Inc42’s ‘The D2C Summit’ Goes Offline: 5th Edition To Decode The Playbook For Building Billion-Dollar Brands

SUMMARY

Building on the success of four virtual summits, Inc42 is excited to announce the 5th edition of The D2C Summit 2024, India's premier D2C & Modern Retail Conclave

With this year’s theme, ‘Decoding the Playbook to Build an INR 1,000 Cr Modern Retail Brand in India’, we aim to equip founders with the strategies needed to scale their businesses

Over the years, The D2C Summit has featured some of the biggest names in the ecosystem, including Aman Gupta, cofounder of boAt; Ankit Nagori, founder of Curefoods; and Nandita Sinha, CEO of Myntra as founders

For the past five years, Inc42 has been a leading voice in the D2C landscape. Recognising the immense contribution of India’s new-age consumer brands to the evolution of the retail sector, we embarked on a mission to celebrate these innovators. This journey led us to identify several emerging stars which have since become iconic brands.

Therefore, as we celebrate a decade of fuelling India’s startup ecosystem this year, we are brimming with pride looking back at the pivotal role we have played in highlighting and supporting the transformative power of India’s D2C pioneers.

But our journey is far from over! We’re just as thrilled to champion the D2C cause now as we were on day one. Whether through extensive brand coverage, in-depth ecosystem reports or fostering community via networking events and knowledge sessions, we’ve remained dedicated to our mission.

It was during the Covid-19 shutdown, a black swan event in the history of modern retail, that we felt that businesses needed new tools and guidance to face the challenges. Identifying this need, we launched our first virtual D2C summit in the thick of the pandemic.

Over the years, these summits have showcased the collective power of D2C brands to become knowledge-sharing platforms from where India’s top D2C founders and stakeholders share their success secrets with young brands.

Building on the success of four virtual summits, loved by founders and D2C experts alike, Inc42 is excited to announce the 5th edition of The D2C Summit 2024, India’s premier D2C & Modern Retail Conclave. This year marks a significant shift as the summit transitions from virtual to a live, in-person experience in Delhi NCR this August.

With this year’s theme, ‘Decoding the Playbook to Build an INR 1,000 Cr Modern Retail Brand in India’, we aim to equip founders with the strategies needed to scale their businesses in India’s booming consumer market.

Scheduled for August 8 summit will feature 30+ D2C and retail leaders across 12+ high-impact sessions. During the exclusive one-day event, 300+ attendees will benefit from expert-driven sessions and strategic discussions. They will also get the chance to network with founders, innovators and industry pioneers to forge valuable partnerships and gain the insights needed to lead India’s ecommerce revolution.

This edition of The D2C Summit is co-presented by Simpl and Emiza, powered by Venture Catalysts++, Zippee, Mobavenue and Pay10, along with associate partner Peak XV Partners.

Unveiling A New Era Of D2C Collaboration

When we envision a new-age brand, retail shelves overflowing with their products might come to mind. There’s no doubt that the next battle for retail will be fought offline, but let’s not forget the crucial role online presence plays in long-term brand building, visibility, and customer experience (CX).

In essence, brands must be not just multichannel but truly omnichannel. For this, they must learn the art of integrating CX across all platforms, ensuring a seamless customer journey that transcends silos and avoids a negative impact on experience.

This is a defining factor in modern-day retail, differentiating celebrated brands from the rest. At the D2C summit, our star-studded speaker lineup will delve into omnichannel strategies and more, empowering brands to build INR 1,000 Cr businesses, navigate changing consumer behaviour and overcome challenges and pitfalls.

But that’s not all! In a physical setting, attendees will have the opportunity to network and forge connections with the industry’s brightest minds, all while gaining practical insights and know-how for building profitable businesses.

Over the years, some of the biggest names in the ecosystem, including Aman Gupta, cofounder of boAt; Ankit Nagori, founder of Curefoods; Nandita Sinha, CEO of Myntra; and Manish Chowdhary, cofounder of WOW Skin Science, have come together to help young brands master the art of D2C.

Watch out this space for the announcement of this year’s speakers!

Who Should Attend?

We’re inviting founders and CXOs from D2C brands and modern retail and traditional retail companies. We also welcome enablers of the D2C ecosystem, such as VCs, PEs, family offices and angel investors who invest in D2C and modern retail brands.

Our goal is to unite the vibrant D2C community under one roof and foster collaboration, networking and meaningful conversations among like-minded peers who share a common goal: Propelling India’s D2C market and, in turn, India’s consumer market, to new heights.
