#Kalaari CXXO Madras Mixer
We had an intimate get-together with leading players from Chennai’s rocking startup ecosystem along with our CXXO community. It’s incredible to see how the startup ecosystem in Chennai has flourished, with more than 2,500 startups and two unicorns.
Special thanks to Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala and Dr. Lakshmi Venu for partering with us on this initiative and driving the entrepreneurial spirit of this city.
Here are some takeaways from the Kalaari mixer:
“Don’t wait for innovation, innovate to launch the product! It takes time to launch a product, so it’s important to constantly innovate and keep ideas alive. ” – Muthukumar A, co-founder of M2P Fintech
“To stay ahead of the game, maintain a forward-looking approach by focusing on emerging technologies and anticipating their impact on the industry. Magzter has kept this principle at the core of its thinking.” – Girish Ramdas, Co-founder & CEO of Magzter
