Announcing Startup Weekend Hyderabad


Startup weekend is back in the city of Nawabs. After a fabulous event last time, this time we are back with more energy(and more prizes)
So come on, get your tickets before they sell out and get your startup dream started.
Since you are now at this page, you must be asking yourself, “Should I attend?”. To answer that question, let us ask you two questions:
1. Are you doing a startup?
2. Are you planning on doing a startup?
If your answer to any of the two questions above was “Yes”, then trust us ISB is the place for you to be on July 13th.
Get your tickets and give us a chance to show you what startups are all about.
Special thanks to Wadhwani Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (WCED)-ISB, for hosting the event.
Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event which focuses on building a web or mobile application which could form the basis of a credible business over the course of a weekend. The weekend brings together people with different skillsets – primarily software developers, graphics designers and business people – to build applications and develop a commercial case around them.

Startup Saturday Hyderabad - June 9th


Hi all,

SS Hyd/ June 2012
Theme- 'B2B(2C) or B2C?'
For consumer facing products, is B2B an opportunity or a dampener?

Many start-ups today face the dilemma of whether they should structure their products to sell to other companies who would in turn reach consumers, or to reach out to consumers directly. This session has speakers from start-ups across a variety of verticals who have faced this dilemma, so they can share their situation and their thought process that eventually led to a decision.

Any startups in the consumer or B2B space, or those with products, are invited. Pls do let one of us know if you are open to speaking and sharing your experiences.
