What is SMARTup?

SMARTup is a series of knowledge sharing and networking events being organized by ah! Ventures & meetingsandoffices.com as part of their endeavour to connect the startup fraternity and create valuable business centric conversations between domain specialists and entrepreneurs.


The idea behind these events is to help young companies get the knowledge and resources that they require to get a step closer to what they wish to achieve. We all need a thriving community that brings value and keeps us up and running at all times, to work to the best of our abilities. Through SMARTup, we intend to build one such community with people from all across the country from various domains, backgrounds and cultures.


Different startups from different parts of the country have different issues plaguing their company's growth. We understand that and hence, we are here with SMARTup 2019 and a whole new set of issues that need to be addressed differently for each of your cities. We look forward to covering issues like Angel Tax, difference between Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Art of Networking, An investor’s perspective about the startup being ready for funding, Reasons why Startups fail, Product Validation and new generation marketing, to name a few.


If we missed something you would like for us to include the next time SMARTup is in your city, please write to us: SMARTup@ahventures.in.
