Saraswat Chamber provides a platform for Saraswat community entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by creating business networking opportunities. Saraswat stalwarts from various fields attended the conclave. Former Union Minister Suresh Prabhu addressed the gathering. He shared his experiences and emphasised the need for networking. Srinivas Dempo from The House of Dempo was the Chief Guest of the conclave.  "Our family deities, or ‘Kuldaiwata’ give a natural bond within the community. This will act as a guiding force in the coming years for Saraswat Chamber," he said.

The keynote speaker was Ulhas Kamath, former Joint Managing Director of Jyoti Labs and the founder of UK & Co. He discussed the challenges that family businesses face in India, as well as the steps that must be taken to ensure that the community remains relevant as entrepreneurs in this rapidly changing world. He warned that job availability at the middle level will disappear and that only top and bottom rung opportunities will be available. "Technology will take over most of the middle-level jobs. The community has to be ready for this challenge by becoming job givers rather than job seekers," he said. He urged the community to develop more women as entrepreneurs to have more sustainability in businesses.

Saraswat Bank was the main sponsor of this event. In his address, Gautam Thakur, Chairman of Saraswat Bank, assured constant support for the activities of Saraswat Chamber. He also promised to work with the chamber to develop project funding options for its members.
