Startup Weekend heads to Hyderabad
Opportunity for Hyderabadis to create an all-new startup in just 54 hours

Hyderabad|India|July'2012: The land of nawabs is going to see some intense startup action as Startup Weekend heads to Hyderabad on July 13th-15th at ISB. Started last year Startup weekend has already made its presence felt in Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai and is now coming back for a second stint in Hyderabad.

Startup Weekend gives an opportunity to industry professionals, students, and entrepreneurs to invest a weekend creating a startup from scratch. Ideas are pitched on Friday evening and by Sunday evening the teams formed amongst the participants find themselves pitching a final product / prototype to the judging panel. Some even have paying customers by Sunday.

Mobile apps, Web Apps, Healthcare reforms or even a social network- Startup Weekend has seen individuals form teams over a weekend and deliver extra-ordinary results. For a student or an industry professional contemplating a startup, this becomes a platform to test their ideas, experience a startup or simply a productive break from their routine lives. For entrepreneurs, this can be a testing ground for new ideas, a refreshing change or perhaps the opportunity to create an all-new startup in just 54 hours as well as an opportunity to find co-founders and potential teammates for a startup.

This time there are special offers for participants from the premier incubators in Hyderabad. Both ISB and IIIT-H, CIE have said they will incubate promising ideas presented at the startup weekend event. This could provide a much needed boost to the startup community in Hyderabad.

Like last time, Ozonetel systems is helping in organizing the event along with the help of Inforica. ReachoutHyderabad.com is its online media partner.

Well known VCs and Angels including Indian Angel network have agreed to help in judging the ideas and mentoring the participants. You can learn more about the event by visiting http://hyderabad.startupweekend.org.
