Panel Discussion: Start Up Ecosystem In India

The growth trajectory of the Indian startup ecosystem has been formidable. India is third, only to the US and the UK, with a staggering number (approx. 50,000) of start ups to date. As start-up landscape looks even more robust and credible, investor confidence has grown. While the tech sector leads the way, the Fintech vertical is at the top too, and yet, 'Social' has been a realm for some start-ups that leverage technology to deliver innovative and inclusive solutions for social causes. The Government of India has also launched the Startup India Action Plan, with view to facilitating start ups.

With India now on the global map, are we looking at another great boom? What are the key fundamentals around profitability, how can we achieve economies of scale. What have some of the market leaders done differently?

This panel comprising young entrepreneurs will provide insights on the current ecosystem, how they identify growth opportunities & sustainable business models while providing answers to these questions.
