The Apex Awards session was kicked off by a fire-side chat with
Kiran Reddy, CEO of SPI Group who recounted lessons from the journey of building the "Sathyam Cinemas" Experience.
The APEX'19 Award Winners were:
Its been 10 years since we've been associated with Venture Intelligence. We feel proud of each other.
"When I wanted to build a investment platform under EB5 Services, Arun didn't pitch Venture Intelligence. Instead he pitched me saying, "What ever strategy you need, I am happy to help you with my network. Thats the type of person Arun is, and the same goes for Venture Intelligence team. For that, I am very grateful."
"My previous experience with PE-VC events is that fund managers listed as speakers will be the only ones participating. APEX is unique in that it gets so many top level PE-VC executives to participate actively (beyond just speaking from stage) and be available to network after the formal proceedings."
Thanks to Arun and the Venture Intelligence team for putting together a great Panel. Overall the event was very well managed.
Thank you for having us be a part of the APEX 2019. It was a pleasure being there and participating in the event. I look forward to our continued association and DMD Advocates participating in more such events organized by Venture Intelligence.
