Startup Events This Week: Mixer By Inc42, SAARC Conference And More

Last week, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) hosted two events. First was the third edition of its National Public Procurement Conclave (NPCC), which was in collaboration with Government e-Marketplace (GeM). The event provided a platform for Indian buyers, sellers and other stalwarts of the retail industry to interact with over 400 Public Procurement Managers. These managers belong to various government departments and public sector undertaking (PSU) across different states.

Secondly, CCI also hosted a Manufacturing Forum in partnership with the
Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DPIIT) to bring policymakers, corporate leaders, CxOs, academia, and opinion makers on one platform. The forum allowed stakeholders in the sector to share innovative solutions for manufacturing development and build a concrete structure for the national roadmap.

As we step into a new week, here’s a list of new and upcoming events:

Mixer By Inc42

Mixer is Inc42’s signature #NoAgenda events, which allows important minds of the Indian startup ecosystem to come together and network. With the Mixer, Inc42 aims to bring together enablers and contributors to the Indian startup ecosystem, hoping for interesting collaborations and innovations in the future. Mixer is a relaxed evening to know each other better and catch up on what’s happening around them.

The platform helps to give perspective to the founders on where the ecosystem is headed and is also a great way to keep a check on the pulse of startups and innovation. No appointments, and no bookings, Mixer by Inc42 is a platform that allows the founders to catch up with people they have been trying to get in touch with over great food and cocktails. The event is supported by annual partners—NetApp, AWS, Paytm, Times Internet and HSBC—the event will be held on December 9.
