India’s most amazing startup event, UnPluggd is scheduled for this Saturday (December 1) in Bangalore and as always, we bring you inspiring speakers, startup journeys from the trenches and of course, super powerful startup demos.
1. Jaspreet Singh, co-founder and CEO of Druva.
Druvaa, the online backup service that has grabbed customers like NASA, Xerox, PwD etc.
Jaspreet bootstrapped the company while defining the product, sales and marketing strategies that have resulted in Druva’s early and impressive success.
At UnPluggd, Jaspreet will share key learnings/experince of building a global B2B business from India and specifically – will touch upon the company’s decision to NOT sell in Indian market (first).
2. Baskar, Amagi Founder.
Amagi is a very interesting startup journey especially when you are told that the founding team didn’t have a lot of media business experience and eventually, ended up disrupting the local advertising space on TV!
Another interesting aspect about Amagi is that nobody in the team has an official designation in their business cards – everybody carries ‘job description and responsibilities‘ [and NOT a designation]! So how do you build a team when there aren’t any official designations (given that Indians often look at ‘senior’, ‘lead’, ‘VP’ etc roles)? Baskar will talk about all of that.
3. Paul Singh, Partner at 500Startups
