Entrepreneurship in India is no breaking news. This space has been around for a long time. There have been tremendous effort from the industry to help nurture these vibrant young brigade and these have been ably demonstrated by various entrepreneurial platforms and events which have been introduced over the years. For those who want to network, meet the investors, mentors, potential co-founders, they usually make sure they are present in these events- maybe from TiE or by other associations and companies.
However, these events and set ups have become almost of the same kind – using the same speakers, same themes and more often than not same venues. Does it really have a value add in the lives of the new, aspiring or budding start-ups? Perhaps not!
In line with this, TiE has introduced, for the first time a theme based TiECON Delhi, wherein the theme is the poster boy and not the speaker. TiEcon this year will primarily be about the disruptive themes that are certainly going to take the startup ecosystem by storm. With the most relevant theme of “Abki Baar Disruption” the conference will touch upon various technological aspects such as SMAC, IoT, Design Thinking, e-commerce and many more causing disruption across industries. The conference will witness a host of industry experts who don a many roles of angel investor, mentor, influencer in the startup ecosystem, along with the startups representatives.
Navyug Mohnot – Co-Chair, TiEcon Delhi 2014, “This year TiECON Delhi chapter will be unique from its previous editions. We have weaved some innovative sessions that are very carefully designed to solve serious issues that an entrepreneur faces. We are going to focus on aspects like mentorship, networking, finding a cofounder and many other important aspects.”
Given the huge surge in entrepreneurial activity, especially in early stage startups, the positive mood in the country, the continued and relentless maturing of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, this year TieCon is going to be bigger than all previous years. The event will see more than 1000 people gather to dissect and discuss “disruption” that’s happening around. The outcome of such a wholesome event can only be even more innovation and disruption. And that’s good news for India.”
A problem solving conference!
A conference is a much more powerful platform than just exchanging cards and pitching your business. Each person has an idea that, if discovered by right set of people, can be a beautiful business opportunity and hence, TiECON 2014 is designed with an aim to provide a channelized approach to each participant to meet the right person, network in right manner and finally have an answer or direction to his or her goal. Some of the innovative ideas developed are:
