TiE Rajasthan is hosting the 6th edition of it’s flagship event Smash Up on Fri, 16th & Sat, 17th September 2022 at Jaipur.
The startup ecosystem in India has witnessed a sea change over the last decade. This has fostered a vibrant startup ecosystem buzzing with new technologies and innovation, creating employment, and celebrating entrepreneurship, making India the 3rd largest startup ecosystem in the world with 95 unicorns (till March 2022).
Almost a decade ago, TiE Rajasthan came up with a unique platform “TiE Smash Up” for startups to pitch their ideas to many active investors under one roof and also to learn from the journey of successful founders in an informal yet high energy interactive Unconference environment.
