The Indian startup ecosystem has seen a lot of growth in the years gone by. Last year alone, there has been an addition of over 1,300 new startups in the ecosystem, taking the total number of tech startups in the country to over 8K, according to NASSCOM.
With the new decade, come new expectations and despite the number of unique funded startups going down in 2019, there is great optimism among startup founders, investors and enablers.
As per DataLabs by Inc42’s Indian Tech Startup Funding Report 2019 revealed that the total funding witnessed by Indian startups since 2014 to the end of the calendar year of 2019, stood at $58 Bn, with 2020 continuing this journey of maturity.
We understand that this phase will come with its share of troubles and hard yards for the startup ecosystem. But for once, the ecosystem can take a break from the grind and network and connect with each other on a relaxing evening — at least in Mumbai.
After all, Inc42 is bringing the most happening tech party, Pulse42, to Mumbai, the financial capital of the country.Apply Now
Mumbai, Get Ready To Unwind With Pulse42
An evening of full of fun, food, drinks, music and exciting conversations can make a lot of difference to an entrepreneur, and give them the energy needed to take on all the challenges that come their way. And that’s the idea behind Pulse42.
The startup and investor community and entrepreneurs get some much-needed breather as well as the opportunity to network with peers without appointments.
Pulse42 is not only our way to get the investor community and startups to connect but it’s also about getting conversations going among these stakeholders with a no-agenda approach.
Supported by ekincare and our sponsors—Times Internet, AWS, Paytm, WebEngage and NetApp Excellerator—the party to will be hosted February 27, 2020 in Estella, Juhu, Mumbai.
We started Pulse42 as a closed-door event for the attendees, but last year, we opened it up for public participation and it took the thrill of the event to a whole new level. Adding to that, the response we received made us wonder whether we should have made the move sooner.
After doing 10 editions of the event and engaging over 1K founders, investors and other enablers, we are now heading to Mumbai for the 12th edition.Apply Now
