ABOUT

With the second wave of COVID-19 wreaking havoc on India’s MSME sector, challenges such as supply chain disruptions, lack of demand, and expenses are mounting.

To address the devastating effects of the second wave on MSMEs and bring their stories of resilience in the face of new challenges, YourStory is organising its third annual India MSME Summit, with our title sponsors Lenovo and Intel, co-sponsors AWS & TransUnion CIBIL, associate partners Mastercard, Vi Business & Easebuzz, insights partner Crediwatch.

With its theme of ‘Roadmap for MSME Resilience and Recovery’, the 10-day virtual event, culminating in a grand finale on June 27 2021, MSME Day will put the spotlight on important conversations through a series of incisive interviews, insightful panel discussions, and thought-provoking articles.
The virtual event will be attended by entrepreneurs, policymakers, technologists, investors, mentors, and business leaders.

Grand Finale (June 27)

The Grand Finale on June 27, 2021 will see the 10-day-long summit culminate in a closing event featuring experts, government stakeholders and entrepreneurs who will discuss the way forward for the MSME sector and its roadmap for recovery. The Grand Finale will have one-on-one conversations with representatives of the industry, fireside chats, panel discussions and much more.
