Panel Discussion : The Startup Bubble in India

Considering the of startup boom in India in the past 4 years, the funding process has become comparatively lenient. The total investment in Indian startups was around $5 billion in 2014 and $9 billion and is growing insanely. There is one or the other startup in the news which has raised massive funding, very few are there which have been bootstrapped. Aren’t startups chasing anything(GMVs, future growth,etc) but profit ? Is it the inexperience of young entrepreneurs leading to mismanagement of the funding given to them ? Is the bubble going to burst because of absurd decision taken by heavily funded startups ? Take part in the discussion with eminent personalities of the startup ecosystem.
