The SuperStartUps 2019 was a big success with very insightful and educational conversations happening around the hall. The hall was filled with enthusiasm and energy both by the speakers and the audience which was like the icing on the cake. This year’s awards anticipated healthy relationships between India and overseas countries primarily Singapore and Japan. We are proud to showcase that the third year of SSU witnessed more partners and a much higher engagement that the previous years. Many of the startups which were tested and voted for, were well established along with a few bootstrapped ones. With each successive year, our detailed processes and strategies highlight the startup ecosystem in a more comprehensive way. We look forward to hosting the SuperStartUp Awards 2020 with a bigger platform and audience.
