Bhubaneswar- Groww, a leading investment platform that allows zero commission investing in mutual funds, recently conducted ‘Ab India Karega Invest: Bhubaneswar Chapter’ – an interactive event raising financial awareness in the capital city of Orissa. The event, which saw active participation from aspiring and seasoned millennial investors alike, was held on 17th January 2020.
The two-hour event covered an array of topics, ranging from benefits of mutual fund investments, dos and don’ts of investing, and prospects of India’s mutual fund industry. It was kick-started with seasoned investors sharing tips and tricks of mutual fund investing. This was followed by an interactive session, where participants were given a chance to ask questions and clear their doubts. The overarching idea behind this initiative was to break common investing myths and help young investors make well-informed investment decisions.
Sharing his insights, Lalit Keshre, Co-founder and CEO, Groww, said, “Groww, as the name suggests, is a platform that helps people grow financially. Today, Groww has more than 40 lakh registered users on its platform, indicating rapid growth as well as popularity among young investors.

Our platform has over 1 lakh users from Bhubaneswar alone. ‘Ab India Karega Invest: Bhubaneswar Chapter’ turned out to be a roaring success and we are looking forward to hosting similar events in the city.”
The first edition of ‘Ab India Karega Invest: Bhubaneswar’ saw a massive turnout, with hordes of people attending the event from even outskirts of the city. As expected, millennials and Gen Z accounted for the majority of participants. The interactive session proved to be particularly fruitful as aspiring and amateur investors presented some important questions regarding mutual fund investing before the panel.
