India is one of the largest startup ecosystems in the world with over 49K startups expected to be active in the country by the end of the year, as per DataLabs by Inc42 estimates. With so many dependents in the ecosystem, there is no dearth of events and activities for startups, founders and investors. But what sets Inc42 apart is that besides being one of the most authoritative voices in the Indian startup ecosystem, we have strived to make matchmaking and networking fun and engaging for everyone involved.
Over the past five-plus years, Inc42 has brought the ecosystem under one roof for events of all scales and for businesses across the startup lifecycles – from early-stage founders to growth-stage startups and unicorns.
But even in this hyperconnected world, entrepreneurs and investors need a little break to unwind and take a breather from the frenetic action. Sometimes, all founders need is a break from the boardroom and a chance to unwind with their peers over drinks, music and exciting conversations. That’s why Inc42 is bringing Pulse42, The Pulse of Tech, back to the financial capital Mumbai.
Gather around insightful conversations, scrumptious food and cocktails and thumping music at the 12th edition of Pulse42 in Mumbai on October 16.Block Your Spot Now!
Tapping Into The Pulse of Tech
Pulse42 has always been an invite-only event, but with the unprecedented growth of the ecosystem, there is a great opportunity to bring more founders under the spotlight. With this understanding, Inc42 opened the doors of Pulse42 to more people with open applications before the final selection. The applications were piloted for Pulse42 in May this year in Bengaluru, and we saw great success as founders from all corners of the city gathered to chill out and mingle with their peers.
Just like in the past, the last Pulse42 edition in Bengaluru was well-received by the elite guest list which included India’s top entrepreneurs and leading investors. Besides the usual talks and conversations around new startups and ideas, Pulse42 was also about building relationships with key stakeholders in the ecosystem. Over the years, it has witnessed the likes of Lathika Pai, country head for startups at Microsoft, Yulu cofounder Amit Gupta, Gaurav Munjal of Unacademy, and many others bringing their experience to make it a memorable evening for the startup ecosystem.
A No-Holds-Barred Tech Party
As usual, there’s no dress code and no appointments at Pulse42. It’s an all-out party for the tech startup ecosystem, unlike any other. Come October 16, the no-agenda Pulse42 will give startups, founders and investors the right opportunity for some up-close-and-personal interaction, whether for laughs or for serious business. Over 100 tech and startup enthusiasts are expected to make it for Pulse42 in Mumbai and tap into India’s rich tech ecosystem.
Applications to attend Pulse42 are live now. Early bird applicants get a discounted price of INR 3999 per invite, while applications after the introductory offer period are priced at INR 4999 per invite.
