Finance Minister Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, to attend Start-up Inclusion Summit to support inclusive growth in Start-Up Ecosystem

BENGALURU, India | 28th November 2022: Vananam Ventures Pvt Ltd, a Bengaluru-based alternative investment start-up, in an initiative to drive inclusive growth in the start-up ecosystem in India, is organising the ‘Start-up Inclusion Summit’ on 26th November 2022 in Bengaluru.

Through this event, the start-up wants to bring all the relevant stakeholders together – industry, government and academia – to build an inclusive ecosystem in the start-up space. There is a lot that a start-up and the entire ecosystem can benefit from by being inclusive and by embracing diversity. To support the endeavour, Honourable Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, will be the Chief Guest at Vananam Start-up Inclusion Summit, 2022.

India has seen euphoric growth in the start-up ecosystem in the last two decades. But, this growth has been lopsided and confined to urban areas and gender bias still remains. Moreover,  now more and more youth want to walk the entrepreneurial path and leave an impact. The retail public, too, after becoming an active participant in the stock markets, is now enthused about investing in start-ups.

To facilitate inclusive growth, one needs to be provided with a strong stimulus and hurdles that impede the growth of diverse talent need to be removed. These startups face significant hurdles at every stage in their journey – be it ideation, validation, product creation, raising investments or simply finding the right talent pool, because the ecosystem is not mature enough to support their needs.

To address all these issues, Vananam Ventures have organised an event wherein luminaries from various fields will brainstorm on how they can drive inclusive growth in the start-up ecosystem and make Bharat the world’s top start-up nation. 

Speaking about the motivation to do this event, Keshav Inani, Founder and CEO, Vananam said, “Wealth creation through new-age alternative investing instruments should not be confined to a few. Our mission is to make the process easy for all. At the same time, founders from across the country, irrespective of their location, gender or age should be able to blossom to their fullest potential. We find our passion in making their journey easy and it is our great privilege that the Honourable Finance Minister and several other eminent personalities are coming together to support this cause. We are truly humbled at the gesture.”

The theme of the Event: Inclusive Growth In Start-up Ecosystem

Areas of Discussion

  1. Bringing retail participation in start-up investing
  2. Nurturing women-led start-ups
  3. Encouraging founders in Tier-II and III cities
  4. Need for a unified platform to transform students into becoming entrepreneurs

In addition to the Honourable Finance Minister, several distinguished personalities from government, corporate world, start-up ecosystem and academia will be addressing the audience at the event.
