The way forward – Dharamshala
Vision for Dharamshala
Keeping in sync with our aim to organize conferences in remote locations, Startup Jalsa 2018 is coming to Dharamshala. Giving the local community a platform for good connections.
For one long weekend, we would have a mini startup ecosystem in Dharamshala, Q&As with leading entrepreneurs of India, panel discussions and masterclass workshops.
Dharamshala in upper reaches of the Kangra Valley, Himachal Pradesh, has been a global destination for tourism since long and we want to access that USP to create a base for startups.
In 2017 Jalsa, we had a panel dedicated to startups in Himachal, who talked about Himachal having a good support base for sustenance and marketing assistance of startups.
Given that the people here are well networked, the cost of operations from a remote location as compared to Delhi or Gurgaon, there is likely an emergence of 2 to 3 good tech startups in the next 5 years. This inspired us to explore the best of Himachal for our entrepreneurial conference.
