The way forward – Startup Jalsa 2018, Himachal Pradesh
Vision for Timber Trail, Himachal
Keeping in sync with our aim to organize conferences in remote locations, Startup Jalsa 2018 is coming to Timber Trail, Himachal Pradesh, giving the local community a platform for good connections.
For one long weekend, we would have a mini startup ecosystem in Timber Trail, Q&As with leading entrepreneurs of India, panel discussions and masterclass workshops.
Wrapped in the quiet charms of Kasauli in Himachal, Timber Trail has been a global destination for tourism since long and we want to access that USP to create a base for startups.
At 2017 Jalsa, we had a panel dedicated to startups in Himachal, who talked about the state having a good support base for sustenance and marketing assistance of startups.
Given that the people here are well networked and the cost of operations is low as compared to Delhi or Bengaluru, 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 endeavor.
