About The Event



Welcome to Headstart Startup Saturday Ahmedabad!


Theme: Opportunities and Challenges in Food Industry and FoodTech

After a stellar learning session at the Startup Growth MasterClass  which was spearheaded by Paritosh Sharma from PayUMoney and Sanjay Enishetty from 50k Ventures, we decided that we need to learn some more this time, but specific to a particular industry. Learn the intricate details of the system and how to pave your way forward if we were to start a venture today in that particular industry.


The Indian FoodTech and the Opportunities in Food Industry in the country are as hot as the Indian food right now. With multiple entries into this sector and the high amount of interest this sector has generated in the public eye as well as the investor circle has made it impossible for it to stay away from making headlines every week. Gujarat and we gujaratis are people who swear by our food and seeing the amount of buzz this industry has generated, we at HeadStart Network - Ahmedabad have decided to invite a couple of experienced speakers, who have travelled through the journey of an entrepreneur in the food industry in our food-rich city and are still on their way to talk about their experiences, speak about their thoughts on the current system and where it is headed among other things.

Everybody is requested to book their schedules for the date 10th October 2015, 17:00 - 19:30

DATE : 10th October, 2015


TIME : 17:00 - 19:30
