Conquest has the tradition of producing some of the best startups in India. All 10 finalists of Conquest
2013 are successful registered ventures now. iTraveller (Runner up-Conquest 2013) raised $100K
immediately after Conquest 2013 and recently a million dollar as series-A. PosterGully (Finalist-Conquest
2012) got incubated at The Hatch. GharPay, the Conquest 2011 runner up, was funded by Sequoia Capital
just after months of starting up and is presently India’s biggest doorstep cash payment solution. Other
startups produced by Conquest include Mobile Medics (acquired by Piramal Healthcare in 2008), iViz
Security (raised $2.5 million funding in 2008, one of NASSCOM’s 'Top 4 Emerging Product Companies' & a
big name in security solutions today).

services, licenses and incubation opportunities. The resource pool for the finalists of Conquest 2015
(cloud computing credits, accounting, sales, marketing, PR etc.) has already crossed 2 crores and we
expect it to bust our previous records.

fame.With the resources and mentoring which Conquest provides we believe it that it is a perfect
