About STARup 2016

STARup 2016


Date : 17 September 2016 | Venue : IIT POWAI, MUMBAI, India

Our new startup summit STARup is an attempt to bring the best entrepreneurs, investors and corporate representatives together for some serious business. We plan to disrupt the Indian startup ecosystem by introducing new concepts like startup showcase, vertical focussed panel discussions, vertical focussed pitches and investor pitch sessions. One of the main agendas of this Summit is to increase corporate involvement in Indian startup ecosystem to facilitate more investments, connections, collaborations and acquisitions in near future. And we don't stop this year and become even bigger next year.

Sectors

Financial Technology

Financial Technology startups across India are expanding financial inclusion by leveraging technology. According to a TechSci report, the mobile wallet market in India will touch $6.6 billion by 2020, backed by crucial factors like the increasing usage of smartphones, a rapidly expanding mobile internet user base, government focus, and favourable demographics - 50 percent of Indian smartphone users are aged between 18 and 30 years.

Healthcare Technology

Healthcare tech-startups are the new big thing today considering the huge potential in the sector. Offline healthcare system has mostly been disconnected with the digital world. Indian healthcare ventures have recently grown but it hasn't been easy for them. They've faced their fair share of challenges like another start-up, more so being in a sector which traditionally has shied away from technology.

Emerging Technology

Recently Gartner Inc. highlighted the top technology trends and drivers that will be strategic for Indian organizations. These include Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics, Mobility Solutions, Cloud Computing, Social Media and Computing, Machine to Machine (M2M), Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD), Personal Cloud, The Internet of Things (IoT), Collaboration Technologies, 3D Printing and many other emerging technologies. Yes, its time to propel India to the next level.

Platforms & Aggregators

Indian market is foreseeing market domination for startups, especially in the online retailing and service industry in 2016. Moreover, it is projected that there will be over 11,500 startups by 2020 and that will change the way markets are working today in India. The new age India today is ready to walk on the path- follow your hearts. Moreover, with the environment in India for starting own venture has become conducive and a great deal of entrepreneurship opportunity India presents, more and more people are now prepared to take the leap.
