India has slowly started to witness those 24 hour mega marathon, non-stop Hackathons — a concept though largely borrowed from the west, but fits in perfectly to the startup ecosystem in India. While hackathons continue to happen, you don’t really see a startup convention or a conference, running non stop for 24 hours, for two long days ! Welcome to Entrepreneur Cafe’s ‘Annual Global Convention’.
The Annual Global Convention 2015 would be a non-stop 24-hour event which will be focused towards bringing all stakeholders related to startup community i.e. experts, investors, mentors and entrepreneurs on a common platform.
Talking to us on the event’s USP over others, Budh Aditya Sengupta, AVP, Entrepreneur Café says,
Unlike other events, the focus of AGC 2015 is on interaction & we have curated the event in such a way that it will give an opportunity to participants to interact with experts.
We have Power Dinner wherein participants can meet their startup soulmate; Cocktail Party to ease everybody and increase the interaction; Bonfire to set up an informal yet discussion oriented environment and Champion’s Breakfast to let participants meet with experts & eminent personalities from all walks of life.
Along with this, we have sessions such as Shark Tank where 15 startups will get the opportunity to present & get their startup funded on-the-spot.
The event, which has 15+ confirmed speakers — including the likes of Mahesh Murthy; Rajnish Menon, Gen VK Singh (retd), Union Minister, Govt of India — promises to be one hell of a startup marathon, one that you just can’t give a miss. And just so that you actually don’t miss this one, you can get your event passes right here.
And yes, as you might have already guessed it, we are covering this event LIVE right from the very first minute to the end of that 24th hour — through live blogging, streaming and lots more. So if by any chance, you are not gonna make it to the event, pick up your smartphone and simply log on to the Tech Portal for live on-ground coverage.
Apart from coverage, we will also be looking out for startups — which our team finds technologically disruptive enough — for a feature on the website. So yeah, you have that opportunity too !
See you at the event folks. Ciao !
