Entrepreneurs and investors attend various conferences and events to network, pitch their business ideas, and raise capital to survive and prosper. The World Startup Convention (WSC) is regarded as one of these conferences’ most prominent and renowned events. However, behind the glitz and glamour of the WSC lies a dark side that came into the picture in a recent event that happened on 24 March 2023.
The World Startup Convention 2023 promised to be a pioneering event for budding entrepreneurs to network, learn, and pitch to investors. The event’s online promises didn’t match reality.
Travel, lodging, and meals cost many conferencegoers a lot. The return was a waste of time and money. The organizers failed to deliver, making the event a scam. The conference advertised seminars by famous entrepreneurs. Attendees were dissatisfied because no such sessions were held. Startups were supposed to pitch investors, yet no investors were there.
According to WSC, the event will be originally inaugurated by Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari. Pushkar Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, is listed as attending the event as well.
Attendees complained about the poor facilities and unorganized schedule. Attendees were bewildered by the lack of guidance. This catastrophe has led to many complaints against the organizers, and the police are now engaged. The World Startup Convention 2023 attendees were furious.
Feedback from Conference attendees
Attending events, especially those with large sums of money, requires great diligence. Avoid scams like this by researching the organizers and events. In conclusion, the World Startup Convention 2023 was a dismal failure for startups that paid a lot to participate. The organizers let attendees down, wasting their time and money. Aspiring entrepreneurs should be wary of scams at such gatherings.
