Commenting on MTW’s format, Ashish Hemrajani, Founder & CEO, BookMyShow, and TEAM founding member said: ”Mumbai Tech Week is conceptualised to be the most fun, interactive platform for the tech community that will steer away from the conventional formats. The objective is to get the tech talent and entrepreneurs network, engage, and co-learn, in the most candid setting through the week – almost like a youth fest for the tech corporate world.”
Sharing about the 45 member collaboration, Sreevathsa Prabhakar, Founder & CEO, Servify, and TEAM founding member said: ”The energy, enthusiasm, can-do attitude and collaboration approach is what differentiates Mumbai. And with 45 tech founders and companies hosting the Mumbai Tech Week, it will be a testament to these characteristics of the city. Irrespective of us belonging to different sectors and growth stages, it’s great to see being unified by one vision to scale the tech ecosystem in Mumbai.”
