The theme of this year’s (2016) Start - Up Conclave is: “Industry-Startup Connect: To accelerate India’s economic growth driven by Start-ups”
With a vision to realize India’s transition from a developing to a developed nation, there is an urgent need to empower our Start-ups to grow at an accelerated pace, so that they become an effective instrument for making this transformation fast and seamless. This growth should be organic, powered by innovation and design and an active support from the Industry and the Government. A well-carved out mechanism for industry and start-ups to interact and understand each other’s needs, and then leverage the benefits of each other’s strength will not only make the business environment more stimulating, but will also act as a major booster for the development and the growth of Indian economy. The Start-up conclave 2016 aims to provide a platform for real time match making between industry and start-ups, and explore possibilities for start-ups to partner and seek support from industry in the form of funding, mentoring and procurement.
The format of the conference will be such that it will evoke good amount of excitement and enthusiasm among all the stakeholders who are looking for inputs on one or more topics related to policy formulation, new market opportunities, investment and mentorship opportunities, IPR and recognition of business excellence driven by innovation and design.
Start-ups participating in the conclave will get a chance to get recognized by their investors, companies or incubators and all big collaborations between Start-ups and Industry to be identified, awarded and celebrated during the grand occasion.
An exposition of Start Ups will be organized on the side-lines of the Conclave to provide an opportunity to showcase their innovative products and services to a large audience and network with them for forging tie-ups.
The conference would include session (workshop) on IPR protection which is a very important and relevant topic to Technology Start-ups. With the surge in the number of new start-ups getting created annually and with the potential for more in the future, it is essential for all the new and existing start-ups to legally protect their innovation and technologies. This will create a healthy competitive environment in the start-up ecosystem and also reduce stealing of ideas and technologies in the long run.
Well-known and leading names from the industry, academia, and entrepreneurship fraternity will be invited to the conclave as keynote speakers, who will share their vision, talk about their experience, and provide their suggestions for building successful enterprises. The leaders will also stress on better and sustainable engagement between industry and start-ups, and focus light on the dynamics of such kind of collaborations which benefit industry as well as start-ups in the long run.
The conclave will feature case studies of innovation-driven start-ups in India and build on existing knowledge base on how start-ups are linked to the bigger corporate players in their business value chain. These case studies will also showcase successful collaborations which have led to win-win for both start-ups and Industry.
The conclave is primarily targeted to attract innovative start-ups in India who have aspirations for rapid scale-up and a strong case for Industry connect. Other than Start-ups the conference will aim to attract companies who have actively participated in engaging with Indian Start-ups as a part of their winning business strategy. In this context players like industry professionals, government officials, policy makers, entrepreneurs, students, faculty members, consultants, and all other stakeholders who are associated directly or indirectly with innovation and start-up development will be part of this conclave. The participant profile will include:
