After the two successful editions of our this new weekly series on startup events to attend this week, we are here with our latest edition for the startup events to attend in this week.
The most happening event of the last week was GES 2017. During the three day event several startups presented their pitches in front of PM Narendra Modi. While the PM promoted Make In India and highlighted the improved ease of doing business in India, the guest of honour Ivanka Trump praised the growing opportunities for women entrepreneurs in the country.
