BANGALORE, INDIA—Signal Hill India was pleased to sponsor the sixth annual TechSparks event, which took place in Bengalore, India between Oct.29-31, 2015. Klaas Oskam, Managing Director and leader of Signal Hill India, gave a presentation entitled “Mid-Stage Fundraising: A Reality Check” and also spoke on the “Tech M&As in India” discussion panel.

TechSparks, which began in 2010, brings together India’s most promising start-ups and entrepreneurs. This year TechSparks hosted more than 11,000 start-ups and more than 50 speakers. In addition to Mr. Oskam, speakers included investors and venture capitalists from premier firms like Sequoia Capital and executives from high-profile Indian companies, including Flipkart.

“It’s time for startups to demonstrate their strength by showing that it’s not just capital that helps them grow, but also what they use it for to execute their plans and sell the product in the market,” said Mr. Oskam. More details about his remarks can be found at this link:
