Startup Weekend Chennai | CEG Edition (15 Feb – 17 Feb)

What is Startup Weekend Chennai?

The goal here is to build out a complete startup idea and examine its marketability and feasibility. Start the event with Friday night pitches and team creation, get down to business plan development on Saturday, and pitch your final prototype creation to the crowd and panel of experts on Sunday evening. Ideally you are ready to take your idea to the market right after Startup Weekend Chennai.Startupweekend in partnership with Goog for Startups logo. Techstars logo
