This is Inc42’s latest edition of what startup events are coming up in this week.
This week, the upcoming events will discuss some of the most important issues in the Indian startup ecosystem.
A leading discussion on the fintech industry and its state in the Indian startup ecosystem will ensue this week. So, a detailed discussion on how to nurture it and how to help new innovations in this particular segment is but only obvious.
Then, there are a lot of state interventions to boost the startup ecosystem in the country. In the recent times, India has witnessed several state governments actively working towards making a vibrant startup ecosystem in the states. For instance, on one hand, Rajasthan government has successfully conducted hackathons and host of several other events to encourage young innovators. On the other, Karnataka government is bringing out a slew of policies to boost the startup ecosystem in the state.
Taking the lead from state developments is also Chhattisgarh government that is hosting a summit to boost the startup ecosystem in the state and to discuss what support the government can provide to motivate entrepreneurs in the state.
Keeping up with our consistent efforts, to bridge the gap between Indian 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!
