  • CANCELLED: 3rd Annual Conclave on Innovation co-hosted by South Asian Business Association (SABA) and India Innovation Institute (III)

    Conference | Networking Event | Panel Discussion


    This year’s SABA Conclave is focused on the idea of disruption in business.

    In a world where every facet of business is ever changing and evolving to embrace new technologies and data, we explore three areas of interest to the South Asian economy and how industry leaders are helping steer their companies in the right direction. We aim to enable a forum of discussion where we talk about businesses and interests that didn’t exist five years ago - but which are thriving now. We hope to provide a detailed view of what may come next.

    Join us for a can't miss event where we will answer these three tough questions: What will the payments industry look like next? What is social innovation, and why is it important now? Is the Indian economy slowing down or simply dormant before another era of explosive growth?
