Startup Saturday Kolkata: April 2016 Edition

Moving into a new financial year, this is a good time to identify minute details related to accounting, compliance & law, which are ignored by many entrepreneurs. Small glitches can make a big dent in your operations, attracting unnecessary hassles and loss of time as well as money. 

It is in the benefit of entrepreneurs to take precautions to be insulated from large hassles/problems they can attract if these little details are missed out on.

Headstart brings to you an awesome treat after the gruelling year-end. Come and make the most from this month's speakers, who will share with you a few crucial experiences and some useful information!
