Startup Weekend- Maker Edition in less than 24 hours – Things to remember


We have less than 24 hours to kick off the Startup Weekend- Maker Edition, Bengaluru!

Here’s a few things to remember:

  • Think of some ideas you want to pitch. You will have 60 seconds to do a verbal elevator pitch of your idea – no ppts, or other aids. One idea per person!
  • Your idea cannot be your existing startup that has launched. Startup Weekend is where people gather to convert their ideas-in-their-minds into a physical-hardware form, take ideas and transform them into startups, not promote your existing startup.
  • Bring what you think you’re going to need to work, e.g. a laptop, paper, pens, mobile phone, etc.
  • If your idea doesn’t get enough votes, don’t worry. Join another team and work with others on their idea. You will believe what great teamwork can achieve in 54hrs. when you experience it yourself. We encourage you to be inclusive and not turn people away from joining your team unless your team size is over 5 people.
  • The Twitter Hashtag for Startup Weekend Mumbai will be #swblrmaker – Please use it when tweeting about the event.
  • If you purchased a student ticket, please bring a valid student photo id with you or you may be denied access to the event.
  • We need more “Enabler” so please pass on the word in your network and get them to register.
  • The event will be Wi-Fi enabled.
  • On Friday we will most likely end around 11:30 or Midnight so make sure you have travel accommodations in place. Startup Weekend cannot provide travel accommodations or taxis. This is your responsibility.
  • Dinner will be provided on Friday evening.
  • If you have a Tata Photon or other data card, bring it with you. You never know when you may need it.
  • Doors will open at 5:00pm on Friday- this will give time to start networking time!
  • We will start the event no later than 7pm. Come early, start early and leave early :)
  • Your first-port-of-call during the event shall be MAHESHA: +91 888 441 3308 | +91 98451 31949
  • Let’s make it an awesome event folks!

    Best regards,
    Organizing Team.
