On Saturday, April 22, we celebrated our Investors’ Day in the Mansion Oval Hall of the Hyatt Regency, New Delhi with over 150 investors, LPs, industry leaders, startup founders and partners from the ecosystem in attendance.
An action-packed day saw several of our Challengineer-founders showcasing their technology innovations to an enthralled audience: Manoj Dawane of VTION, Satyam Darmora of Wiom, Arun Vinayak of Exponent Energy, Mudit Dandwate of Dozee, Dhruv Verma of Thriwe, Sneh Vaswani with his cute little Miko robot, Tithi Tewari and Gautam Tewari of Trezi, Manoj Shinde with his Magic Mirror from OrboAI, Anter Virk of SubCom, Satish Mugulavalli of RuleZero.

And the icing on the cake: Prof. Mohanbir Singh Sawhney with an insightful world view of the potential and power of India’s technological capabilities.
Sunil Goyal’s detailed and transparent performance update on the three funds reminded the attending investors (in the room and in different time zones over Zoom) of the distance we have covered and the road ahead; as well as how their unhesitant support was powering entrepreneurs we have been nurturing.

The day may have begun with the theme of ‘Next is Now’. But by the end of the sessions, we had almost every investor asking “Next is when?”
And so, we move forward, recharged by your trust.
Thank you for being with us now and always, and for making the Investors’ Day successful! We look forward to meeting you again at the next Investors’ Day as well.
