We bring to you the latest edition of the startup events to attend this week.
In case you are bored of networking events and are looking for some serious ‘gyaan’ on the upcoming status of the Indian startup ecosystem as well as entrepreneurship, then this week’s events will hit the right corner for you.
The week has already kick-started with a strong bond between India, Israel, and the US. NASSCOM in partnership with Indiaspora organised the Tech Triangle Summit today, in a bid to strengthen the trilateral ties between India, Israel and the US for innovation and entrepreneurship.
The chief focus of the summit was to explore the different ways in which the ties between the three countries can be deepened in the future, especially in domains such as geopolitics, business and industry, innovation and entrepreneurship and financial investments.
The experience of attending this summit had been phenomenal for the attendees. Going ahead, we have few more summits, and even a hackathon to charge up the tech-brain of yours this week.
