Run by a team of travel, music and sports fans, Eventraveler is a platform that will help you plan your trip abroad and book events. Once booked, you’re able to track the event on the platform.

This means that if there are changes to the event, such as new headline acts announced at a music festival, you’ll know about it.



PixelTrain is all about creating visual content that sparks a conversation between the brand and the target market. A quick look at their website and you’ll see that they know their stuff when it comes to photography.

They count big brands in their list of collaborators, including Levi’s and the Hard Rock Cafe.


GoPaisa want to revolutionise the way that Indian’s shop by offering a range of ecommerce stores and cashback when you buy. Amazon, Ebay and Flipkart are among the stores taking part.

These startups will be joined by Yagerbomb Media and SWITCH.
