Swati Bhargava, CashKaro to represent India at Blackbox Connect - Female Founders Edition 2015

Swati Bhargava, Co-Founder of CashKaro.com, India’s largest and fastest growing Cashback and Coupons site has being selected and will be representing India at the Blackbox Connect - Female Founders Edition 2015- powered by Google for Entrepreneurs program from April 27 - May 8, 2015 in  Silicon Valley, California.

CashKaro was launched in April 2013. It was founded by Swati Bhargava and Rohan Bhargava, a young entrepreneur couple who left their lucrative Investment Banking jobs in London to start the Cashback business in the UK (Pouring Pounds) and have now expanded it to India. Both Swati and Rohan are alumni of The London School of Economics.

CashKaro claims to be the only externally funded Cashback site in India. It successfully raised $750,000 funding in August 2013 by a group of angel investors in the UK from companies like Paypal, Gumtree, Investec and more.

Blackbox Connect brings founders from top companies around the world to take part in a two-week program where they collaborate with entrepreneurs, investors, experts and executives from the Silicon Valley community.

The Female Founders Edition is the first program by Blackbox that will be focusing on female founders. Women led start-ups have been selected from around the world including countries like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Lebanon, Poland, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States for this exclusive program.

The India Chapter was launched in partnership with NASSCOM’s 10,000 Start-ups and invited participations early this year.10, 000 Start-ups is a NASSCOM initiative supported by Google for Entrepreneurs, and supports Black Box program in India.

On being selected, SwatiBhargava, Co-Founder, CashKaro.com, said, “It gives me great pride to represent India at such a powerful international stage. It’s an honour to be a part of one of the most exciting platforms for the start-up community where global born start-ups are empowered and exposed to Silicon Valley resources. I’ve always wanted to spend time in the Valley & learn from the vast experience of companies & investors there. Blackbox Connect is a great opportunity to do just that and I’m really excited about it! The programme also paves the way for the next generation of female entrepreneurs in the tech space and I’m sure will be a valuable experience.”

Rajat Tandon, Senior Director, NASSCOM 10,000 Startups, commented, “We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the team at CashKaro.com for being selected in the Blackbox Connect Female Founders Edition. It is truly exciting to see a member of the 10,000 start-ups be chosen for such a prestigious program and showcase their talent on a global stage. At 10,000 start-ups, we feel that it is imperative to evangelize more women led start-ups in the country and platforms like these will go a long way to inspire more women to start-up like CashKaro.com.”
