After the success of the Delhi RoundTable and the superb response to the Pune edition, YourStory.in, India’s leading online platform for startups and entrepreneurs, is bringing the next TechSparks™ Regional RoundTable to Chennai, a popular centre for learning and a rapidly emerging technology innovation hub in India.
TechSparks™ is a multi-city series of events designed to turn the spotlight on India’s finest product technology startups. It may be recalled that the previous edition, TechSparks™ 2010, was referred to as “India’s biggest product technology startup showcase” by a number of media outlets, with entries from more than 200 product tech startups across the country.
TechSparks™ 2011, a YourStory.in flagship event, is being presented by Intel and is supported by Google, IBM, Amazon Web Services and Sequoia Capital. Entries are currently being accepted for TechSparks™ 2011 and will be evaluated by a panel of experts. The top 20 startups, thus selected, will be showcased in the grand finale, scheduled to happen in August in Bangalore.
