Even though we have been warned that ‘winter is coming’ for Indian startup fundings, there has been no dearth of work and efforts to keep the wheels moving. Moreover, it is not unusual to expect the startup ecosystem to face up to challenges with grit and energy, as it has done plenty of times in the past.
While we are busy channeling our year-end energies to bring new ideas to life in 2020, we are sure that startups too are laying down new targets for themselves. If your 2020 goals seem too daunting, don’t worry — start off the new year with a tech party to get primed for all the challenges.
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 needs 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 most happening tech party in India, to Bengaluru, India’s startup capital to kick off the new year in style!
2020’s Tech-Party Without Agenda
Pulse42 is not only our way to get the investor community and startups to connect during an evening full of good music, food and cocktails, but it’s also about getting conversations going among these stakeholders with a no-agenda approach.
For 2020, Pulse42 is all about bringing ‘The Pulse of Tech’ outside monotonous meeting rooms in India’s tech capital, Bengaluru. Supported by Kaizzen and ekincare and our sponsors—Times Internet, AWS, Paytm, HSBC and NetApp Excellerator—the party to bid adieu to the decade-gone-by is on January 23, 2020 at The Bier Library, Koramangala, Bengaluru.Apply Now
For the longest time, Pulse42 had been a closed-door event for the attendees, but last year, when we brought it to public applications, the action got to yet another level of thrill. But with the ever-growing community and after doing 10 editions of Pulse42 and engaging over 1000+ founders, investors and ecosystem enablers, it was time to break out of stealth mode and give more people a chance to experience the same.
While most of us have a lot of targets to meet and projects to finish, Pulse42 comes as a welcome relief and a breather from the frenetic startup life.
At Pulse42, you won’t find predetermined speaker lists, old-fashioned agendas or formal introductions with suit-clad executives and investors. Come in your finest party attire, and hang out with your peers in this amazing no-holds-barred tech party where churn rates are all about your conversations and there’s absolutely no pressure to exit.
To keep conversations flowing, Pulse42 will be held at a mesmeric venue, with scrumptious food and cocktails, and there will be plenty of time to pitch your ideas and have an open discussion with the community.
Don’t Let FOMO Get The Best Of You
As with every Inc42 event over the past six years, Pulse42 will see the most impressive curated guest-list for a startup meet ever, with some superlative names in tech, headlining the night.
This is the place where relationships are forged, and startups get funded. Pulse42 has seen partnerships bloom like never before, just like it happened for Unacademy in 2016.
We’re expecting over 100 techsters to attend this scintillating evening. And that’s the ultimate who’s who of the Indian startup ecosystem – past editions have witnessed luminaries such as Ajith Mohan Karimpana, founder and CEO, Furlenco; Amit Gupta, cofounder and CEO, Yulu.bike; Ashutosh Sharma, India Head – Investments and M&A, Naspers India; Rahul Chowdhari, Managing Partner, Stellaris VP and more!
Pulse42 is all about disrupting what you expect from a typical tech meetup; it turns your idea of tech meetups on its head. The only thing we ask is you chat, network and connect with like-minded people. Bring your best ideas and give wings to your startup dreams at Pulse42.
Applications to attend Pulse42 are live now. Early bird applicants get a discounted price of INR 1999 per invite, while applications after the introductory offer period are priced at INR 3999 per invite.Apply Now
