Startup Events To Attend This Week: Inc42 Open Office Hours, Investor Fridays And More

Startup Events To Attend This Week: Inc42 Open Office Hours, Investor Fridays And More

A Curated List Of Startup Events [June 18-24, 2018]

Here is Inc42’s latest edition of startup events coming up this week.

But before we dive into what’s in store for this week, let’s catch up on the success stories of the past week.

The Retail Technology Conclave (ReTechCon) 2018 saw the release of several products and a report by RAI and ValueFirst entitled ‘Eyeing Consumer Intelligence in Retail’, which helps in understanding the state of e-retail in the Indian marketing context.

The audience was treated to many more insights on cutting-edge technologies such as the Internet of Things, bots and artificial intelligence, and relevant topics such as Customer Engagement in a Digital-first World, the transformation of a point of sale into point of experience, and winning the Gen Z.

While the past week was a bit slow on the events front, this week, there are several events lined up for you. It’s time to mark your calendars.

Inc42 Open Office Hours

In the journey of Inc42, it has been a great privilege to have worked with countless entrepreneurs, investors, and storymakers who not only contributed to building the Indian startup ecosystem but also enabled and inspired others to take the road less taken.

However, there have also been times when we have not been able to work with many other storymakers due to many reasons. To this extent, Inc42 has decided that we will have Open Office Hours one Saturday a month to enable anyone and everyone who hasn’t been able to get in touch with us to come and meet our team members.

Therefore, after our first successful open office day in May, we are back with the second edition of Open Office Hours at Inc42. Shortlisted applicants will be intimated about the meetings. Inc42 reserves the rights to accept or deny any meeting requests.

Who Should Attend: Anyone who is interested in pitching to Inc42 Media.
