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 successful events of the past week.
Inc42 successfully hosted its third session of Open Office Hours on Saturday (July 21) and it was a great experience for the team to hear to meet our readers and startups enthusiasts.
Even as we listened to several startups that pitched their ideas to us, it was great to catch up with our regular readers and get insights into what new we can bring to them. Such interactions also go a long way in boosting our morale and encouraging us to keep bringing to you more indepth, well-researched, value-added stories on the Indian startup ecosystem. After Saturday’s Open Office Hours, we’re all the more charged up about our mission.
While the last week was a little dull, we are here to help you mark your calendars for the week ahead!
