CEO or investor, business owner, blogger or film maker, newbie or veteran, the internet applies to us all. Whoever you maybe, if you are passionate about the internet business and want to explore its existence, application and future, India Internet Day is the place you should be this April.
2016 changed the Indian startup community. When investments fell through and resources were limited, the crucial nature of sustainable businesses dawned on investors. They began to seek disruptive and irreplaceable ideas to invest in.
The rules of the startup game have changed and are constantly evolving at a dramatic pace.
#iDay 2017 seeks to travel beyond the mundane and commonplace and help you develop truly original ideas and solutions.
Bhavish Aggarwal, Co-Founder & CEO of Ola Cabs, Kalyan Krishnamurthy, COO of Flipkart, Satya Raghavan Head of Content & Entertainment YouTube India and 26 other experienced startup do-ists will share their influential and seasoned insights and ideas at the event.
Here is a look-see at the agenda set for the event:
What constitutes India’s Internet Industry? How widespread is it? What expansion is foreseen for 2020, and what impact will it have on our GDP?
For aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners looking at branching out – what sectors will India’s Internet Industry consume and what employment will come of it?
This discussion will cover trends yet to come and potential that you can tap into.
Data is set to become even more cheap and accessible in India as time progresses, and as a result, content consumption will explode. This promises an audience reach like never before, allowing entrepreneurs unbarred access.
How will entrepreneurs innovate with this new-formed freedom? What businesses will rise out of this enablement?
When demonetization was enforced, business of all types took a severe beating. Surprisingly, e-commerce businesses also suffered as cash was the mode of payment in 70% of e-commerce orders.
For the first time in Indian history, something other than social networks and connectivity can cause millions of people to adopt a new way of life. Cashless India is becoming more of reality each day, creating new possibilities for players in the startup ecosystem.
Building a sustainable e-commerce business is a challenge and a continuing experiment. Successful business models aren’t easy to replicate. Some successful business models focus on establishing differentiators and gating entry, creating an exclusivity.
Participate in India Internet Day and contribute to these discussions, network with entrepreneurs and enterprising people like yourself and re-envision the part you will play in India’s future.
