Pune StartUp Fest has 7 major zones:
1. Technical Zone
Google’s founders Larry Page & Sergey Brin transformed the way we look at the internet today. Companies develop new technologies that satisfy the demands of consumers and businesses, or integrate existing technologies creatively and innovatively. This zone is dedicated to such startups.
2. Social Zone
Social entrepreneurs combine commerce and social issues in a way that improves the lives of people connected to the cause. They don’t measure their success in terms of profit alone – success to social entrepreneurs means that they have improved the world, however they define that.
3. Agriculture Zone
The Agriculture Industry employs about 40 percent of the world population. This sector is influencing many entrepreneurs and is creating a wave of Agri-Tech based startups.
4. Lifestyle Zone
Unconventional solutions to everyday problems. Innovation to sustain livehood. A quick fix or tweak that can ease lives of various individual. Everyone wants a healthy hassle free life, these startups will make it the perfect enabler.
5. Student Startups
Bill Gates. Mark Zuckerberg. They’re self made billionaires who made their fortunes in tech and they started their businesses while they were still students. There are no boundaries to being an entrepreneur, but they never stopped believing in themselves.
6. Startup Internship
Working for a Startup can be more valuable than a Fortune100 company. A student with little proficiency might end up bagging the Internship which will add value to their career at a very early stage. Interns bring in a lot of energy and are more competitive than a regular hire at times.
7. Investor Zone
Startups need a catalyst to accelerate their development. Seed investment, Angel Funding, Connections, Mentorship are much needed attributes from an Investor. They support as a backbone to the entrepreneur.
We also have dedicated mentors who will guide students who just have an idea and don't know how to proceed further.
We are conducting the following events for students:
