Event Details

PuneConnect 2013, which brings to you the best of Pune’s technology – startups, and established companies – is happening this Saturday, on 23rd November from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Registration is free, but there is limited space, and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis so register now.

What to expect at PuneConnect?

The event consists of three parts – a demo room, where all the startups will first be demonstrating their products, an exhibition area, where established companies have paid stalls, and an on-stage session with a keynote address, a panel discussion, free time for every one to see the demos, followed by a startup shootout where 4 selected startups will pitch their product to a panel of judges from the industry, angel investors and VCs.

Here is the detailed schedule:

  • 9:30 – 10:00 – Registration
  • 10:00 – 10:30 – Keynote address by Mangesh Kale, MD of PARI Robotics, Pune
  • 10:30 – 11:15 – Panel Discussion: Getting SMACed: How Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud Technologies are reshaping Indian Manufacturing Industry
  • 11:15 – 12:30 – Startup Alley and Product Showcase
  • 12:30 – 1:30 – Startup Shoot-Out
  • 1:30 – 1:45 – Awards Ceremony
  • 1:45 – 4:00 – (Only by invitation) VC Roundtable

Startup Alley is a demo hall featuring Pune’s 20 most promising early stage startups, selected with a lot of difficulty, from 100+ submissions received, and Product Showcase will feature 20 booths by Pune’s more established technology companies. The Startup shoot-out will have 4 of the top startups presenting their pitch on stage to compete for the Pune Connect 2013 “Best of Show” Award.

In addition, you get to interact with the audience – consisting of people from SEAP, NASSCOM, MCCIA, Hinjewadi Industries Association, TiE-Pune,, PuneTech, and SME Joinup – pretty much anyone who matters should be there. And VCs and Angels. Don’t miss this event.

(Note: for regular attendees, the show ends at 1:30. There is a lunch + VC Roundtable afterwards, but that is by invitation only, for selected startups. If you’re a startup that’s interested in this, and haven’t yet applied, apply here.)
