Announcing UnPluggd Summer Edition 2017! #BloodyAwesome

Well, winter is almost gone but the funding winter is definitely going to stay.

“Shutdown”

“Layoff.”

“F*&#*dup”

are the most commonly used words to describe the current state of Indian startup ecosystem. Of course, this is all part of the game and was much needed to clean the ecosystem.

But then, it’s time like these that separate the heroes (and heroines) from mere mortals!

The ones who have the strength to persevere and endure in spite of bad market conditions.

The ones who will continue to grow and fight competition irrespective of negative sentiments from the ecosystem (esp media).

The ones who refuse to give up.

The ones who fight harder and come back stronger after every setback!

The ones who are driven by first principles and ready to learn / adapt.


We are extremely proud to announce the next edition of UnPluggd, which like the earlier editions will focus on deeper content and actionable insights on building great products and sustaining during tough times!

Two Days of UnPluggd Summer Edition

On to it’s 15th edition (man!!), UnPluggd conf is of 2 days.

Day 1 (May 19th) is purely dedicated to ProductGeeks, i.e. lots of actionable talks on growth hacking, marketing and related workshops.
We strongly believe that the ecosystem needs to talk more about products than funding. It’s time to build great products – and that’s what ProductGeeks conf will be all about.

Focused sessions with product managers, marketers on how to build great products! By the end of the day, you’d be transformed either in to an exceptional Super Sales Soldier, Product Marketing Maverick or an Invincible Growth Hacker!

Day 2 (May 20th) : Well, that’s your typical UnPluggd day. Lots of serious gyaan, lessons from bootstrappers, lessons from failures, things that aren’t obvious (like this) and 10 startup launches (selected from over 500+ entries).

Here is your chance to meet some of the biggest and brightest Startup superheroes of our generation.
They are ‘around’ in spite of all the challenges they have faced and have a few things to share!

You wouldn’t want to miss this if you’ve got your startup gene activated!

More details in the next few days (agenda/speakers etc), but be assured that it will be one hell of an event!

UnPluggd has always been about actionable insights and zero gyaan. Our speakers are carefully curated and we ensure that you get to learn a LOT from UnPluggd.

Unlike others, we treat networking as a byproduct (it will happen by the virtue of interesting people being present at UnPluggd) – the focus always is amazing content and energetic audience.
