With a slogan “Make Calcutta relevant again”, Innovators Over Coffee, a group of young entrepreneurs determined to bring back the erstwhile glory of Kolkata, hosted its ninth interactive session.
The event included Meghdut Roychowdhury, founder of MCRA and chief innovation officer of Techno India Group; Dr Dipanjan Nag, PhD, MBA, CLP, RTTP, professor of practice, Rutgers University; digital content creator, Indrajit Lahiri; restaurateur Rajeev Paul, and Subhashis Dutt, founder of Bengal Business Council and owner of Mohendra Dutt and Sons.
“The city has long been associated with creativity, sports, and a high standard of living in all conceivable sectors. With a series of discussions, Innovators Over Coffee aims to restore Kolkata’s glory. This is an effort to find new Calcutta symbols across all professions and to celebrate the city like never before,” said Meghdut Roychowdhury.
While a chat on intellectual property between Dr Dipanjan Nag and Meghdut Roychowdhury covered the first half, the second half witnessed a panel discussion on the current scenario of food vloggers and the restaurant industry. The conversation emphasised the value of intellectual property in assisting consumers in making knowledgeable decisions regarding product security, dependability and effectiveness.
During the second half, food vlogger Indrajit Lahiri and restaurateur Rajeev Paul talked about and debated on the role of food vloggers in the present restaurant business and their alleged unethical practices. “There are unethical and ill- practices by both sides – restaurants and digital content creators – but that doesn’t make the entire industry bad,” said Lahiri.
