Celebrating the Success at Vibrant Gujarat Startup

After the success at NSIT, we headed at Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar for Vibrant Gujarat Startup Summit 2016 with lots of hopes. From past few months we have worked really hard to get the exact results of coding on Karconnect app and Karconnect website, and finally, we got a huge platform to represent our startup amongst the tech giants and government bodies.

Vibrant Gujarat Summit event is mainly aimed at bringing together business leaders, investors, corporations, thought leaders, policy and opinion makers by Gujarat Government. It is a giant platform for every startup to exhibit themselves in front of others. The government of Gujarat, since years, enthusiastically promotes this event every year to provide entrepreneurs a step ahead to their success.
