High on work, quiet with words - TechSparks Chennai to showcase all sides of Chennai entrepreneurs

While Bangalore remains the heart of the IT revolution in India, it first came through the gates of Chennai. Global technology players first set fort in India by the banks of the Marina Beach sipping on strong filter kapi. While the forts gradually moved over to Bangalore, Pune and Delhi, it left behind a wealth of highly skilled individuals with the business acumen to run a company. So successful were these people that this was the city that gave us Bharat Matrimony and Zoho.

Today, while cities like Bangalore hog the startup limelight, Chennai has a strong entrepreneurial community which is growing as you are reading this. World class innovations in the field of technology are being made in the streets of Anna Salai and Adayar. Chennai entrepreneurial community is a quiet one, content with going about their business without much fuss.

We at YourStory.in, wish to showcase this unique startup hub and it is our next stop in our TechSparks journey. Join us as we bring some seasoned veterans as well as some of the most promising tech startups from Chennai to the rest of India. Murugavel Janakiraman, Founder & CEO, BharatMatrimony will be gracing the stage of TechSparks Chennai with his keynote address.
