The hugely popular India Fund Fest that has had four successful editions since 2016 has launched the first ever “North East India Fund Fest”, to give budding entrepreneurs of the North East an opportunity to get on to a path of accelerated funding. The platform has been customized and adapted for the startups of the North East and is a one of its kind opportunities for the entrepreneurs of the region. The finale will be held on 28th February 2020 at the Taj Guwahati. Top 20 startups selected from thousands of applications, will pitch in a TV show format, for spot deals of an estimated minimum total value of INR 5 Crores in the day.

After the resounding success of the first four editions of the India Fund Fest, the hugely popular platform has launched the inaugural North East India Fund Fest. This will give budding entrepreneurs in the region from diverse industries an opportunity to get on to a path of accelerated funding. The finale will be held on 28th February 2020 at the Taj Guwahati. It is the first time that the platform has launched a regional event. The event is being organized in partnership with TIE Guwahati. The platform is owned by Natio Cultus Consultancy Pvt Ltd. – Hyderabad. Registrations opened from 24th January for the inaugural edition.


This is a business funding program that has become hugely popular because of its distraction free format, as there is no carnival like atmosphere, no speeches of sponsors, no panel discussions, no stalls to sell products and services and no crowds of unrelated people and needless networking – only entrepreneurs and the matched investors. In the previous four national editions of the event, entrepreneurs from across India and 47 other countries registered and participated.

For the inaugural North East India Fund Fest 20 entrepreneurs will be selected through a rigorous filtering process out of the 1000+ applications expected. The selection of these startups will be made by an eminent jury and through a proprietary ‘Investor Readiness Report’ process, ensuring the companies are thoroughly vetted. The entrepreneurs will be from a wide range of industries. These finalists will be pitching in front of 8-10 Master Investors to get deals needed to take their businesses to the next level.

The event will be recorded to be telecast as a web TV series on the North East India Fund Fest Youtube channel.
