It’s the time in India’s startup ecosystem when it pretty much feels like 2006. Funding is down and so are the sentiments.
But then, these are the times when great companies are born and frankly, times like these also push away tourist entrepreneurs and investors.
This UnPluggd, we are bringing you entrepreneurs / doers that speak ‘courage’ and ‘guts’ – not just from the tech industry, but a wide spectrum of industries and walks of life. And in the process, inspire ye all to think beyond your current constraints.
We believe that entrepreneurs need to learn a LOT from ‘real world’ and it’s time we bring that change. Here is how UnPluggd will unfold (we will start sharing speaker details from April 20th onwards).
Part 1 : ProductGeeks
The Day 1 of UnPluggd (June 24th) is heavily focused on areas that founders need a lot to learn on – Product management, branding, marketing and sales.
Networking evening (June 24th / 7 PM onwards) will see 200+ founders and ~50 investors (angels included). Expect a very focused networking this time around.
Part 2 of UnPluggd (June 24th) is going to be a day full of stories on courage, guts, startup failure lessons and everything that UnPluggd has always stood for – an unmatched content and sharp talks.
Like every edition,10 highly curated startups will launch at the conference (the application form starts April 18th).
