Venture capital firm GGV Capital’s Hans Tung is recognised as one of the world’s top 100 venture capitalists.

It was an absolute delight hosting him at YourStory’s annual flagship event TechSparks last year, where he spoke about his faith in the resilience of the Indian startup ecosystem.

He’s back again on Day 3 at TechSparks 2021 to talk about why he believes India is the next global growth opportunity. You would not want to miss the man with the Midas touch in action.

To date, Hans has backed more than 16 unicorns around the world, including Meili, OfferUp, Peloton, Poshmark, Slack, Airbnb Udaan, Vedantuand Wish.

Next, we'll have Dunzo Co-founder and CEO Kabeer Biswas talking to us about getting things ‘Dun’ (pun intended), and the startup’s growth and expansion plans.

Ravi Chhabria, Managing Director of NetApp is set to deliver a powerful keynote around cloud database and why that's the tech that'll rule the future, which is as snug a fit as you can find for our “What’s next” theme this year.

If you’ve been mulling over when would be a good time to book vacation tickets in the backdrop of the pandemic, you are likely to find direction and guidance at a panel comprising Ixigo co-founders, Rajnish Kumar and Aloke Bajpai. Also, catch them talking about the startup’s plans for the next billion users in India.

Next, we’ll have a really engaging panel featuring Zivame CTO, Yash Dayal, and Yellow.ai Co-founder, Rashid Khan, on how companies can use conversational commerce to change consumer behaviour for the good of the consumer, such as preventing them from buying things they don’t really need. 

We’ll also introduce you to India’s first woman unicorn founder, Ankiti Bose of Zilingo, who will talk about becoming a Southeast Asia sensation.

Our diversity agenda track will feature conversations around making the workplace more inclusive, as well as shine the spotlight on exemplary women in traditionally male-dominated domains such as finance, information tech and SaaS.

Masterclasses on Day 3 will feature speakers from CoinDCX,Cashfree Payments,FarEye, Capbase, and Simyog, among others.

Expect to see conversations that go beyond the ordinary and the surface, on the third day of TechSparks, as we ask industry leaders: What’s Next?
