“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese proverb.
Start-ups are the new sexy, and India’s clamour as the next start-up giant is being heard endlessly, over coffee shops, in metro and at work. The numbers emerging are increasing perennially, and the baby boomers are being lured into opportunities and possibilities that a start-up provides, to live their own story, the overcome bondages, to ideate, innovate and create.
With the similar intent to capture the present zeitgeist, IMI, New Delhi is organising the 2nd edition of its annual start-up summit, ‘E-Merge – 2017’. E-Merge positions itself to be one of the biggest consortium on startups and its ecosystem across all leading B-schools in the country. It is dedicated to provide a platform for discussion on upcoming trends in the world of start-ups, with an even grander scale this year graced by the presence of start-up honchos and venture capitalists, and further attended by media moguls, start-up enthusiasts and students from other b-schools.

With entrepreneurial talks and sessions aimed to deliberate upon the current start-up issues, scenarios challenges along with throwing insights to resolve questions that frequently cross our minds, the summit will also involve the industry chieftains giving a candid brief into their journeys and how they made it big.
The word big will resonate not only in their speeches, but throughout the day of E-Merge, to make it the everest of all e-summits in the town.
