We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners and sponsors who supported us in making the event a great success
Last week, we concluded our maiden fintech conference – the Inc42 Fintech Summit 2022. Held on July 1 and 2, the two-day virtual event brought together more than 60 dignitaries from India’s fintech ecosystem to decode the sector’s trillion-dollar market opportunity.
Through candid panel discussions, insightful masterclasses and in-depth keynote sessions, our speakers delved deep into the nitty-gritty of the country’s fintech ecosystem and explored the hottest trends and topics, ranging from fintechs’ lofty valuations and regulatory challenges to future opportunities.
From decoding fintech’s true market opportunity to exploring how investors view the funding slowdown, the Inc42 Fintech Summit gave its attendees a comprehensive view of what is to come for India’s fintech sector.
The sessions were a huge hit among our 1,000+ attendees. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that we made one of the sessions public on Twitter!
That’s not all. Those who attended the summit had the golden opportunity to engage and interact with industry stalwarts, including Aarin Capital Partners TV Mohandas Pai, Zerodha’s Nithin Kamath, SALT’s Shinjini Kumar and many more.
As a result, more than 11K messages were exchanged between speakers and participants, over 410 online meetings were set up and more than 25K session views were recorded during the two-day event.
But none of this would have been possible without the support of our sponsors and enablers who helped us pull off one of India’s premier fintech conferences and enabled us to make it a grand success.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank them all!
