PhotoSparks is a weekly feature from YourStory, with photographs that celebrate the spirit of creativity and innovation. In this pictorial essay, we showcase some of the innovators exhibiting and speaking at the STARup 2017 conference and pitch summit in Bengaluru!

In the earlier 130 posts, we brought you a wide range of creative photographs from an art fair, world music festival, painting fair, telecom expo, art museum, mobile showcase, math museum, social hackathon, bookstore, co-working space, sensorium, international design week, flower show, outdoor ads, startup roadshow, computer museum, startup T-shirts, business cards, art therapy, startup festival, Diwali rangoli, Vesak, jazz festival, modern art gallery, ecopreneurs, painter-poets, health activists, eNGOs and digital innovators.

On four different levels of VR Bengaluru in Whitefield this weekend, startup pitches and investor ‘reverse pitches’ are drawing dozens of entrepreneurs, industry leaders and ecosystem players. In a creative twist on the usual venues for startup events, STARup 2017 is being held in a mall, gym and a pub, along with the co-working space Hive!

Parallel tracks cover sectors ranging from health-tech and fin-tech to ed-tech and AI. There is also a round of poker, and a guitar jam session with Teemeer ‘T-Man’ Chimulkar, tutor of Sonakshi Sinha and other celebrities. Founders and enabling service providers are exhibiting right at the entrance of the mall, drawing attention from curious onlookers and helping to bring startup culture right into the mainstream of urban lifestyle.

In this photo showcase, we present the teams from Total Talent Solutions, LexStart, BIDxprt, Vatika, Pi Green Tech, Founders Cube, Societe Generale Catalyst, Veloz, Just Amazin, 48 East, Smitch, FlipSpaces, and Miles Web. So what are you doing today to tell others that entrepreneurship is not just cool or happening, but possible and feasible?
