I believe that the heart of any startup event lies in the enthusiasm and energy of the startups. And, if one has to go by the sheer energy, then E-Sparks truly sparkled! On the last count we had 500 smart, young and ambitious people from all over India who attended E-Sparks, India’s first e-commerce startup event.As a startup ourselves, we know the most precious commodity startups have - "their time" and as more then 100 attendees told us, at the event that their time was very well spent. Needless to say, we thank all the attendees who took the effort to come from near and far, early Saturday morning to participate, share and learn.Thank you to all the sponsors who supported us to make this event a reality - Sequoia Capital, Microsoft Azure, Martjack, txtWeb and One97.

I am sure the list of thanks is endless but a very big thanks to my awesome and very young team (Varsha Adusumilli, Chandan Raj, Vallabh Rao, Jubin Mehta) for pulling out an event of such a scale and energy with their unmatched passion :)
