In PyCon India  2017, there was a community-supporter ticket for Rs.5000
and 9 people bought those tickets.

Regarding Startup, as highlighted by Satya during our discussions, we have
not seen much uptake for 50K tickets in last 3 years. We need the rework on
what startups will get from investing their precious funds( most of them
will be having funding challenges). Either we should try and reduce the
sponsorship cost for them or give them more value for their investment(
such as an opportunity to do present their story for 5 min. in main
conference hall at the end of day one, just before the last keynote)
