TechStars Start-up Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can validate their start-up ideas and learn to turn them into a real business. On an average, half of Start-up Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds. It’s a great opportunity for those looking for co-founders or to work in a start-up. At the Revstart’s event, mentors have been curated to include subject matter experts, recently funded founders and experienced investors.
Happening on 8 – 10th March’19, the event kicks off at 5 pm on Friday with a Keynote by Mr. Sanjiv Bikchandani, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in India founder of Info Edge (the first Dot Com IPO) sharing his journey as an entrepreneur and a successful investor. This will be followed by open mic pitches, where attendees get one minute to introduce themselves, pitch their idea and name their ask. On Saturday teams will start working with mentors on their business plan, validating their ideas, practicing Lean Start-up Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday there will be a Pitch Clinic to prepare for the final presentations. Participants will present the plan to marquee judges like Mr. Girish Shivani-Yournest, Ms. Padmaja Ruparel-IAN and Mr. Shailesh Vikram-MassiveFund, receiving valuable feedback, potential funding which can also include access to RevStarts Incubation Programme.
