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.

The Digital Success Summit was successfully hosted in Kolkata. It facilitated individuals and companies to learn from experienced digital experts about the most structured and effective method of launching, executing, and managing digital assets.

SAP Startup Social also hosted a successful event on its themes of ‘Scaling up through effective synergies with the enterprise world’ and ‘Design-led innovation for the world’.

Also, the Rajasthan government organised the find Your investor (FYI) programme at iStart Nest in Jaipur in association with Kotak Mahindra Bank (Kotak). The initiative is aimed at educating startups on the nuances of raising capital and banking.

The FYI programme, which saw participation from more than 100 startups and 10 investors, doubled up as a platform for new-age entrepreneurs to interact with investors one on one, enabling them to meet the right investors.

After an exciting week, we are here to help you mark your calendars for the week ahead!

Inc42 Open Office Hours

In the past few years of Inc42’s journey in Indian startup ecosystem, we have been working with countless entrepreneurs, investors, and storymakers who not only contributed to building the Indian startup ecosystem but have also enabled and inspired others to take the road less taken.

Even though we’ve always tried to take everyone along with us in this journey of being the go-to resource pool on the Indian startup ecosystem, we’ve not been able to work with many storymakers due to various reasons. To this extent, Inc42 has decided that we will have Open Office Hours one Saturday a month to enable anyone and everyone who haven’t been able to get in touch with us to come and meet our team members.

We have been hosting successful editions of Open Office Hours at Inc42 and are back with the fourth edition for August. Shortlisted applicants will be intimated about the meetings. Inc42 reserves the rights to accept or deny any meeting requests.

Date: August 18, 2018
