Speaking on the development, Arpit Agarwal, Principal, Blume Ventures said, “I've been in touch with NIT Trichy E-Cell for three years. I've seen that through successive batches they have worked very hard to bring together a set of high quality startups to the platform. As a result the events become very useful to participate as an investor. For the students on campus, presence of investors and high quality startups is inspiring. Ventura also allows budding entrepreneurs to interact closely with mentors and validate their ideas. I think it gives NIT Trichy entrepreneurs a great boost and I wish them all the very best.”
