Eminent leaders from Advertising & Marketing space such as Grey Group India COO Ketan Desai, Leo Burnett Chief Creative Officer Raj Deepak Das, BARC India CEO Sunil Lulla, Grey Group India CIO Arun Raman will be addressing close to 15,000 delegates at ‘SOW from Home,’ virtual market place and start-up summit on October 22-23, 2020.
The summit brings together start-ups, investors and entrepreneurial brains creating an ideal ecosystem for all stakeholders to benefit from each other. The summit provides, for the first time, a 3D virtual lobby where delegates can meet and communicate with others by choosing the exhibition hall, meeting rooms or auditoriums without stepping outside their houses.
The delegates can also quickly check who is in the present in the same location and strike a conversation. This is a great platform where one can connect with fellow entrepreneurs and investors and take home many new ideas.
Murtuza Kutianawalla, TV Actor & Theatre Director-turned Entrepreneur is the main organiser of the summit, along with his partners Vipul and Nirmit Vikamsey. Murtuza is known in the world of theatre. He has directed prominent actor Darsheel Safary (of movie TaareZameen Par fame) in the comedy play “Two Adorable Losers,” which last year completed its 100th show.
Murtuza is also familiar with the Indian television audience as Rohan Singh, the eldest of the children in Disney’s Fun Comedy “Best of Luck Nikki,” which ran for five years. He has also acted in again in Disney’s “Big Bada Boom.”
Murtuza Kutianawalla, Chief Operating Officer & Co-Founder, SOW Summit, said, “India is the home to world’s third largest start-up ecosystem which needs the right tools to flourish in the existing pandemic times. SOW from Home has been designed keeping this objective in mind.
“Post Covid crisis when people find it difficult to meet in congregations, this summit will ensure all stakeholders – be it Venture Capitalists, PE Funds, and early stage start-up founders or global experts – find and secure what they are looking for at the comforts of their homes,” Kutianawalla said.
Vipul Vikamsey, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder SOW Summit, said, “Through this summit we would like to give right opportunities to potential Indian start-ups to find the right investors. Post Covid crisis, Indian start-ups were among the most impacted by liquidity problems, lack of investors or an opportunity to meet them.
“SOW Summit has been designed as a remedy to these start-up concerns. The start-up participants will be purely 100% Indian as we would like to support our Prime Minister’s objective of creating an Atmanirbhar Bharat by promoting initiatives such as ‘Make In India’ and ‘Startup India,’’ Vikamsey said.
Vipul Vikamsey brings with him a 20+ years experience in the Events industry.
