HST is an annual event organized by Catalyst that aims to bring together stakeholders of Indian startup ecosystem. HST 2017 had participation from large number of startup enthusiasts, investors, industry experts and government officials who deliberated on a range of startups related issues. 15 handpicked startups out of over 100 applications pitched to a jury and five selected teams were offered incubation support at Catalyst.

The 2nd edition of HST will have a much larger scale and outreach. In addition to curated panel discussions on varied topics, HST this year will feature ‘MVP Boot-Camp’ for Idea stage startups, ‘Investors’ Den’ for startups looking to raise seed funds, ‘Meet a Mentor’ for one-to-one Q&A with tech-business experts, and ‘tête-à-tête’ with faculty for aspiring entrepreneurs seeking technical guidance
