We bring to you the latest edition for the startup events to attend in this week.
The most interesting event for last week was Blockhack which is a platform to educate people about the benefits of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The event hosted speakers such as Gautam Sinha, Pankaj Jain, Aditya Dev Sood, Soaib Grewal, Arnab Kumar, Hemanth Kumar, and more who talked about latest trends in Bitcoin, Blockchain, ICOs and more. Also, Inc42’s BigSHIFT Vizag garnered a decent response from the local startup ecosystem.
With 2017 stepping towards closure, you might be reviewing the ups and downs of the year gone by. However, as they say, “Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.” So here is the rundown of events you can attend this week.
Startup Events To Attend This Week
BIGShift is a series of startup events organised by Inc42 and Amazon India across eight tier I and tier II cities of India. Having hosted BIGShift in seven cities already, Inc42 will be hosting the last edition of BIGShift in Kanpur this week.
Formerly known as the Manchester of India, Kanpur is the biggest city of Uttar Pradesh, and is the main centre of commercial and industrial activities. Over the past years, startup activity in the state has also gained impetus. For instance, in May 2017, IIT Kanpur extended $38K (INR 25 Lakh) Seed fund to rural job search portal EezyNaukari.
The event will bring together prominent startups, founders, influencers, investors and ecosystem enablers together for an engaging and stimulating discourse about how to start a business; the right time to raise funding; the challenges of team building and the much-dreaded fear of burnout. The event will also serve as a launchpad for top five startups shortlisted by Inc42 from a group of budding entrepreneurs in the Kanpur city.
