100 Open startups in India is an initiative that can really help foster proactive collaboration between start-ups and the corporate sector. This symbiotic exchange of ideas and knowledge helps companies gain from knowledge on new technologies and products, cultural refresh, exposure to new talent and innovative opportunities to collaborate. Start-ups also stand to gain from industry expertise through coaching & mentoring and leveraging opportunities for incubation of great ideas to fully funded, commercialized solutions. 3M is proud to be a founding member of the 100 Open Startups in India initiative and is keen to witness its progress in building a strong start-up ecosystem in India.

Enterprise connect is a big challenge for startups and Open Startups is providing an excellent platform to solve this. It was great being part of the Bangalore event. We got instant access to a lot of relevant businesses and are looking forward to work closely with Open Startups initiative.
Rohit Agarwal, Ikarus Technology
100 openstartups are actually helping the emerging start-ups in various geographies to understand what big companies are indeed interested. This is indeed an excellent platform for both big companies as well as small entrepreneurs who aspires to see a big vision.
Chedarampet Karthikeyan, Dow Chemicals
We talked for two days with at least 20 large companies, which would usually have taken at least a year to get the lead and the access to this type of company, and are probably going to do a pilot with at least 10 of them.
Isabela Botelho, Pin People
People with experience and with power to decide had been reunited with a clever methodology in this event. Congratulations, Wenovate! The Movement 100 Open Startups is one of the best opportunities that we from StoryMax accessed to do business, receive feedback, mentoring and to initiate partnerships with other startups. I highly recommend it for entrepreneurs looking for support and for entrepreneurs and investors seeking good opportunities!

Great event, congratulations to the entire team. We made excellent contacts, partners, customers and friends. We will return every year. We went to this was as a startup, in the next, maybe, we will go as a connected company, taking advantage of every opportunity that this ecosystem provided us. Thank you!!!

Thank you and congratulations on the event last week. The feedback that I received was extremely useful for startups - one of the best events of the ecosystem that I have participated.

I’d like to thank the invitation for the event. As I mentioned on that day, I've never seen an event in Brazil as organized and qualified for more advanced talks with investors as this one. I was very pleased and you can certainly count on me for whatever you need.

I thank on behalf of the ColOff® Industrial team for this that was one of the best events that we participated!
Eliézer Machado Dias, CEO & CO-founder, ColOff® Industrial
As CEO of the startup CONFIRM8, the purpose of this event was extremely important to help healing the most chronic pain of any startup, the access to the market. Having an idea and putting it into practice is a very difficult task, in which many give up along the way as they cannot be noticed by strategic players. And this event creates not only an enabling environment to generate opportunities with high chances of success, but mainly, it provides a unique experience of relationship that was missing to entrepreneurs. That was a perfect match that created a constructive energy able to overcome major obstacles. Let's always be fearless! Big hug! Cheers!
Otávio Yamanaka, CEO, CONFIRM8
high level event. It opened doors for start-ups to test their products, listening to the opinion of big companies, investors and it was an opportunity to have a greater media exposure. We learn in these days of event which would normally take one year. We had opportunities to foster business, partnerships and raise funds from investors. Congratulations to the organizers for providing this sensational experience to start-ups!
