This is Inc42’s latest edition of what startup events are coming up in the next week.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s India trip is over. There is good news for the startups as the Indian government and Canadian government agreed to open markets for each other’s startup ecosystem.
The world is watching India and today, the cliched knowledge of India being the largest democracy in the world, is gradually coming with the understanding of India being the third largest startup ecosystem as well.
This week, the word that will dominate the startup events is ‘disruption’.
The telescopic view is no longer just to flourish business in India, but its also to break grounds and turn India into a hub of disruptors.
Therefore, in the upcoming week’s events, entrepreneurs, investors and business enthusiasts will not only see discussion forums on how to drive a revenue growth and create a sustainable business, but also two other topics will predominate the forums – one on how policies should be framed to be startup-friendly so that more startups may find new grounds for breakthrough innovations and two, to discover more startups and work out immersive techniques to penetrate deeper into Indian geographies.
In the recently concluded ET GBS 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated two vital points for execution, to draw out stricter actions against fraudsters and to bring more women within the fold of Indian startup ecosystem.
With all the optimism riding high, it is a good time for the Indian market to grow.
As much as growing a business is important for every businessman, it is equally important to listen to the stalwarts and to be a part of opinion making forums. Inc42 provides the know-how of where to go for these events, who to contact to register, what you can expect from the events and more importantly, which events are relevant for different businesses.
Keeping up with our consistent efforts, to bridge the gap between startup ecosystem and policy makers along with industry stalwarts, here are some of the startup events curated by Inc42 team that you can look forward to for participation this week!
