TechSparks city meetups: unraveling startups for the next billion


The world’s keen to discover the next billion digital users, and what better place than India to engage this new billion. Over the years we at YourStory have been engaging with compelling startup products and services, many of which began out of cities like Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai. But innovation is not the sole preserve of big cities alone. We believe innovative ideas from other cities too could be a game-changer for the emerging billion and become our true engines of growth.

In the run-up to India’s largest entrepreneurship summit, TechSparks 2015, and its theme of 'Technology for the Billions’, we are organizing simultaneous meetups in 11 emerging startup cities of India. During these meetups, we will also be engaging with various startup communities and those belonging to sectors such as mobile, commerce, healthcare, finance, education, enterprise and grassroot innovation.

These 3-hour meetups will include a keynote and 5 startup pitches at each location, along with networking and hi-tea. The winning team at each meetup will get a free pass to TechSparks (October 29-31st) and will also be eligible to win an exhibit space worth Rs 2 lakhs along with 2 additional passes for the event. Register for the pitch here.
