India’s startup ecosystem is booming, with new startups mushrooming in a wide variety of sectors and arenas. However, many of them face similar teething troubles with financial and legal assistance. An upcoming event aims to help startups and their teams with these common problems by addressing them with an industry-led platform.
New startups with unconventional ideas are coming up everywhere these days, and a lot of them are bound to make it big in the business, while many pre-existent ones might break new ground. All these nascent startups are sure to catch investors’ eyes and will very possibly raise substantial funding.
But learning never ends in the venture world. In an effort to guide these new and old startups alike and all those dreamers with bright ideas itching to make it into the business, Lawyered.in has organised ‘Startup BoardMeet 2017’, an event for early-stage, operational, and funded startups to learn how to “Build Businesses for a Billion People”. Taking place on 21st January, 2017 at Indian Habitat Centre, New Delhi, it will bring together the enlightened minds of successful businesses, venture capitalists, and legal experts to share their success secrets.
Startup BoardMeet 2017 will aim to assemble – under one roof – recognised lawyers, investors, and founders to engage in a discussion on the future of the Indian startup ecosystem, devising ways for forward action.
The event focusses on educating entrepreneurs on the essentials required to build a new-age company.
The attendees will be able to witness founders from UrbanClap, Nearbuy, Sheroes, etc. discuss the challenges and focus-points for early-stage startups. They will also dwell on topics such as Profitability vs. Scalability and Brand vs. Business to help entrepreneurs get a better understanding of the Indian startup ecosystem.
There were an estimated 19,000 startups in India at the start of 2016, and the number is going to surpass 50,000 by the end of 2020. On the other end, investments in 2016 were 50 % less than 2015. Investors are becoming more careful with opportunities and know which industries might see better growth in upcoming years.
A lot of sectors still remain untapped, and investors are looking for young startups who might disrupt these sectors. Investors from venture capital firms like Blume Ventures, Lightspeed, and Operator.VC will discuss the future of funding for Indian startups and what they look for in startups before they invest money.
The event also brings the best lawyers from the startup community to discuss topics such as legal essentials, brand protection, and building valuation. Mr. Neeraj Dubey from LKS, one of India’s leading law firms, will give an overview of the legal difficulties that Indian startups face. On the other hand, Mr. Anil Advani, a reputed Silicon Valley lawyer with over 2,000 startup clients, will shed light on the ecosystem outside India.
The event is co-sponsored by the best communities in the startup ecosystem. This will ensure that maximum people are able to benefit from having founders, investors, and lawyers under one roof.
