The Coalition's First Mumbai Edition To Debut This Weekend

Posted at March 30th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

The ‘festival of creativity’, The Coalition connected by Hike Messenger, comes to Mumbai for the first time, after three successful years in the capital. The Coalition brings India’s creative community together with the aim of fuelling the next wave of creative ventures in the country. The festival when it started in 2014 was set up as a creative enterprise boot camp, a quick stop to learn how to navigate the business of creativity. It then gave way to a festival that spoke to both, creatives as individuals, and creatives as a part of an industry, a movement.

Vijay Nair, CEO, Only Much Louder says, “The Coalition was born out of sheer frustration of attending entrepreneurship conferences in India where the creative industry had almost no presence. Of course, that stemmed from the larger issue that the creative sector is not even recognised as an Industry by decision/policy makers. Over three years we have been able to build a community of young entrepreneurs who were able to get an insight into building businesses in India from the finest minds of our industry. It’s going to be exciting to see the response to it in Mumbai, where the heart of the Indian creative industry lies.“

The debut edition in Mumbai on March 31 – April 1 will see key names from the creative industry join including Hosi Simon (Global General Manager VICE), internationally renowned sports presenter Harsha Bhogle, actor & comedian Mallika Dua, Kunal Shah (Founder, Freecharge), comedian Zakir Khan, Lakshmi Pratury (Founder & CEO, INK), Rega Jha (Editor, Buzzfeed India) along with Tanmay Bhat, Gursimran Khamba, Rohan Joshi, and Ashish Shakya of comedy collective AIB. Festival tickets priced at Rs. 599 for one day and Rs. 999 for both days are on sale on Insider.in.

More information on the festival is available on the festival website, www.thecoalition.in.
