TechSparks Meetup – Be the One to Change the Billion
9 October, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
There is only one word capable of making any innovative mind located on indian soil squeal out in delight: TechSparks. Did you hear it? Told you. But that auditory delight is not in vain as TechSparks is ALL that it’s cracked up to be.
To provide a platform for young minds and innovative thought is a daunting task, one that YourStory, the brains behind the summit, has been courageously and successfully performing every year since its inception, 6 years ago.
This year however, TechSparks has decided to organize simultaneous meetups in 11 emerging startup cities around India, one of them being everybody’s favorite sunshine state – Goa. So if you’ve ever been addressed in monikers that fall along the line of ‘tech-wiz’ or ‘gadget-know-it-all’,
and happen to find yourself on the sandy beaches of Goa, gear up and head on down ‘cos this is the meetup of a lifetime!
Here is a brief explanation of the 3 hour meetup where, after the registration and opening keynote speech are done with, you can engage in a panel discussion hosted by Andorcid media founder, Prajyot Mainkar with an elite panel headed by Goa’s very own young entrepreneurs. This is followed by what you have been anxiously waiting for which is the Startup Pitch. Basically this is where you showcase your ideas to those around in the hope of impressing them. So look smart. You can register your application for the same here. And yes there is a prize at the end of it all, it is a competition at the end of the day. How does winning a free pass to TechSparks 2015 sound? More you ask? Ok. The winning team is also eligible to win an exhibit space worth Rs 2 lakhs along with 2 additional passes for the event. And the cake has just gotten sweeter.
