The platform featured over thirty industry experts across seven engaging sessions. The event garnered an overwhelming response, with over 300 participants attending the first edition of ‘Building Bonds 2024.’ The event focused on the following key areas that also form Pidilite Ventures’ core investment thesis:

·         Home Care & Maintenance: Businesses that simplify the process of caring for and maintaining people's most cherished possession—their homes.

·         Contractor as a Customer: Solutions and services that cater to contractors in the building and interior space.

·         Home Improvement & Renovation: Products, solutions & services leading to an improved home; be it aesthetics or utility.

·         Arts & Craft: New-age and differentiated solutions within the arts and crafts space.

·         Smart/Green Building Materials: Innovators involved in revolutionary building material that are both environmentally friendly and intelligent.

Sanket Parekh, Director, Pidilite Ventures, said, “At Pidilite Ventures, our mission is to invest in fast-growing and innovative companies that have synergies with Pidilite’s core and adjacent businesses. The construction and home improvement categories are usually not associated with tech innovation, and with ‘Building Bonds 2024’ we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the innovators working in this space and bring more attention to their work. We look forward to seeing the next generation of entrepreneurs creating sustainable innovations, and adding value to their growth journeys, through our experience and expertise.”
