Hon’ble Karnataka Chief Minister Sh Basavaraj Bommai will be the Chief Guest at the upcoming BW Unicorn Summit & Awards to be held on 21st and 22nd July, 2022 at The Lalit Ashok, Bengaluru.

The BW Unicorn Summit & Awards 2022, a first of its kind globally, is a two-day commentary on how the average-Joe can climb one’s very own professional Everest. 

Day I will juxtapose changemakers with hopefuls, looking at how founders have built Unicorns, and concurrently, drawing a playbook for today’s innovators aspiring to become tomorrow’s pathbreakers. 

Day 2 will chronicle founder journeys from the prism of innovation, enterprise, originality & ingenuity, hosting entrepreneurs from both tech & non-tech backgrounds, to share anecdotes on the importance of treading the path less travelled. In parallel, the summit takes a glimpse into the future, allowing all in attendance to become amateur prophets by anticipating the impact of incipient technologies on a future not yet foretold. Join us as we convene the most storied unicorn founders, most astute investors, most farsighted policy makers and most seasoned ecosystem builders, and put time-tested entrepreneurial paths into practice.

Interestingly in India, while startups founded pre-’05 used to take 14.6 years to become unicorns, for those founded post-’15, the transition from startup to unicorn has been a swift 2.4 years – a reflection of not only growing investor confidence, but also illustrating how a post-pandemic world is prioritising an increasing number of businesses to come online. Unicorn creation clearly is on the upswing. 

A recent Startup Ecosystem Report 2022, released by an Israel-based organisation showed that Bengaluru continues to be the highest-ranked city in India. It has strengthened its position in the top 10 and improved by two positions to rank eighth globally. It is also the third-highest ranked ecosystem in Asia-Pacific, after Beijing and Shanghai.

The presenting partners for this summit are Venture Catalysts and 9Unicorns and the event is supported by the Govt. of Karnataka.
