We give you 7 reasons why you shouldn’t be missing MobileSparks this year


Six years ago when the MobileSparks journey first started, the world was just dipping a toe into the sea of potential for mobile devices, the app market wasn’t as crowded, and smartphones weren’t the go-to device for everything – from work to entertainment.

We at YourStory have consistently worked to bring together leading innovators, top influencers from the startup ecosystem, and policymakers onto a single platform every year.

In its sixth year, we turn the spotlight on to what we believe will be the new agents of transformation – The New Billion. These are the people who represent the next wave of mobile adoption. Their needs, expectations, and behaviour will be completely different from previous generations, and MobileSparks 2017 will focus on innovating for this generation of users.

Use the promocode NEWBILLION and get your tickets now for Rs 2099.

This should be reason enough to book your MobileSparks tickets. But if you want more convincing then here are seven other reasons why spending that Saturday at MobileSparks will be a great choice!

A stimulating speaker line-up

Think of the best names in the Indian startup and mobile ecosystem, people who have brought to life game-changing ideas and products that have become a part of your everyday life, and they are going to be there. From Kunal Shah, Founder-FreeCharge, to Jason Wang, EP, Emerging Market, SHAREit Technology, MobileSparks 2017 is your chance to hear it from the industry experts.

Ideas that will catapult your business into a higher league

  • Will languages be the new frontier to capture India’s new billion users?
  • How do you design the rural and urban consumer experience?
  • How can you enable life-transformation through mobile-enabled IoT?

You can expect to get answers to questions like these at MobileSparks. The talks and power-packed discussions will help you rethink your strategy or take a new direction in your journey as an entrepreneur or a tech enthusiast.

A platform to make collaborations happen

From leaders at multinational tech giants, to startup talents, this is one place where you can actually strike up a conversation with people you’ve always wanted to meet, and make that long-awaited collaboration happen. Our ecosystem partners include names such as SHAREit, BigBasket, Oracle, Lightspeed India Partners Advisors, CoWrks, Reverie Inc, among others.

Learn the recipe of success for building solutions for the Indian consumer

India is India, with all its diversity, yet there is an intrinsic sameness about us all at the core. And startups like BigBasket, Nazara Games, MoneyTap, CreditMate, ZestMoney and CreditVidya are clued into this aspect. From building sticky products for Indians or monetising the Indian casual gamer, or turning smartphones into credit cards for the new billion, , hear from them what is their recipe for success in the Indian market.

Tell your story to the YS media team

If there’s one thing we at YourStory pride ourselves on, it is the fact is that we always have time to hear your story. For close to a decade now, we have been covering startups (a large number of them have gone ahead andmade it big, some even into unicorns,) entrepreneurs, and social changemakers in India. And, if you are one with a story to share, just come over to say hi and tell us your story. And, just maybe, we can share it with the rest of the world.

Network, Network, Network

Without networking, how far will you go?

Today, connections and collaborations can mean the difference in making or breaking a deal. It’s imperative that you interact with industry experts, tech leaders, business mentors, and people like yourself, and get conversations going. Sharing experiences, stories and ideas is the best way to learn and grow in today’s connected world.

There are more reasons why you should not miss this event. But we thought it’s best that we leave some surprises for you to discover and experience for yourself at MobileSparks.

So be sure to be there on December 16 at ITC Gardenia, Residency Road, Bengaluru.
