Get Ready Startups: Inc42 To Host BIGShift Vizag On 9th Dec
BIGShift by Inc42 is a series of events spread across 8 Tier I & Tier II cities of India. Having hosted BIGShift in four Indian cities, Inc42 is now taking BIGShift to Vizag. The event will bring together prominent startups, founders, influencers, investors, and ecosystem enablers together for an engaging and stimulating discourse about how to start, the right time to raise funding, challenges of team building and the much-dreaded fear of burnout.
For the uninitiated, BIGShift is a one-of-a-kind series of localised startup events spread across eight Indian cities, including Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneshwar, Nagpur, Kolkata, Vizag, Kanpur and Indore. Through BIGShift, Amazon India and Inc42 are looking to support the startup ecosystem that is building up in cities beyond Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. The aim is to help bridge the gap that currently exists between the ecosystems in tier I and tier II cities by making the essential resources available to fledgeling startups in these geographies.
