What Is BIGShift?
BIGSHift by Inc42 is a series of events spread across 8 Tier II cities of India. Each BigShift event will bring together a curated set of 40-60 startup founders, investors, influencers and ecosystem enablers from the city. 5 early stage startups will get a chance to showcase themselves & get noticed as part of the Startup Showcase.
To take up a break from intense panels and keynote sessions, a breather roasting entrepreneurship discussing on the contemporary trend of starting up, just like a decade back everyone wanted a job in an IT firm and 2 decades back a government job.
Failure is still a taboo topic all over the world, but we’re working to change that one city at a time. Rather than focus on the positive, seemingly unobtainable success stories, this one-of-a-kind event focuses on the not to be discussed in public big mistakes made by entrepreneurs.
