As a company with Indian roots, it is an honor to be selected to participate in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, taking place in our country for the very first time.

Sagoon, the social commerce platform enabling its users to Connect, Share, and Earn, today announced it has been selected to participate in the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES 2017), held November 28-30 at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre in Hyderabad, India.

The 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit, announced by U.S. President Donald J. Trump in June of 2017, will connect more than 1,600 entrepreneurs and investors through networking, mentoring, workshops, and master classes. The Summit will be inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi, and Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, and will focus on women entrepreneurs, with the theme “Women First, Prosperity for All.”

“As a company with Indian roots, it is an honor to be selected to participate in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, taking place in our country for the very first time,” said Swati Dayal, co-founder and product & operations head, Sagoon. “We look forward to showcasing Sagoon as a growing startup with opportunities for investment, partnership, and collaboration. We are excited to be a part of GES 2017 and to make valuable connections that can help us pursue our goals.”

“Being selected to participate in the GES 2017 is a terrific accomplishment for Sagoon and one that we are very proud of. As the theme of this year’s summit focuses on women entrepreneurs, we’re also proud to be able to highlight our co-founder, Swati Dayal, and all that she has done to push Sagoon forward,” said Govinda Giri, co-founder and CEO, Sagoon. “Connecting with so many other entrepreneurs and investors is an incredible opportunity for us, particularly as our Regulation A+ fund raise comes to a close later this month. We look forward to showcasing all Sagoon has to offer.”

The Summit is being held in India for the first time since its inception by President Obama in 2010. It has previously been held in Washington D.C., Istanbul, Dubai, Marrakech, Nairobi, Kuala Lumpur, and Silicon Valley. It has become the preeminent annual entrepreneurship gathering in the world, empowering entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, and creative innovative products and services that will transform societies for a better tomorrow.

Sagoon solves a glaring problem in today’s U.S. social media landscape – U.S. social networks are not set up for ecommerce. Direct commerce between users and sellers and amongst users is prohibited, and users earn no financial rewards for being a direct source of revenue. There is also a missed opportunity to make gift cards, coupon offers, and discounts purely social.

Regulation A+ offerings provide an opportunity for the non-accredited general public to invest and own stock in the company. The company is currently accepting investments from public and institutional investors until November 30, 2017 and can be accessed through our website, where the Offering Circular is posted.
