The TechSparks Legacy
WHY MUMBAI
For over 12 years, TechSparks has been in Bengaluru, where thousands flew to India’s startup capital to join the country’s largest startup-tech conference. Now, it’s time to spread our wings. We’re headed to Mumbai! After all, India’s financial capital is home to nearly a third of the country's unicorns and is a major startup hub buoyed by innovation-friendly policies and a favourable investor base. Join us as we dive into Mumbai’s role in building India’s tech agenda.

Themes & Focus Areas
01
Frontier Tech
01
Technology is constantly evolving but many of the current technologies could lead to a paradigm shift in our lives. TechSparks will deep-dive into these tech disruptions, the opportunities they present, and the challenges they need to overcome and paint a picture of how these could lead to a new way of life. (Think Blockchain, Metaverse, AI, Big Data, Spacetech, and much more)

02
The India Landscape
02
Sentiment plays a large part in driving public perception but sentiment can oftentimes be misguided. TechSparks will bring together business leaders, policymakers, government officials, investors, and academicians to discuss, debate, and provide insights on opportunities that exist in the midst of the slowdown. (Policy, markets of opportunity and growth, government initiatives and support, etc.)
03
Holistic Leadership
03
At the heart of India’s growth trajectory lies strong, able, and people-centred leadership—both in boardrooms and on ground. TechSparks will celebrate the best leadership stories, from suave corporate offices to the hinterlands, that have led to transformational and sustainable outcomes (Leadership stories of business impact, social impact, technology impact, etc.)
04
Tech for Good
04
Possibly for the first time in history, we are at a juncture where our technology-powered cashless economy is touted to be the most sophisticated in the world. But it’s not just UPI, we have the UHI, ONDC and so much more in the works. Will these large-scale, infrastructural platforms lay the foundation for India’s technological supremacy?
05
Sustainability
05
On one hand, we have all the technological advancements and progress that’s being made for a better life. On the other hand, we run the true risk of not leaving much behind in the planet for the future generations. How deep are we as a country in sustainability? What are the big bets and sustainability-tech initiatives that will empower a truly better future. (Climate tech, EV, agritech)
