NASSCOM Product Conclave, Kolkata 2015

NASSCOM Product Conclave
The National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) is a trade association of Indian Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing industry. NASSCOM conducts an annual event called the Product Conclave. The NASSCOM Product Conclave (NPC) is an annual gathering of product and associated service entrepreneurs, technological start-ups, angel investors, academicians, CIOs and analysts. A large part of the existing product companies are represented at the NPC.

This will be the first time I attend the NASSCOM Product Conclave Kolkata. Every entrepreneur I have interacted with speaks extremely highly of the NPC, and hence I can’t wait to be present there to witness the spectacle. Hopefully, it will be a positive learning experience for me in terms of building an entrepreneurial mindset, and learning the tips and tricks of the trade. I have heard about NPC 2014, where the plan to execute the 10,000 start-up warehouse was announced, with the help of Dr. Amit Mitra, Honourable Minister of the West Bengal Government. Currently, the process is operational, nurturing some very interesting start-ups in the city.

NASSCOM has grand plans for NPC Kolkata 2015. The objective of the Conclave is to provide a great platform to the entrepreneurs and start-ups for understanding the market and plunge into it with solutions that can draw more takers. So, the sessions and workshops will be impactful for the start-ups as they will be exposed to the emerging trends in technology for business growth. But that is not the end because this event is a great place to increase networks and get an access to global market by pitching for the products and solutions to investors. There will be speakers who may help to set foot in the world of technology, if they find anything worth appreciating. Beside IT, NASSCOM Product Conclave Kolkata 2015 plans to have a separate section where the companies from different sectors like Manufacturing, Retail, Healthcare, Financial Services etc. will be benefited by interacting with the local IT players.

The NASSCOM website enlists the objective of NPC Kolkata 2015 as follows:
1.      Promote and market products, solutions and associated services
2.      Provide a great platform for technology entrepreneurs and start-ups to network
3.      Discuss best practices, Sharing of knowledge by think-tanks, successful entrepreneurs and CXOS

If you are a fledgling start-up, the NPC is a great platform for you to showcase your products, interact with others in your field, and learn from successful entrepreneurs who will be sharing their experiences and offering guidance. Networking is key to create a buzz about your start-up. The youth of Kolkata are not lacking in ideas. The NPC is the perfect place to strategize how to best execute that idea in a form that will offer a value addition to the ecosystem, and will bring in enough financial stability to be a full-time business. For any young start-up in Kolkata, or anybody eager to learn more about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, 3rd July is a significant date. 

The NASSCOM Product Conclave Kolkata will be held at The Hyatt Regency, Kolkata.
