Following their win at IIT-Bombay’s Eureka, Disha Khandelwal and Bikes24x7 have once again performed wonderfully at the Unicorn Pitches India event by winning 2nd place!
Disha, who is a second-year student at SCMC, is an integral part of the Bikes24x7 team. Disha applied for theUnicorn Pitches India competition, where companies pitch their ideas, and are then evaluated upon their pitch. Bikes24x7 was announced as one of the Top 10 pitches, and were scheduled to present their pitch in July.
Bikes24x7 were assigned a mentor who was to guide the group to ensure that they deliver their best pitch possible within three minutes. Their mentor was very impressed by the idea, processes, and pitch. The panel of judges had international investors from the USA, Singapore, and India. Bikes24x7 received an excellent average score of 8.53.
When asked for advice she’d like to give to budding entrepreneurs and innovators, Disha recommends to “just go for it.” She believes that start-ups require risks, open-mindedness, and the ability to learn things along the way. She says, “Take the first step, no matter how small it is. If you don’t take any steps, you’ll stay in the same spot dreaming.”
SCMC is proud of Disha and Bikes24x7’s accomplishment at the Unicorn Pitches India event. We hope all the young entrepreneurs dream, persevere and achieve!
