Panel Discussion – 1 | Launching a Decacorn

With 72 unicorns emerging in last one year, India is set to enter the age of startup decacorns as well. The Decacorn list of India is getting longer with exciting entrants like Avenue Supermart | SBI Cards, Zomato, Nykaa and Paytm, while Byju’s and Flipkart are waiting to join this elite list. Also, unlisted Decacorns like LIC, NSE, Jio, and Serum Institute of India are getting ready for their capital market debut.

With these recognised Decacorns entering the market soon it is time to take a deep dive into what it takes to succeed in the capital market. Our burgeoning crores of small investors, our excellent regulatory framework and great environment are fertile soil! The stakes are high with dizzy $10Bn plus market cap. Clearly crafting a ‘go to capital market’ strategy needs the biggest and the best capital market advisors.

Our session on ‘Launching a Decacorn’ with the most knowledgeable speakers for this panel discussion would comprise of stars from the Indian corporates both startups and scaleups.

Panel Discussion -2 | Actioning ESG

Now the ball is in the court of the top 1,000 companies with BRSR being implemented by SEBI! This world class framework will take ESG reporting way beyond a ‘tick box’ exercise. In the sustainable development space, key emerging risks are climate change, biodiversity loss and stranded assets. The movement is gaining momentum as actions are now speaking louder than words. ESG in action creates sustained outcomes, drives value and fuels growth.

Actioning ESG has acquired a deeper meaning as culture, wide participation and expectations from stakeholders gain momentum. The imbibing of values, principles and culture of ESG across levels in the organisation is a significant activity BRSR’s KPIs have to be aligned with ESG pillars. Environmentalists, sociologists, economists, strategists and technologists are joining hands to create new ways of thinking and doing. Corporate, NGO and consulting teams are working together to find solutions. This will help measurable change becoming felt.

Our speakers include ESG subject matter experts who are implementing these in their organisations and sharing knowledge all across for the greater good.

Panel Discussion -3 | Harvesting Digital Opportunity

Rapid digitisation, along with the pandemic, has accelerated huge opportunities and risk simultaneously. The future is in hybrid working as the employers raise trust in employees and employees begin to feel more responsible with remote working. Government is going digital in a big way across population strata. 5G rollout is at our door step and Starlink would not like to miss the bus of digital growth in India.

How well prepared are the technology providers and consumers are to receive the same? What role successful corporates will play in garnering value for their top and bottom line with this rapid digitisation? What are opportunities and what would be risks? How prepared are we for both risk and gains? All this and more will be discussed by our learned speakers during this session.
