What is SMARTup?

SMARTup Conclave is a series of round table knowledge sharing and networking events being organized by ah! Ventures & meetingsandoffices.com as part of their endeavor to connect the start-up fraternity and create valuable business-centric conversations between domain specialists and entrepreneurs.


The focus of these conclaves would be to deal with issues and problems that plague young companies and divert their focus from their core competences and business. Different startups from different parts of the country have different issues plaguing their company's growth. We understand that and hence, we are here with SMARTup 2019 and a whole new set of issues that need to be addressed differently for each of your cities. Issues such as business planning and strategy development, aligning immediate and long term goals, generating investor interest, scaling a business, managing cash flows, building sticky relationships & customer loyalty, getting paying customers, regulations, compliance, understanding term sheets, understanding how to go about building your tech as a non-techie without a tech co-founder, sales and marketing processes, how to focus on and enhance the logic of business, what is the role of IoT in business, when do you need AI and what does AI mean beyond chat-bots for your business etc. will all be amongst the many topics that would be covered under these conclaves. If we missed something you would like for us to include the next time SMARTup Conclave is in your city, please let us know at hyderabad@SMARTup.how.


We all need a thriving community that brings value and keeps us up and running at all times, to work to the best of our abilities. Through SMARTup, we intend to build one such community with people from all across the country from various domains, backgrounds and cultures. SMARTup Conclave is a focused and enriched networking and knowledge sharing experience that will bring tremendous value to entrepreneurs and young businesses. Each SMARTup Conclave shall have limited seating.

Why Startups Fail?


You're an entrepreneur? Let me guess, you're making the next big thing right? 4 out of 5 of us think the same, while that 1 other person becomes the next big thing.

Timing: 11:35 pm to 12:05 pm

The Art of Networking


The power of networking is, more often than not, underestimated to a great extent. When you walk in to a networking event and you don't interact much, that's a no-no.

Taxation of Startups and Term Sheets
