The increase in the number of youngsters wanting to start up their entrepreneurial journey or to work with startups, with a mindset of working 5 to 9 instead of a typical 9 to 5 job, brings in a much needed “Big Shift” in the country. Continuing its vision to support, startups in India and to provide youthpreneurs a platform to accelerate their growth, Inc42 has announced the launch of “Big Shift Ice Breaking Summit”, a flagship event of its “The Misfits” initiative.
The event, Big Shift Ice Breaking Summit is being organised in association with Jaarvis Accelerator and powered by Nasscom 10000 Startups to address this very change among the #youthpreneurs. Following this event, Inc42 wants to expand its Misfit initiative geographically, and build the online and offline community across metros and tier 2, 3 cities, eying at impacting a quarter million millennials by 2020.
This is a shout out to all the wanderers, hustlers, tech geeks who are part of the early stage startup community.

“While there are hundreds of initiatives around startups, with most of them focused around the early stage segment, the industry still remains unorganised. Young entrepreneurs don’t have an one stop platform for the knowhow of the whole scenario. That’s where ‘The Misfits’ comes in,” said Amit Pandey, COO at Inc42.
To give a kickstart to the event, coorganiser Jaarvis Accelerator is giving opportunity to the startups working in the domains of Fintech, Bitcoin, Blockchain, IoT, Agritech, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence to join its residential accelerator program in HongKong.
For the same, The Misfits, has rolled out application for the startups to give them an opportunity to pitch to the Jaarvis accelerator during the event. Out of the the total applications received, 15 startups will be pitching during the event and top 3 startups get wild card entry to pitch to the Jaarvis board and win a 4month residential accelerator programme in Hongkong.
So, block your dates #youthpreneurs; get ready for an amazing session with The Misfits and st
Jaarvis Accelerator at Innov8, CP on Thursday, 21 April. Be there to witness an actiondriven glimpse into entrepreneurship, networking, mentorship and acceleration.
