Key Discussion That Took Place

The event had a hot discussion going on Pune Startups growing and evolving at their pace. These startups are slowly driving the business ecosystem in India and are gathering all the attention of business news and business blogs. Young entrepreneurs with great leadership skills and innovative business ideas are giving many of the established businesses a run for their money.

The reason behind this is that startups bring new competition and fresh ideas to the business ecosystem. The Pune startup ecosystem driven by an extremely young, diverse and inclusive entrepreneurial landscape is rapidly evolving. This is leading to emergence of focused domain solutions for verticals like healthcare, agriculture, education, etc. An additional driving force is a four-fold increase in access to capital through VCs, angel investment, and seed funding, which is allowing Indian entrepreneurs to work on building tailor-made products for their customers.

For sure, the coming months will see more variations as the market matures further, such as introduction of new start-up business models, varying investor sentiments, altered tax regimes, changing consumer preferences and technological advancements. The entrepreneurs who will emerge as winners will the ones who have foreseen and leveraged on the opportunities these changes will present.
