South India, which is reporting above-average growth compared to other regions, is witnessing new-age entrepreneurship and attracting a huge amount of domestic and foreign investments – thus creating a vibrant ecosystem for a large number of emerging companies across Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

VCCircle Bengaluru Investment Summit, now in its 5th edition and to be held on June 19 at Hotel Leela, brings together the top CEOs & entrepreneurs from all southern Indian states, as well as large institutional investors on one platform to discuss and debate paths to build large and highly successful businesses today.

Emerging as a base for the following sectors, South India is evolving into an entrepreneurship epicentre for the entire country. Here is a quick look at the sectors:

Healthcare: New-age, innovation-led companies offering world class infrastructure and equipment, along with internationally acclaimed faculty and affiliations – thus building India’s largest multi-specialty hospital chains and single-specialty healthcare businesses and becoming renowned centres ensuring affordability and supreme quality.

Consumer: Entrepreneurs creating brands that are in the race to become India’s very own Unilever or Pepsi. With high quality products, superior grade, innovation, effective distribution strategies, judicious product mixes and fast-gaining consumer traction, they are also eyeing the fast-moving global market.

Internet: Bangalore’s own industry, it has created a huge talent pool – developing products and building businesses in India and abroad. The industry has created high opportunities and raised VC capital, with large online sellers and big analytics service providers coming into prominence. The ecosystem is simultaneously increasing the internet usage in the country and helping churn out multi-million dollar companies.

Real estate: Developers are shaping the skyline of South India, developing massive townships, housing projects and commercial space, and engaging in other concrete activities, along with backward integration model and in-house resources that deliver projects from conceptualisation to completion.

Infrastructure: Although plagued by problems in planning and execution, the sector is still reckoned as a foundation for the rest. Companies today are embarking on specialised projects/services and planning infrastructure expansion programmes aimed at providing industries with top-notch facilities at competitive pricing.

As the summit gathers top CEOs from the above sectors and more, the full-day agenda will include debates on how to scale businesses from 50 crore to 500 crore; business transformation; raising capital via private equity and debt; sector focus tracking real estate, healthcare, consumer brands, internet and technology; how to build high quality teams for a company and many other key issues and trends.

VCCircle Showcase, a special session at Bengaluru summit, will also showcase hand-picked mid-sized companies who will present their businesses, products, innovations, market opportunities and business models besides explaining how they will disrupt existing markets to create value, followed by live feedback from investors.
