August 05, 2022

Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), in association with Headstart Network Foundation, is conducting next week a free workshop for HNIs (high net-worth individuals) aspiring to be angel investors as an additional asset.

The August 13 event, to be led by experienced venture capitalists and successful investors, will be held at KSUM’s Integrated Startup Complex in Kalamassery, 20 km north of the city.

The sessions, beginning noon, will be led by seasoned investor Nidhi Saraf, who is co-founder & CEO of advisory fund-raising firm Key Ventures which has expertise in raising Pre-Series A to Series D capital for early and growth-stage startups.

Permitting only invitees, prospective participants can apply through https://bit.ly/HNI2022. The workshop, which aims to answer various questions and doubts of prospective angel investors, can help build a culture around startup investments in Kerala, organisers said.

The event is conducted as part of a larger conference ‘Startup Saturday – Funding & Investments’, where 250 founders, entrepreneurs and ecosystem enablers will come together to know more about funding and investments. The participants of the HNI workshop will get free entry to the full-day conference as well. For details: https://bit.ly/SSKAUG22

Noting that a well-informed and sensitised angel investor alone can judge and curate one’s investments to get better yield, organizers said the August 13 workshop seeks to boost Kerala’s startup ecosystem to grow to new heights.

Headstart is a not-for-profit organization with 15 years of supporting early-stage entrepreneurs and startups from across the country. It works with government organizations such as Startup India, StartupTN, Kerala Startup Mission, Niti Ayog and BIF, besides other corporate organizations like AWS and Meta to enable startup ecosystems.

KSUM is the nodal agency of the Government of Kerala for entrepreneurship development and incubation activities in the state.
