NASSCOM
Gordon Moore predicted change every 18 months for new-age electronic devices and the famous Moore’s law holds good even after 35 years. In a rapidly changing technology scenario that brings new technologies and therefore new opportunities, it is important to understand what will be key drivers of growth in the upcoming years. NASSCOM has identified Cloud, mobile and social platforms as the key drivers of innovation and scale up in the technology domain in the near future in India and the EMERGEOUT Conclave at Delhi (August 12, Leela Kempinski, Gurgaon) will focus on these three themes.

Internet penetration is likely to touch 300 million users in the next five years, which is three times the present numbers. Cloud computing, the new rage of technology, will touch $1 billion in market size around the same time. There is no technology without social nowadays. Mobile apps are likely to become an industry as big as the software services industry, if predictions are going to be true.

The agenda promises to be as exciting and as informative. Apart from hosting the key thought leaders who will be able to predict the trends with a fair amount of accuracy, technology entrepreneurs stand to benefit from workshops that will give them real-time lessons and pointers.

Which are the areas this Conclave is likely to touch upon?

  • How do we build an eco-system which will induce young entrepreneurs to start ventures in this domain? Can we showcase enough success stories which will help break down age-old myths? Can we create channels where the individual can touch upon for financial support and not spend an insane amount of time running from pillar-to-post?
  • How does one scale up? What are the challenges of scaling-up – structurally, technically and financially? Workshops are planned, by some very senior thought leaders to address these issues.
  • Celebrating Entrepreneurship – how different are tech entrepreneurs from their predecessors.
  • Experiments with “Sales” – strategies likely to succeed.
  • Dark side of saying “No” – when and if at all should entrepreneurs walk away from deals? If at all.

AppFame

Starting last year, NASSCOM has been trying to build in an ecosystem space for mobile apps. Continuing with the AppFame from last year’s Delhi Conclave, this event will also host AppFame, the showcase of eight best mobile apps. If you have developed an App (on the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Symbian, etc.), which you think will create waves in the tech world, then please apply. There will be a jury panel which will evaluate all entries and the Top 8 Apps will be awarded and showcased at the event. You have a couple of days only. So hurry!

Don’t miss out. Register for the conclave here.
