SaaS Summit at NPC

Blog Post created by balla.g on Oct 17, 2017

This year NPC is bringing top minds in the space of AI, ML, VR, AR, NLP, and SAAS. Unlike 5 years ago, today the question of businesses using cloud is no longer a debate. With cloud adoption becoming mainstream, the business models are shifting from licenses to subscriptions.

 

With this, businesses are increasingly adopting SaaS to reduce their operational costs, go to market faster, and with deeper customer insights, deliver a whole new level of value and experience.

 

India is at the centerstage of this shift. Our ecosystem’s sum total of decades of experience in delivering services and products to global companies means we now have the critical scale and expertise in product management, data, design, development and operations. According to a joint research report by Google and U.S. VC firm Accel Partners, by 2025, India is likely to become a $10 billion revenue industry with 8% share of the global SaaS market making us as one of the top SaaS startup destination.

 

Hence it is only befitting to have a dedicated track this year at NPC on all things SAAS!

This track will bring SaaS leaders and key ecosystem players on the stage to decode the SaaS opportunity for Indian startups.

 

We have planned for some high-quality discussions and talks with thought leaders & startups from the industry who will share their distinctive perspectives on the
 global opportunity and how to crack it.


Manav Garg (founder Eka Software) will start with a keynote on - Why this is the right time to build a world-class SaaS startup from India followed by a video address by Sridhar Vembu of Zoho.


A VC Panel to discuss on Unlocking AI through SaaS will host

Vasan SubramanianCTO Accel,
Manish Singhal, Founding Partner Pi Ventures,
