As we all may have experienced at some point, entrepreneurs committed to taking novel ideas to low-income markets face complex challenges resulting in high risks and uncertainty.
To increase the success rate of enterprises catering to low-income markets, entrepreneurs therefore require more opportunities to connect with thought leaders and peers to acquire new perspectives, be inspired, discuss and share potential solutions with key stakeholders.
Ennovent is therefore proud to announce the launch of Ennovent’s Thought Leader Sessions – a series of events held across India which will offer a platform to inspire, discuss, network and connect with experienced practitioners to solve key challenges in taking ideas to low-income markets.
The inaugural Thought Leader Session hosted in partnership with TiE Delhi-NCR, Social SIG will take place on Friday, 24th May at 91 Springboard, Delhi and is entitled: No Entrepreneurs or No Investors?
What do we mean by No Entrepreneurs and No Investors? Well, in India’s growing entrepreneurial ecosystem all too often entrepreneurs claim that few relevant investors exist, while investors state there are insufficient investment-ready enterprises. This fragmentation creates misaligned expectations and, at times, stifles exciting innovations. We are therefore bringing together leading entrepreneurs and investors to debate this unique challenge.
In this interactive session, we aim to question:
• What are the funding gaps faced by early-stage enterprises?
• Are investors really risk-averse? Or, are enterprises not investor-ready?
• What are the challenges faced by investors in sourcing high-potential deals?
• How many enterprises are actually investor-ready? What’s needed to improve this rate?
Speaking at this event* are Vijay Pratap Singh, Founder and Managing Director, ekgaon; Rajnish Jain, Co-Founder, Avani Bio Energy; Priyanshu Gupta, Associate Vice-President, Lok Capital and Srikant Sastri Chairperson, Vivaki India, Angel Investor & Social Visionary
So, don’t wait any longer. Register now for No Entrepreneurs or No Investors?
Not only will this inaugural Thought Leader Session provide the opportunity to learn new insights from leading entrepreneurs and investors but also engage and network with key stakeholders to drive your work forward. We look forward to seeing you there!
