Calling the D2C movers and shakers of New India

Brands of New India Mega Summit, January 28-29, 2022, seeks to understand the elements, trends, solutions, and mindset required to accelerate India’s D2C ecosystem to the next level.

The pandemic has given wings to direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands. From beauty to fashion and even home decor, D2C companies are raking in millions of dollars in venture capital. And, the segment is expected to create a $100 billion market by 2025.

To celebrate the journey of these D2C brands, YourStory’s most anticipated property, Brands of New India, is all set to launch the first edition of its Mega Summit.

The Brands of New India Mega Summit, which will be held on January 28 and 29, 2022, is on a mission to give a platform to current and upcoming D2C brands and enable conversations and connections that empower the ecosystem players. 

In its first edition, Brands of New India Mega Summit will serve as the forum to hear directly from the leaders, entrepreneurs, and pioneers who are leading the transformation in the D2C landscape of the country and paving the way for the future. Read more.

For a 10-year-old startup, Juspay has raised $87.6 million so far – a far cry from other fintech counterparts. It claims to be EBITDA positive for now, looking to invest in its payment and credit products, as well as ecosystem efforts. Read more.
