We’re pleased to announce our final set of speakers for the #NAMA Conference: two Founders who have build companies out of India, targeting global markets: Paras Chopra, Founder & CEO of Wingify, and Girish Mathrubootham, Founder & CEO of Freshdesk. Both are two fairly young startups, build as SAAS models, and are multi-million dollar businesses. We’ll discuss with Paras and Girish, the challenges and opportunities related to building a business out of India, how they got their first customer, how they market their businesses, and what their views are on building product companies versus SAAS businesses.

A transformation is taking place in both the Internet and Mobile services businesses. Along with uncertainty, there is significant opportunity. #NAMA seeks to shed light on challenges and uncertainties, what market leaders are doing about it, and point towards opportunities through deep, insightful and meaningful discussions and sharing of experiences.
Our focus is on providing the audience with valuable insight on the decisions that are being made, why they’re being made, what developments are influencing them, and how they will impact the growth of the digital industry going forward. We will provide #NAMA attendees with significant and varied learning about the digital ecosystem, and give them a reason to stay in the conference hall, not just chat in the hallway.
#NAMA will be a conference with a healthy mix of ideas, thought leadership and with important operational questions being addressed, with fresh ideas being shared and showcased, and hopefully, defining a sense of directions in these uncertain times, and a vision. #NAMA is being organized by MediaNama, the premier publication on the evolution of India’s digital ecosystem, being held on October 10th 2012, at The Westin, in Gurgaon
