About

Talks submissions for this year has ended. We are overwhelmed by the proposals and would love to collaborate with you for the next edition.

A multi-day, multi-nodal laboratory for the future of entrepreneurship and disruptive innovation. Cutting across sectors and spaces, the Festival will focus on highlighting all things cutting-edge and trans-disciplinary through an eclectic collection of partners, events, spaces, formats and collaborators.

Construkt at its core is fueled by one fundamental ambition: putting the Indian startup ecosystem on the map as a global hub for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The coming edition of Construkt will take this ambition to the next level by turning the spotlight on entrepreneurs who are thinking big by scaling up and scaling out and exploring newer territories.
