Pune, the melting pot of startups, has Regional RoundTable up its sleeves (June 11, tomorrow, 3 pm)
Come tomorrow, as the clock ticks 3 pm, we will have a startup frenzy up its sleeves in Pune. The TechSparks 2011 Regional RoundTable, a thought leadership initiative of YourStory, is in its second edition. Each city has a character and Pune especially has a distinct startup character, leaning towards technology. Druvaa, the laptop backup service provider, and Persistent Systems, an outsourced product development company in the top league, are from Pune. We are hosting the roundtable in Dewang Mehta Auditorium of Persistent Systems.A search on Google throws interesting results on startups in Pune. A sample here. Innovation is another pseudonym for technology startups from Pune. That’s why we said each city has a distinct character. Home to reputed educational institutions, Pune seems to have innovation in its DNA. The proximity to the commercial capital, Bombay, only adds to its charm. YourStory is excited to enter this lovely city through Regional RoundTable.
If you are a technology entrepreneur in the proximity of Pune, you cannot afford to miss four hours of exciting action, of inspiration, of education and of networking. Although we don’t promise an elaborate spread on the plate, we do promise a lot to your grey cells in the brain. And filling up your plate is not our agenda anyway.
Listen to two keynotes, each with a character of its own. These two entrepreneurs have dared, to say the least. V.S.S. Mani from JustDial and Kailash Katkar and Sanjay Katkar from QuickHeal will walk you through their journeys as entrepreneurs and what made them a name worthy of attention. Amazon Web Services evangelist Janakiram will throw light on benefits of the Cloud for startups in a workshop. Then an eminent panel will give you tips on go to market strategies. And you will have a plenty of time to throw questions at the panel. So don’t miss this golden opportunity!
