The Big Pitch is a program organized by RBL Bank annually to select startups that would go on to receive some special benefits in improving their knowledge, exposure and also funding options through faster routes than if they had made independent efforts. According to a report in VCCircle, this year RBL Bank has just announced the 10 winning startups after a competition was held to make the selection.
Those who competed made their presentations on their ideas and the future prospects for their venture. The program has Indian Angel Network, Amity Capital and Matrix Partners joining RBL as funding partners.
FullTank Technologies, LittlePixi, SocioGraph Solutions, Team Rentezee, Tnine, GalaxyCard, ilove9months, NDAX, Loktra, Veda Labs are the 10 startups that have been selected.
The 10 selected startups will be eligible for benefits such as free consultations with Grant Thornton and Luthra & Luthra, free cloud credits from Digital Ocean, ledger software license from India Filings valid for a year, CRM package from Salezshark valid for 3 months, alpha Cards from F6S with deals worth $1 million and preferred pricing on APIs by RBL Bank
That sounds quite impressive since the knowledge gains from the professional bodies will really help many of these entrepreneurs, particularly if they have come through only technical stream in terms of their education.
