Registration is free — RSVP on Lu.ma, and join us on November 3.

The future of tech is way bigger than Silicon Valley, which is why Rest of World is holding live events in four different cities to highlight the tech leaders, investors, policy makers and researchers shaping the way their countries are evolving thanks to the internet.

On November 3, join us in Delhi for the next installment of the Future of Tech // LIVE event series, where our programming will center around the impact of tech policies on the future of India.

We will kick things off with a panel discussion on tech policy, moderated by Rest of World’s South Asia Editor, Itika Sharma Punit. The panel, featuring Upasana Taku (Mobikwik), Arghya Sengupta (Vidhi Center for Legal Policy) and Apar Gupta (Internet Freedom Foundation) will take a close look at how the policies about internet businesses, privacy, and data that India creates today will define the country's future in the coming decade.

For our fireside chat, we will be joined by Ankur Warikoo, an entrepreneur, author, and content creator who boasts millions of followers across YouTube and Instagram. Rest of World’s Head of Operations, Eli Berger, will ask Ankur to dive deep into his experience creating content in India, covering everything from navigating the local policy environment to the role that global big tech apps play compared to local startup apps.

The event, presented in partnership with MediaNama, will conclude with a lively dinner and reception, featuring equal parts networking and community-building.

Stay tuned for more live event programming from Rest of World in 2023!
