About the Event:

Social is kickstarting its investor series where they will be inviting speakers to take on conversations around the themes of fundraising, trends from the ecosystem, the do’s and don’ts, the rule of thumb perspectives across Pre-seed to Growth and Venture with successful exits.

Presenting the first Speaker in the series, Chiranjeev Anand. Chiranjeevi is an AVP at Lead Angels, a seed stage Angel Network with over 130 Members and having chapters across Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Hyderabad.

About Chiranjeev Anand: 

Chiranjeevi first crossed paths with the entrepreneurial ecosystem during his under-graduation days working with young Founders to fine-tune their ideas, and his penchant for Startups has remained ever since. He went on to explore the Corporate World with TataMotors, working on new project launches and after spending an exciting couple of years with them, decided to dive back into the Startup ecosystem. He joined a VC-backed Startup in the automobile space working with them on Operations and Strategy and post a year long stint, transitioned to the early-stage investment ecosystem with LeadAngels. At LeadAngels, Chiranjeev leads the Network’s Investments and expansion efforts and works with Startups and their Founders on their business and growth plans, as well as further fundraise.

About Lead Angels:

Lead Angels is India’s first privately owned Angel Network founded by a team of three originally from IIT Bombay in 2014 with the goal of improving early stage investment outcomes. The team accomplishes this by providing professional assistance to Investor-members in company evaluation and the portfolio companies in their operations. The Members are successful entrepreneurs and professionals from diverse sectors who want to be Investors and Mentors to high performing startups. They are supported by a team of experienced executives who are passionate about their work and a network of relationships across the Indian startup ecosystem.

Based on these strong foundations of a process-centric investment research and post-investment support, our portfolio performance of 22 companies has been remarkable with multiple companies raising subsequent rounds of capital with quantum growth in valuations and an above industry average survival rate. The 130+ Member Network has grown rapidly to a portfolio of 26 companies in the last three years with a number of stellar successes such as TinMen, SuprDaily and Planet Super Heroes to name a few.

About Social Works:

Social is a space that blends the best of the office and the café. Combining work and play, it’s an urban hangout designed to take you offline while still keeping you connected. Social is a collaborative workspace, a hub for artists and innovators.

The Fireside Chat is for 45 minutes with a 20 minute Q&A. A 2-3 hour event at best, with pre and post session networking offline. Nature of conversation covers personal and professional journey, in an attempt to share the human side of the journey- in a non watered down, brutal, honest and straightforward mannerism.
