Propel(x) Insights
Did you know that investing in startups is very very risky and many of the investee companies will fail. You can lose your entire invested capital in some cases. Therefore you should only invest amounts that you are willing to lose entirely.

    "I think every entrepreneur faces rejection all the time. If there is something that they can leverage; tools to increase their efficiency, they must do so. The entrepreneur that says, 'I will do it myself' just because, you know, 'I'm going to show the world' well, more power to you."

    Propel(x)'s co-founder, Swati C. shares her unique experience at the rare intersection of entrepreneurship, investment banking and venture capital roles in a freewheeling chat with Gopi Rangan, General Partner - Sure Ventures.
    Public Opinion
    In our last newsletter, we asked 'What will a single bitcoin be worth in 2030?'
    30% of the people who took the poll think that the value of bitcoin will crash and go below USD 10,000. In the earlier days of the poll, the red and blue pie were at a tie but then gradually the share of blue pie went down. As of today, the bitcoin is priced at ~USD 55,000. Stay tuned!
