D2C Yatra’s first edition concludes with warm reception from startups, VCs, and other stakeholders

D2C Yatra

With the participation of over 200 attendees, 30+ speakers, and various marquee D2C startups and stakeholders, the inaugural edition of D2C Yatra, presented by Entrackr and BharatX, powered by IDFC First Bank, and supported by CCAvenue, was a striking success.

The event kicked off with a keynote from Bhavesh Jatania, National Head of Startup Banking at IDFC First Bank. Jatania touched upon various aspects of the banking sector facilitating the growth of the e-commerce and D2C startup ecosystems in India, besides the efforts made by IDFC First Bank to offer relevant solutions for D2C firms.

Leading industry players and influencers settled in next for some insightful fireside chats and panel discussions. These conversations featured Mamaearth’s co-founders Varun and Ghazal Alagh, The Good Glamm Group co-founder and COO Priyanka Gill, Meesho co-founder and CTO Sanjeev Barnwal, Magicpin co-founder and CEO Anshoo Sharma,  BharatX co-founder and COO Eeshan Sharma, among others.

All the participants shared their perspectives about the current state of the D2C startup ecosystem, dos and don’ts, and what the future could be like. Audience interaction was a key highlight, with both employees from D2C  as well as founders from new firms peppering the experts for answers. The other elements include concurrent workshops to help people interested in the ecosystem learn better and more about the industry ensuring that no one went back without a return on their time spent.

IDAM House of Brands founder and CEO Aakash Anand held a workshop on the business fundamentals of running a sustainable D2C business, whereas Dukaan CEO and founder Suumit Shah talked about technology and growth hacking for aspiring entrepreneurs in the D2C space.

Capping off the landmark day, the D2C Yatra recognized and awarded the top emerging D2C startups in the NCR region of the country. These included Habbits, The Artment, Mountaintribe Kombucha, EcoSoul Home Inc, Cannarama and others.

Following the successful organization of the first edition of D2C Yatra, Entrackr is gearing up for the next one, which is set to happen later this year. We are finalising the next destination of our Yatra and will update about it on the website soon.
