We bring to you the latest edition of the startup events to attend in the first week of the new year 2018.
The last days of the year 2017 brought together the memories of the entire year and with it, we closed the most exciting event of last week, the Techfest Mumbai where the attendees got a chance to interact with Saudi Arabia’s first Robot citizen, ‘Sophia’.
As Alex Morritt says, “New Year – a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”
So, on the first day of 2018, we bring forth another set of events to attend this week. In case you have not yet updated your business calendar yet, here are a few exciting startup events to attend.
Startup Events To Attend This Week
Wharton India Startup Challenge
Established in 1996, Wharton India Economic Forum (WIEF) is an annual conference hosted by the students at Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. It is a global business forum focussed on understanding and engaging with India’s startup landscape. It has historically attracted a host of speakers ranging from President APJ Abdul Kalam to industrialists such as Mukesh Ambani, to investors such as George Soros.
Hosted by the WIEF, the annual Wharton India Startup Challenge (WISC) is aimed at promoting entrepreneurship in the country. One of the objectives of the contest is to provide support to aspiring entrepreneurs by offering them a global platform to showcase their grand ideas and raise funding from leading investors.
