A startups' mashup event, bringing together early stage startups, successful entrepreneurs, business/product leaders, incubation centers, angel investors and VCs together onto a common platform with the shared objective to spot, nurture and grow early stage startups. IN three parts:

Bootcamp: Startup-101 pedagogy- insights & experiences from accomplished entrepreneurs, investors and mentors from the startup eco-system.
Pitch for Funding/Acceleration (incubation): A formal pitch to an acceleration+incubation program for tech startups (IIIT-H's HydCubator) and to angel investors (Hyderabad Angel Network).

First things first. Register for the pitches. Two opportunities:

Very Early stage (with just a basic prototype): If you are a very early stage startup, pitch for the acceleration program at IIIT-H – HydCubator. A program offered by IIIT-H for tech entrepreneurs, with support from TiE Hyderabad Angels & ITsAP Product Forum. A two month residential acceleration program, where the startup team will be based at IIIT-H's incubation center (CIE). Will be provided advisory and guidance on the product, the biz opportunity, tech architecture, market opportunity validation et al, with easy access to other startups and entrepreneurs in the center. Experts/Entrepreneurs/investors will be invited every week to interact with and guide the startup. The refined pitch wand prototype will be presented to the angel investors (from HydAngels) at the end of the two months.
