“Don’t build links. Build relationships.” – Rand Fishkin, Moz
Be it 20 years back or 20 years ahead, the world of entrepreneurs cannot deny the importance of building relationships in their journey to success.
While in the traditional times, word of mouth was the major source of gaining popularity, the today’s entrepreneurs have a number of ways to showcase their products and ideas.
Startup events play a major role here, where the startups not only get a like-minded group to discuss their ideas, but also a chance to gain from the experience of other established entrepreneurs, mentors and innovators.
This week’s list of startup events has been curated along the same lines.
