    We got valuable insight and feedback for our pitch, and were able to gather a lot of information from the workshops held during the residential bootcamp in Bangalore. Post the program, we came out with an improved vision and a refined product pitch.

    Zone startup team has great network and could really help connect startups with industry leaders and corporate partners. As first time entrepreneurs many of us did not know this, hardly knew how or whom to reach out to.I was fortunate to get connected to nearly 8 banks and fintech experts,but I felt others in the group were not able to make use of Zone startup's full potential.
