Pulse42, Mumbai 

Over the past five-plus years, Inc42 has brought the ecosystem under one roof for events of all scales and for businesses across the startup lifecycles – from early-stage founders to growth-stage startups and unicorns.

But even in this hyperconnected world, entrepreneurs and investors need a little break to unwind and take a breather from the frenetic action. Sometimes, all founders need is a break from the boardroom and a chance to unwind with their peers over drinks, music and exciting conversations. That’s why Inc42 is bringing Pulse42, The Pulse of Tech, back to the financial capital Mumbai.

Some of the notable past attendees of Pulse42 include founder and partner of 100x.VC, Sanjay Mehta; cofounder and managing Partner of Blume Ventures, Karthik Reddy; Managing Director of Sequoia India, Rajan Anandan; and founder of PeopleGroup, Anupam Mittal among others.
