As founders, the need to engage and understand other entrepreneurs and their journeys is intrinsic to the process of building a startup. In fact, each month, this need comes to the fore at the Founders Meetup By Inc42.
And the Founders Meetup by Inc42 is coming back for yet another edition. Presenting with HDFC Bank, this edition of the meetup will host over 50 early-stage entrepreneurs to come down and network with each other.
This time around, Rahul Singh founder and CEO of The Beer Cafe, one of the most popular beer chains in India. With 40 locations within a short span of few years, Singh has seen the brand grow into one of the most-awarded alco-beverage service brands in the country.
Singh will be taking the early-stage founders through his analytical approach to building a niche brand in the food and beverages industry. The interactive session will also go into how entrepreneurs can create a formidable brand identity in a crowded market.
The eighth edition last month — sponsored by NetApp and AWS, with CoWrks and Qdesk as community partners — was one of the most insightful interactions.
Chaayos founder and CEO Nitin Saluja was the speaker in the previous edition, interacting with a group of 40 early-stage founders in the middle of a busy work week. Not only was it a learning experience for the attendees, but it was also a chance to wind down with drinks and food.
Saluja said that a big part of the journey is doing whatever it takes — even if it meant opening at 8 am, and closing as late as 11 pm. He also delved into how Chaayos brought investors on board by letting the business numbers speak, instead of his own pitch to investors.
And in the ninth edition of the meetup, attendees can expect similar insights and enthusiasm. The venue will be WeWork, Sector 15, Gurugram and the main event is scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm sharp!
This time around, you can apply for a free slot so hurry before the guest list gets blocked.
The upcoming edition of Founders Meetup is presented by Inc42 & HDFC Bank and is supported by Inc42’s annual sponsors, NetApp, AWS and Times Internet.
As usual, there will be much to build on — friendships, partnerships and maybe even new ventures. So, apply for a slot, and save the date. Who knows? It may just turn out to be an important day in your startup’s journey.
