The first Startup Weekend Nagpur Bootcamp.

Startup Weekend Nagpur Bootcamp March 24th, 2015 Who doesn’t love a teaser that leaves you wanting for more? A mock pitching session was just the spark needed to ignite the spirit of a dreamer in the super cool participants of the first ever Startup Weekend Nagpur Bootcamp. This wasn’t like any other pitching session, the participants were first asked to write two words that came to mind when they heard the word ‘funny’. For obvious reasons they came up with the weirdest, most ridiculous stuff on the chart paper. This was just the beginning, the fun was yet to begin. These enthusiasts were now divided into teams of six, randomly, and were asked to choose their team leaders. The leaders now faced the challenging task of selecting two of these ‘funny’ words, think of a viable product based on these, and make a one minute elevator pitch. Suddenly, what began as a stage for eminent speakers had become a pitching ground, where began a series of awesome pitches with the crowd rooting for their sheer creativity and delivery. From ‘Mirchi Condoms’ to ‘GPL-Negative Feedback Website’  it was a fun ride of wits and innovation. These pitches were also scrutinized by an experienced panel of judges who pointed out the key points to be taken into consideration while making a pitch. Overall, it was a really educating session carried out in such a gaming fashion that everyone loved it. This is just the tip of the iceberg, register for Nagpur’s first Startup Weekend to be held from 27th-29th March 2015. Register at our website. Hurry up or stay behind.
