Team YourNest assembled in the Mansion Oval Hall of the Hyatt Regency, New Delhi, on April 22 for the Investors’ Day. It was an occasion to update our investors, founders and business associates, about the distance we have covered since 2011 when YourNest Venture Capital began its journey.
More than 150 investors, LPs, industry leaders, startup founders and partners from the ecosystem attended the event to support us in our mission of making India a leading player in the DeepTech startup space.
We hosted a Founders’ Retreat from 16-18 March at the ITC Rajputana, Jaipur, where our Challengineer-founders and the YourNest Team came together to bond, build and brief each other on all that is happening around us in the startup world. The three days were filled with incredibly thought-provoking addresses, several heart-warming TED Talks- inspired sessions by the entrepreneurs themselves, and lots of fun-filled activities combined with deep learning.
At a team offsite between 17-19 February in Rishikesh, the YourNest family discovered previously unknown facets and strengths of each other and of themselves.
The team bonded together beautifully while participating in activities such as white-water rafting to ‘rescuing’ injured colleagues as part of an exercise that required a marshalling of several leadership traits including empathy, efficiency and experience. Overall, it was an extraordinary experience that will not be forgotten in a hurry!
We had seen many interesting conversations take place at the YourNest Ecosystem Mixers in Bangalore and New Delhi over the last two months. At yet another mixer on the June 10 in San Francisco, several of our founders, advisors, associates and investors attended the event.
The Bangalore Mixer was followed by a fun-filled evening in New Delhi on May 2. Several of our founders, advisors, associates and some investors attended the mixer along with their spouses as old bonds were reinforced and new friendships cemented.
With life returning to normal, several members of the YourNest team spent an evening with our Bangalore-based founders along with their spouses on March 29. After a two-year hiatus, it was wonderful meeting everyone face-to-face in the real world.
