Full Release

After its resounding successes in its past five editions across three different cities, Proto.in is back on 25th July at Dewang Mehta Auditorium, Persistent Systems, Pune to continue to strengthen and promote the start up eco system, as India’s biggest and most awaited start-up event. Proto.in has built an unmatched reputation of being the one event the entire entrepreneurial ecosystem looks forward to, across the length and breadth of India.

What's Special This Proto.in?

This edition of Proto.in intends to take a solid leap and focus on policies that support Start-ups both in IT and non IT sectors. The start-up community at Proto.in will analyze and understand how best to leverage the existing policies and in what ways it can get involved with key stakeholders such as the government in strengthening the policies further.

Ganesh Natarajan (CEO – Zensar Technologies, Chairman - IT & ITES CII and Member - Chairmen's Council NASSCOM) will deliver the keynote address to the community during this edition.

And further for the first time, the audience will get an in-depth analysis on Intellectual property rights and how it affects start ups by renowned experts and we will see focus move beyond dot com to non internet ventures and how to be a part of this space.
