NASSCOM EMERGEOUT Conclave 8th edition at Delhi on August 12The IT industry in India has witnessed a remarkable growth in the past two decades, with constant changes that put India on the global map as the biggest service provider in the world. No company hits it big overnight. Companies led by visionary founders and able managers who strategize to put their companies on the growth path followed by execution have scaled to challenge global giants in the business, at times carving a niche for themselves in the process. It’s always lonely at the top and executives and founders always want a direction to take and opportunities to find. They also need to update their skills and capacity to match the growth their companies are set to achieve.
The EMERGEOUT Forum has always focused upon the opportunities that come knocking from time to time. The EMERGE community has been at the forefront of delivering lessons in excellence culled from successful entrepreneurs to emerging companies that are hungry for success and growth. To back up their online and offline activity, the EMERGE Forum holds EMERGEOUT Conclaves twice a year to bring together the community to discuss, deliberate, learn, and share.
The agenda for the upcoming 8th EMERGEOUT Conclave at Gurgaon on August 12 is yet again designed to help entrepreneurs spot opportunities, learn how to scale and how to sell their companies at the apt moment, and know about various opportunities available in the hot sectors that promise to fill the cash registers. And in addition deliver lessons in excellence on executive decision-making.
