StartupKnockdown+ is an initiative by TravHQ in association with TTF to highlight the emerging travel technologies across various cities in India. The previous event had successfully put promising startups like Fxk00art and Confirmtkt in the spotlight and gave many others the chance to get inputs from industry experts to fine tune their product and gain new opportunities. It will be hosted first at Kolkata from July 8-10, thereafter following Hyderabad from July 15-17, 2016.The Kolkata and Hyderabad sessions have an esteemed line-up of judges and mentors. They have been placed as vanguards in investments in the travel industry and are at the forefront in driving the trend in the hospitality sector. Their proficiency in business incubation & entrepreneurship ecosystem development has given them an edge over others which help them to evaluate the product well. Travel StartupKnockDown+ would not only let the expert panel judge the pitching start-ups but also engage with them before the event during multiple workshops.To facilitate this, the team has some interesting partners on-board. They include various leaders in the start-up space like Calcutta Angels, 10,000 start-ups- a NASSCOM initiative, Hyderabad Angels, Amadeus, Indian Angel Network. This battle would put a plethora of opportunities on the table for the participating start-ups. These leading players would back the winning start-up. This platform would catapult the network build-up and help them get media recognition to partners like Entrepreneur.com.Sanjiv Agarwal, Chairman, Fairfest Media Ltd (organisers of TTF), who is also a Chartered Member of the TiE, remarked, “Building on the successful debut of Travel StartupKnockDown alongside the TechForum at the OTM in Mumbai, we decided to launch the shows within the TTFs in several cities across the country.
