In50hrs the flagship idea-to-prototype event from The Startup Centre, has taken on a new avatar, with its learnings from the past four editions that were conducted in its city of origin, Chennai. The platform now moves to four different cities – Chennai, Pune, Bangalore and Delhi. The first event this year kickstarts in Chennai, followed by Pune this quarter.
How does this affect an entrepreneur?
There are plenty of entrepreneurs who have amazing ideas, but are reluctant to do anything about it because there is no nudge to get them to take that first step – to convert that idea into something that starts to work, the prototype.
In50hrs is a weekend event that brings together entrepreneurs with audacious ideas, kickass developers, and product designers together to build first version prototypes of the product idea.
Over the past four events, In50hrs hours has seen more than 200 participants, 100-odd prototypes being built and in its last count 20 startups that have emerged out of the same, with quite a few of them being student startups.
The event also seeks to seed some depth in the kind of ideas that are coming out of India. Opportunities around the mobile and Internet, leveraging the mobile subscriber base – with technologies such as NFC and augmented reality are still under-exploited. There are some large opportunities in the enterprise segment as well – pain points that will hopefully see solutions emerge at these events.
Registrations are open for Chennai and Pune. Early bird registrations for Chennai close on 6th July – this Friday. So hurry.
