SMARTup is a platform for knowledge sharing and networking being organized by ah! Ventures & MeetingsAndOffices. Their endeavour is to connect the startup fraternity and create valuable business centric conversations between domain specialists and entrepreneurs. SMARTup will be holding meets in metropolitan cities such as Hyderabad, Bengaluru as well as in startup based cities such as Jaipur, Pune, Chandigarh to name a few.
The focus of these SMARTup’s is to deal with issues and problems that plague young companies and divert their focus from their core competencies and business. Issues such as business planning and strategy development, aligning immediate and long term goals, generating investor interest, scaling a business, managing cash flows, building sticky relationships & customer loyalty, getting paying customers, regulations, compliance, understanding term sheets, understanding how to go about building your tech as a non-techie without a tech co-founder, sales and marketing processes, how to focus on and enhance the logic of business, what is the role of IoT in business, when do you need AI and what does AI mean beyond chatbots for your business etc. will all be amongst the critical topics that would be covered under the series.
Abhijeet Kumar, Co-founder of SMARTup emphasized on his goal to achieve a greater startup nation in a few words
SMARTup is a platform which aims to give the country’s potential startups a boost and a platform to achieve more visibility.
Over the past decade, there have been more startups being established. And, they need the guidance to accelerate their young company’s growth in the right direction. That is what SMARTup is driving to achieve.
Indore is populated with startup ecosystems. Indore being the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh has many industries and startups booming into successful businesses. Indore being the industrial center in the heart of India, we are grooming the ecosystem and wanting to increase awareness about startups, funding, investments, etc. through SMARTup.
At Indore, SMARTup will be curating one on one discussions of our audience with eminent people from the ecosystem. During this meet, startups could benefit the chance to meet prominent investors from across the country, all under one roof. If you want to know more about SMARTup, please visit SMARTup Indore
