Startup Festival in Bangalore

Today marked the launch of a Startup Festival in Bangalore – a weekend of social, cultural, educational, professional and entertainment festivities celebrating Bangalore as the startup capital of India (http://www.startupfestival.in/). Taking place in different neighborhoods over four days, the festival aims to bring together entrepreneurs, artists, government, business, academia and investors in order to help push Bangalore from the 19th most entrepreneurial city in the world into the top 10.

The program for each day includes talks and workshops given by successful entrepreneurs, networking opportunities, evening pub crawls as well as art festivals showcasing upcoming artists, writers and musicians.

I’m pretty intrigued by the concept and am definitely impressed by the creative spirit of Bangalore. Only stopped by the neighborhood art festival today but looking forward to seeing what the rest of the weekend holds in store!
