In less than a decade, India has witnessed a substantial increase in the number of startups and entrepreneurs. From having a 19 year old entrepreneur, who went on to create almost half a billion dollar company in less than 3 years, to having multi-billion dollar companies like Flipkart, Snapdeal and paytm started by young college graduates. The momentum of Startups and entrepreneurs is now visible in almost every corner of our country.

With such an enormous increase in the number of startups and entrepreneurs in our country, there has also been a substantial increase in number of Startup communities on various networking platform. While all of these communities promise to help entrepreneurs only a fraction of them are actually doing it.

In the circle of communities that are actually working towards helping entrepreneurs, one such community is Startup Delhi, founded and curated by Abhishek Kumar Gupta.

“Less than a year back, we started the community known as Startup Delhi. At that time we had no resources, no influence and frankly very less experience to offer. To describe us best, back then we were just a Facebook group with a vision to connect entrepreneurs with other meaningful people” says Abhishek. Abhishek left his job in December 2015 and started building this community. He embraces enriching experience of 3+ years working with Media, Fintech, Edtech startup.

Startup Delhi is a platform for entrepreneurs to hire suitable candidate for a job, find meaningful partner and most importantly its network where lot of active member of the community take the helm and help each other out. Startup Delhi also organises regular meetups, almost every week, where some of the most amazing speakers share their experiences.

“Meetups are an integral element of our community. The reason being more than entrepreneurs meetups actually help aspiring entrepreneurs to come forward and learn the lesser known secrets and hustle of an entrepreneur.”

Abhishek also shared that the journey of Startup Delhi wasn’t as easy as it looks like.

“When we wanted to do our first community meetup, we got a reply from less than 10% of people to whom we actually dropped a mail. And even when we started this group, we had to personally request the people whom we believed had the experience to personally comment on the relevant post” He further added that “Today after an year, we have more than 30k members in our community, of which we closely work with hundreds of them. During the period of an year, we have built ourselves resources, a bit of an influence and off-course some experience which we gladly share with others.”

Till date Startup Delhi has helped various startups in raising funds and has also helped various entrepreneurs in finding perfect co-founder for their entrepreneurial venture through Co-founder match making.

Besides helping entrepreneurs, Startup Delhi is actively used by many college students and professionals who are looking for internship or change in Job.
On questioning Abhishek about his future plans with Startup Delhi, He quoted and said that “I believe that big things are never planned. You just progress into it with your hard work and dedication. With Startup Delhi we will continue to help fellow entrepreneurs in various part of their venture.”

While it’s no secret that doing a Startup is not an easy job if one is actually doing it. Seriously, we are glad to have communities like Startup Delhi which are coming forward and helping entrepreneurs.
