Weekend Musings – Startup City, Bangalore

Visit and Like JainMatrix FB or Follow on JainMatrix Twitter for reports.

This weekend I visited a conference in Bangalore called Startup City. This is apparently an annual phenomenon, and I was frankly surprised at the energy, the excitement and the talent on display here.

The stalls were dominated by software product & service companies, plus Ecommerce, hardware, networking and devices firms, but there were also a good spattering of services cos catering to advertising, jobs, accounting, automobile, transportation etc.

In addition to the stalls where one could understand each one’s offerings, there were:

  • A keynote by Ashok Soota on beginning an entrepreneurial journeys
  • Structured ‘knowledge’ sessions with established firms sharing trends and ideas
  • Presentations by start-ups in a hall where they spoke in 5-7 minute sessions, and
  • Meet the Venture Capitalist sessions where the VCs and start-ups had one on one sessions for funding.

The VCs were all over the place evaluating ideas and looking for the next ‘big idea’ to fund.

One came away from this conference blown away by the dynamism and energy of the participants. May a thousand flowers bloom ……
