Xoogler.co – a unique community that has been solely formed to help ex-Google entrepreneurs to fulfill their startup ambitions – is all set to launch the first Demo Day of 2020 in Bengaluru on February 2nd. This event will be like any other startup pitch event wherein startups run by ex-Google entrepreneurs can pitch their startups or startup ideas to investors for prospective fundraising. The community had previously held the Demo Day events in the US, London and Singapore.
Xoogler.co’s investment syndicate has $1.8M+ in backing from 500+ investors to invest in each ex-Google led startup. The community’s cash coffers have further swelled, after recently raising six figure investment from Wilbur Labs.
Total 9 companies had participated in the previous Demo Day event held in November 2018, out of which 5 companies managed to raise funds. These 5 startups are as follows:
Procol – raised a funding round from Blume
Strings – Got funded by Y Combinator
Vahan.ai – raised funds from Khosla Ventures
Timepay – went to Axilor, 2400 Cr – GMV
Invitly – raised a seed round
Bengaluru’s Demo Day event is likely to receive positive response, since there is no dearth of Indian startups whose co-founders have been ex- employees of Google. This includes well-funded Indian startups like Livspace, Moglix, HealthifyMe, Dunzo and Zendrive.
Today many successful companies across the world are led by ex-Google entrepreneurs. Be it Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi or American social media giants like Instagram and Pinterest. The success of these companies justifies the existence of unique community like Xoogler.co
Xoogler.co is actually a group of Google alumni and current Googlers whose collective aim is to come together to help each other advance in fostering the growth of the global startup ecosystem. This community essentially consists of startup founders, early team members, angel investors, VCs, and mentors.
