Last week we introduced our new weekly series on startup events to attend this week, and we received an amazing feedback from the community. This has further strengthened our zeal to curate the best events for our readers. Keeping this in mind, this week, we are once again presenting some of the events that startup enthusiasts must look to attend.
While the media and everyone else are buzzing about the forthcoming GES 2017 – a summit organised by NITI Aayog with the women entrepreneur first theme- few got lucky with the tickets and few didn’t. And who didn’t, here are a couple of more events which you can look to attend.
Startup Events To Attend This Week
The 8th edition of Global Entrepreneurship Summit aka GES 2017 essentially aims to support women entrepreneurs and foster economic growth globally. The summit, which has been organised annually since 2010 by the government of the United States of America, will be hosted in Hyderabad this year in partnership with think tank NITI Aayog.
Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana state, is home to the India offices of a couple of US-based firms. In addition to a robust startup ecosystem, the city has premier academic institutions, top-notch talent, and supportive government policies in place. Furthermore, Hyderabad has a growing network of investors who are now open to investing in startups and is gradually rising to the level of startups hubs like Delhi/NCR and Bengaluru.
Also, this year the summit will primarily focus on sectors such as energy and infrastructure, healthcare and life sciences, financial technology and digital economy and media and entertainment.
