This is Inc42’s latest edition of what startup events are coming up in the next week.
This week, as the Holi festival just ended, businesses have been stained with the colours of growth and prosperity as well.
There was an influx of news coming in about startups that have successfully raised their funding rounds. Several startups, especially in the healthcare and the fintech sectors, have had a renewed life after they raised their Seed funding. Several others are on their way to expanding their operations after the investments were infused in them.
It is in the midst of this rapidly gaining pace of momentum that the industry needs to take caution, so that repetitions and saturation may be avoided with ease.
It is often observed that, when a domain is at the peak of blooming, several ‘me too’ startups bring the industry to a saturation point.
To do away with this scenario, industry entrepreneurs and investors must strive for uniqueness. A business idea always stems out of an egalitarian motive. The more egalitarian the businesses are, the more profitable they tend to be.
So, a sound knowledge of investment deals and branding exercises are requisite for a successful business. Such knowledge is not a standalone entity but rather a product of interactions, engagements and collaborations.
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 the Inc42 team that you can look forward to for participation this week!
