TechSparks has been making ideas happen for Indian techpreneurs, entrepreneurs, and start-ups for a decade now, and has seen its influence grow exponentially every year. Now recognised as India’s greatest startup summit, TechSparks is the flagship event of YourStory, a platform founded by Shradha Sharma (also its CEO & Chief Editor) in 2008, dedicated to bringing out stories about India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Thanks to the exemplary leadership, initiative, and vision of YourStory, TechSparks has now transformed into the go-to platform for startups & entrepreneurs looking for ideas, funding, guidance & mentorship.
So, we’re super kicked to announce that Smartech is the proud Martech sponsor of TechSparks 2018 and you can find us at booth #S10! We’re hosting a Masterclass on the importance of AI in marketing (but more on that later), and have an exclusive offer for the startup attendees – You can check it out here.
In an ecosystem that is becoming increasingly digital, size does not matter – it’s the strength of your ideas that does. But, to market these ideas and products, startups need a reliable marketing automation platform that gives them the best & latest in technology while allowing them to do so at scale & in real time, and very importantly, at reasonable costs.
Smartech is our AI-powered growth marketing platform that is poised to help India’s techpreneurs & entrepreneurs achieve just that – growth, by satisfying all of the above parameters. While a majority of startups have a strong relationship with technology, marketing is at times a problem area for even the best of them. And, most startups are bootstrapping – which means fighting for survival and figuring out a growth strategy both on a shoestring budget. That’s like a rocket firing on all four cylinders while being on the supplementary fuel supply – it’s a huge challenge.
Startups are also trying to make space for themselves in an ecosystem where the big brands have the advantage of visibility, huge brand recall (not to mention budgets), and as a result, audience mindshare. In vying for the attention of their digital audiences, startups need to have tools that are tried & tested in the market, exhibit an ease of use given the low manpower that they expectedly have, as well as readily available tech & business support in terms of consultancy.
This is what Smartech stands for.
It has a full stack of marketing automation tools in one place allowing your brand to ‘listen’ to your audiences across various social & digital channels, add to that the gamechanging capabilities of AI so as to allow you to build your database that will accrue performance-enhancing insights in due time, and finally, cross-channel marketing for reaching out to the user/customer at the right stage of their customer journeys. All of this, with the readily available support from Smartech’s Martech consultancy services including seamless integration of your data. Finally, we have all of this in a DIY format: You can sign up here for a free!
