“The startup ecosystem on the unicorn front is witnessing devaluations, while 18+ startups have shut shops in the last 5 months, the industry is geared up for the all new era of cockroach startups. The prime reason for this unrest happens to be in the roots of the ecosystem and that’s why we are launching ‘The Misfits’ to enable young entrepreneurs and early stage startups get equipped and take care of the three biggest challenges i.e. knowledge, hiring and funding via our new age media platform and event series,” said Amit Pandey, COO, Inc42.
In a short span of one month, the Misfits team has already managed to build a strong core team of 100+ ‘Campus Misfits’ and reach across 1000s of colleges and the early stage startup market.
