Rajat Mehta, Chairman of JIIF, further expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming event, stating, “As an Incubator and Angel Network, we are dedicated to consistently supporting entrepreneurs. This commitment underscores our role in guiding startups and enabling them to succeed in a competitive market. By offering mentorship, funding, and strategic support, we aim to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.”

Mayur Jain, Chairman of JITO New Delhi, contends, “As the capital, Delhi’s geographical advantage will draw investors globally, creating a platform to boost India’s fast-growing startup ecosystem. With interactions planned with top policymakers, bureaucrats, and diplomats, we aim to showcase the country’s strategic tech advancements to our forward-thinking investors.”
