About TechSparks 2023

Since 2008, YourStory’s flagship startup-tech and leadership conference, Techsparks has brought together entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, policymakers, and other top decision-makers to a single platform. TechSparks has kept an open free-wheeling exchange of ideas and innovation that changes the world around us. And the show and stakes simply get bigger this year.
In our 14th year and edition of TechSparks, we take inspiration from the Government of India’s vision of ‘Technology-enabled Development’. And thus, it will focus on “Building on India’s Tech agenda.”

The three-day long event, to be held between November 10 and 12, will see 10 main sector tracks, 15+ special focus tracks, and sessions spanning 100+ hours. The conversations will take a deep dive across ed-tech, space tech, logistics, Web3, frontier tech, and the future of work, among others.
