After the successful first edition, the 2nd edition of VCCircle’s Hyderabad Investment Forum will capture and identify the emerging sectors and the entrepreneurs who will redefine and lead the industrial scenario of Andhra Pradesh in the coming years. The event will be held at ISB Campus in Hyderabad on October 11.
Hyderabad, dubbed as Cyberabad in the recent years, has evolved into India’s bulk drug capital or MFI capital or EPC capital. Formerly an agriculture economy, the city is now witnessing the emergence of high quality businesses in IT, healthcare and education sectors. At the same time, the native penchant for construction and contracting continues at the same pace.
The VCCircle summit will discuss key issues impacting the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Andhra Pradesh and will also highlight the attractive opportunities which may surface in the coming years. The panel discussions will bring valuable insights in areas ranging from discovering the entrepreneurial DNA of the state to identifying the sectors and stages that appeal to the investors.
Our sector-focused panels on infrastructure, healthcare and emerging tech themes, such as digital content, e-commerce, SaaS and mobile, will map the opportunities for entrepreneurship and investments in the near future. The forum will also feature two inspiring accounts by entrepreneurs on how they started up, raised funding and scaled up – real-life tales that redefined the spirit of entrepreneurship in the state.
