Inc42’s Maker Summit 2021
For the past six years, Inc42 has been at the forefront of championing the country’s technology and startup ecosystems, and driving the narratives which matter most. After a phenomenal response to our first virtual conference – ‘The Product Summit 2020’, which brought together 5,000-plus attendees from India’s product community, we identified the gap in the market and the need for a platform for the same.
As our next step for enabling this thriving ecosystem, we are excited to announce The Makers Summit 2021, an initiative by Inc42 Plus, to foster the future leaders and makers of India, and usher in the ‘Talent 3.0’.
The Makers Summit 2021 — India’s largest online conference for product companies, will bring together 10,000-plus product leaders, marketers and designers, to inspire you to build better products for a better India.
