Last call for those of you who want to reach out to the smartest and serious breed called Indian Entrepreneurs.
We have couple of sponsorship slots available and we are freezing the entire story by next week – so if you are a business in the business of startups/SME, do get in touch asap.
No shit – this is THE event you want to be seen at!
Most importantly, we have slabs for companies that wants to demo their product/service at the venue stall. This is apart from the nomination process we covered earlier – this is to showcase your cool stuff to an audience that matters. Connect with us for more details (email: ashish at NextBigWhat.com, pratyush at NextBigWhat.com).
- As far as attendee registration is concerned, early bird offer ends October 10th (i.e. 2 days left).
- Startups who nominated before October 1st have already received the status update (sent last night).
- Those who nominated after October 1st – they will receive the update by this Sunday (October 10th).
- Those who have made it, you will receive detailed questions from us on your business. Your answer will be sent to the selection panel (will be shared with you).
The second round of battle has begun. Those who have made it – start preparing for the fun ride. We have selected 30 startups and they will have to compete with each other for the final stage (to be judged by a panel).
Those who couldn’t make it – please do understand that this is not a reflection on your startup/business. We took a lot of factors into consideration on which you might / might not have control (e.g. founding date, revenues made till date etc.). We greatly respect the effort that you put in to send your applications – more importantly the leap of faith you took to start in the first place. In some cases we have earmarked you for the next year – when we do believe you WILL make it big.
Lastly – the Pluggd.in team (and we believe a lot of our readers) are always there to help you grow and be the next big thing. Lets make this a continuous engagement rather than a one off event (which this surely is not). We have already sent out special discount codes to you guys – we sincerely want you guys to attend the event and make the most of it (I am personally inviting active angel investors/groups to attend the event and interact with as many startups as possible).
Update on Speaker List
The list will be announced very soon.
We already have 4 confirmed speakers –right from kids building million dollar enterprise business to Grown ups building global business from India. As always, expect interesting sessions in a pure UnPluGGd format – candid and honest.
Of course, no panel discussions – we hate them. Don’t you?
» Finally, Call to Action:
- Reserve your seat asap (at our ticketing partner site). The early bird discount code is “EARLYBIRD” (without quotes).
- Help us spread the word. This is an event for entrepreneurs and we want everybody to benefit from it. Tell your friends about the event.
- Volunteer – If you wanna volunteer, be on the ‘other side of the fence‘, do write to us (ashish at NextBigWhat.com, pratyush at NextBigWhat.com).
The UnPluGGd Team.
