Inventors I Scalers I Enablers - The disruptive impact of DeepTech

There will be significant momentum for the digital transformation of businesses in the years to come. Interestingly, the global COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated the same as we witnessed in 2020 and this trend will continue. Deep tech components are a key catalyst in enabling the digital transformation journey for companies. Deep tech focus areas, like AI/ML, AR/VR, Blockchain, IoT and others, are finding traction across a host of vertical industries and the outcomes are impressive. In India alone, NASSCOM estimates 18% of startups are focused in this space. In fact the NASSCOM Deep Tech Club has mentored over 78 startups in the deep tech space over the last 3 years. Globally, according to BCG, investments in this space grew at 22% annually and translated to almost $60 billion being invested between 2013 and 2018.

As part of our Straight Talk discussion, we will have the opportunity to learn more about the Why, How and What as we speak with a panel of luminaries and learn more about their experiences in the deep tech space as Inventors, Scalers and Enablers.

The Importance of Product Leadership

How strong product teams work to solve hard problems in ways their customers love, yet work for their business. This is the general topic of Product Discovery, and it's the main subject of the book INSPIRED. However, Iin a distressing number of companies, while the teams may want to work this way, the leaders don't allow the teams to work this way. In response, the focus has turned to the role of product leadership in providing the environment necessary for product teams to do good work. This keynote will focus on the challenges of leadership, and the specific and critical deliverables that product leadership is responsible for. In this talk, Marty will spell out these responsibilities, and discuss why each is critically important, and share examples of strong product leadership from some of the best companies in our industry.

Scaling a cyber security startup
If 2020 was the year for the most digital adoption, it was also the year when cybersecurity came to the front. With data breaches across banks, healthcare, government, fintech, retailers and many others, sophisticated cross border hacking attacks, increase in phishing for the new digital consumer and the increased thrust on data privacy policies, it all brought to the fore the importance of cybersecurity not as something relegated to an IT department, but a much deeper focus on zero trust tech infrastructure and underlying culture of privacy. It also created an opportunity for the startups to build for this fast growth market. India is also building out innovative cybersecurity startups and this fireside chat examines what are the learnings for India from the journey of a Cybersecurity Entrepreneur – Jay Chaudhry, Zscaler.
