IMI, New Delhi to Organize E-Merge 2017 The Startup Confab

Panel Discussions
While no one can question the government’s intentions to foster startup ecosystem in India, but in light of so many new initiatives in recent times, eyebrows are being raised regarding the transparency and clarity of these initiatives. Apart from startups’ self-inflicted ethical mess, another major deterrent is the grassroots-level corruption. With that in mind, the first panel discussion focuses on answering the question, are we ready to face the challenges of fostering home-grown startups?

The other Panel Discussion focuses on the recent wave of consolidation among new-age companies in the entrepreneurial ecosystem wherein with the funding drying up has resulted in over a dozen buyouts of young startups in the past four months. Many startups that have barely managed the second round of funding are opting to acquire their weaker peers.

Some of the eminent personalities who would be brainstorming on these topics include Mr. Dhruv Arora (Senior VP, Grofers), Mr.Gaurav Munjal (Founder, Unacademy), Mr. Sagar Daryani (Co-Founder and CEO, Wow Momo), Mr.Saurabh Kochhar (Founder, Foodpanda) and Mr.Angad Bhatia (Founder, MensXP and Head, Times Internet).

Entrepreneurial Talks
Additionally, the summit would also have a series of entrepreneurial talks by Mr. Ankur Warikoo (Founder and CEO, Nearbuy, formerly Groupon) and Mr. Arvinder Gujral (Business Development Head for Asia Pacific, Twitter). The talks give an insight into the enticing journey of entrepreneurship and are a source of inspiration for budding entrepreneurs.

E-Merge, 2017 will see participation from students across all top Business Schools, to experience entrepreneurship and learn about the virtues of future businesses.

Participants will also include alumni of IMI Delhi and other reputed colleges, who in their career seek to drive the spirit of entrepreneurship. The event will invite a healthy dialogue among current and future entrepreneurs as they dwell upon the intricacies of the industry as well as the Indian market scenario.

Last year’s event saw stalwarts like Mr. Kunal Shah (Founder, FreeCharge), Mr. Lalit Mangal (Co-Founder, CommonFloor), Mr Raghav Verma (Co-Founder, Chaayos), Mr K Vaitheeswaran (Founder, IndiaPlaza) often regarded as the ‘father of e-commerce in India’ and a host of other eminent personalities from the e-commerce world. The event was attended by more than a 1000 attendees and this year it promises to be even bigger and better.
