The 5th consecutive India Internet Day, scheduled for 29 April 2016 at the Leela Ambience, Gurgaon has carved a unique positioning in the industry and has emerged stronger and smarter in each edition. IID 2015 took the event to the next level – with 800 Delegates, Inspiring keynotes and sessions it was trending all over the net creating a buzz across the eco-system. The vision of IID 2016 is to look at the long term horizon and paradigm shifts in the internet industry globally and what that means for the Internet business in India. While based in India, the event seeks to have a strong global connect. The forum also explores the shape of things to come while connecting with the established players, outliers and experimenters – making the forum as a point of reference.
2015 was record year for technology startups in India. The number of startups created doubled from 2014 to 2015. Funding doubled to $5 billion with more than $700M in early-stage financings and $4.3 billion in growth rounds. However, notwithstanding the continuing strong growth in Internet access, smartphones and data usage in India, a new reality has set-in with growth investors pulling back from several overfunded sectors.
Startups are being forced to return to fundamentals to build strong core businesses. What should entrepreneurs focus on in order to build and scale sustainably? This is what brings us to the theme of #iDay 2016, India’s largest Internet conference: Emerging from the Froth.
#iDay 2016 will provide entrepreneurs with a set of tools and perspectives to focus on the fundamentals. We will learn about delighting customers in Love Conquers All, changing models of growth in Entrepreneur 2020, new efficient ways of marketing in the Mobile Marketing workshop, and benchmarking against successful scaled companies.
We will also hear from luminaries such as Sachin Bansal of Flipkart, Kashyap Deorah author of Golden Tap, Ravi Adusumalli of SAIF Partners and Vijayshekhar Sharma of PayTM on how they are building strong companies while navigating through global competition and the changed financing environment.
For entrepreneurs who are looking at start or are building their startups, #iDay 2016 is in an essential pitstop to retool and reboot for the new environment.
