weber Shandwick – and Anmol Dar – founder Superbrands India; to name a few.
“As entry to the program is free” says Program Manager Ankur Kayesth “a start up should look at this as a possible ROI– since you only ‘invest’ if you are a winner!”
