The 11th edition of TiECon Mumbai is scheduled to be held on 28th - 29th January 2020 at NCPA, Nariman Point, Mumbai with a vibrant theme “The Decade of Startups – Kickstarting the Future”

TiECon Mumbai is the largest Entrepreneurial Leadership Conclave that takes place once a year in
Mumbai. TiEcon Mumbai 2020 will focus on how start-ups are going to drive the future by changing how we use and consume goods and services, interact with technology and deploy them to solve pressing problems. The innovation driven by start-ups may make many current businesses redundant and create opportunities for new ones. TiEcon Mumbai 2020 will spotlight all of this, and more.

In the last decade, startups have emerged as a force to be reckoned with. They have proven their worth to the economy of the country and to the world. But this is just the beginning, as startups and
entrepreneurs are now focusing on more industries with the use of upcoming technologies such as
Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain.
