The journey of Demo nights started 4 years ago when we organised a single event in Bangalore to give startups an opportunity to pitch to get valuable feedback. While those percentages have been pretty stable over the years, this time we went ahead and hosted the first edition of Beta weekend in association with Google Cloud Program.
While the Startups that get to pitch at the demo day are the center of attention, we had something for everyone. We organized a panel discussion on "Building Innovative Organizations - Reality, Challenges & the way forward" that would uniquely be able to cater to your requirements as an entrepreneur and give your skills that are much needed to further your journey. We had Mr. Abhay Tandon (Program Manager, Target Accelerator), Mr. Vivek Prakash(CTO, HackerEarth), Mr. KC Ayyagari (Program Manager, Google Cloud Startup Program), give-in pretty interesting insights to provide inspiration, perspective and knowledge.
To add to this, Google credits and one day passes to try out TechHub were given to startups enrolling in the Google Startup program.
We kick-started off the Beta Weekend with a welcome note- The story of TechHub so far! We also had KC share the tools, techniques and everything awesome about Google Cloud.
And then we had the panel discussion on "Building Innovative Organizations - Reality, Challenges & the way forward".
