The speakers may also share any other instances which they think would be beneficial to the members of the audience.

    The speakers for IdeaKon include Dhaval Shah  ( Pharmacy, XLRI, general secretary, 2013),  Jaspreet Singh Saluja (founder,  Housing), R avi Shankar Mishra (fFounder, Medinfi healthcare ),  Sharad Kumar (founder, Fashionove) and Ayaan  Chawla (Founder and CEO of Asian Fox Developments) .

    IdeaKon is an interactive event which includes speaker sessions conducted by entrepreneurs, enlightening the audience about their exciting journeys, with an Audience to Startup Networking Session, followed by a Startup to Startup Networking Session. These speaker sessions would be from several back grounds; ranging from fashion ; to green fuel; to healthcare; to IT solutions.

    The purpose behind this is to bring variety to the platform and facilitate healthy discussion. To encourage the student fraternity at XLRI, the rounds also have an elevator pitch session that will be running parallel to the aforementioned Networking Sessions.  

    The audience would benefit greatly from the experiences shared by the startups on the stage, as well as off stage.
