Kalaari Annual Summit

While last year about 4% of the country’s GDP was derived from digital products, it is estimated that within the next four years nearly 60% of India’s GDP will have a strong connection to digital transformation trends. By 2025, India is poised to grow into a trillion dollar digital economy and at Kalaari we believe that this growth will be strongly accelerated by India’s technology startups backed by venture capital. Going forward, as startups enable inclusive digital growth, we expect them to embrace India’s diversity and build unique “Hindustan Hamara” business models that can scale rapidly. 

Yet, there are many questions unanswered. Will India deliver on its promise of startup and venture returns? Do Indian startups have the tech-talent to build world-class products? Can startups create value outside of India’s affluent and aspirational population?  Whether you’re skeptical or optimistic about India’s startup opportunity, join us as we debate this and more
