Topic: UNICORNS & DECACORNS: ANALYSING THE IMPACT ON INDIA INC
Theme:
Brief Note:
India has become the 3rd largest startup ecosystem in the world after the US and China, and while this is definitely a reason to celebrate, we must also review and analyse how the emergence of Indian Unicorns and Decacorns are impacting job creation, capital markets and the Indian economy at large. In our season finale of the Leaders of Tomorrow Masterclass, we speak with experts to understand both sides of the coin. On the one hand we will discuss the likelihood for startups to achieve a billion-dollar valuation and how quickly they transition from a Unicorn to a Decacorn in a market that is still reeling from the effects of the pandemic as well as the more recent Russia-Ukraine war; while on the other, the impact of a growing digital economy creating low-skilled jobs & increasing pandemic-induced plastic pollution.
