Opportunities in Cleantech (IT/analytics/internet-of-things) – with Infuse Ventures (Cleantech VC)

  • Date: Fri, 18 Jul 5:30pm – 7:30pm
  • Location: 5th Floor, A-Wing, MCCIA, ICC Towers, SB Road

Infuse Ventures, India’s largest early-stage cleantech VC fund, in partnership with MCCIA, TiE-Pune and POCC, would like to invite you for a unique event on Friday, 18 July 2014 at the MCCIA Trade Tower, Pune. The event will focus on the ‘breadth of entrepreneurial opportunities in cleantech’. While we will outline the ever-expanding boundaries of cleantech, we will also specifically focus on ‘the role of IT, data analytics and internet of things (IoT) in cleantech’.

Traditionally, the cleantech sector has been equated with extensive R&D, technology-heavy and project businesses that require huge capital investment. However, things have been changing. In the west, many different businesses have come up in the clean technology space that rely heavily on data capture, data sharing and analytics to enable energy and resource efficiency and promote sustainability in homes and across commercial and industrial set-ups. The importance of data and the ability to learn and act based on it is changing the paradigm of looking at the clean technology space.

We hope this session will throw open a new area of potential growth for entrepreneurs who are already in either the cleantech space or IT, data analytics and IoT space. Additionally, we hope this session will help you take a fresh look at your (or your company’s) current capabilities from a fast-evolving cleantech perspective. We believe that the cleantech opportunity is as immense as the web itself, since it increasingly touches every aspect of how we live, work and play.

At the event, you will also get an opportunity to listen to a few exemplary entrepreneurs who re-purposed or applied their non-cleantech capabilities to the cleantech field.

The event is free and open to everyone. No registration is necessary. The seating is on a first-come-first-seated basis. The Infuse team will be on hand on the following day, 19 July, for 1-on-1 meetings with any current or aspiring cleantech entrepreneurs.

Welcome to the first edition of the Deccan Ruby Conference to be held in Pune on 19th July, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency.

Ruby is fun and this is our idea of having fun while organising a conference. A one-day, single-track conference that starts early and ends late! The conference boasts of workshops and talks for both beginners and experts, a lavish party at a local brewery and a potential Futsal tournament among conference attendees! (After all the World Cup finals would have been just a week earlier). For people staying on till Sunday, we plan to organise a trip to Sinhagad (a fort near Pune that has some pristine scenery and a rich history that will leave you speechless). A good easy 1 hour trek for those who want more than just some football.

“Hou De Karcha” (Let there be expense)

  • Early bird tickets will go at Rs. 1,150
  • Standard tickets will be at Rs. 1,850.

“Hou De Shikshan” (Let there be education)

Pune being a student city (yes – there are about 150 colleges just inside the City!), in a very unique way, we are allowing Companies to sponsor students while getting access to hiring budding Rubyists. Read more about this in the Sponsorship Prospectus!

“Hou De Tota” (Let there be loss)

Welcome sponsors! More details in the Sponsorship Prospectus but here are the sponsor slabs:

  • Lai Bhari: Rs. 1,00,001
  • Bhari: Rs. 40,001
  • Abhari: Rs. 12,501

Note: Do not miss the 1 Re. “shagun” (good luck).

Pune Robotics Meetup: Robots/Raspberry Pi/Arduino Home Projects Demo

  • Date: Sat, 19 Jul 11:00am – 2:00pm
  • Location: Robofun, 205, Vision Galleria, Opp G-Mart, Pimple Saudagar

Bring your own Robot or any other project (on Raspberry Pi/ Arduino platforms) you might have developed and share your story with the group!!

This meet-up is for people who have built something interesting at home and are interested in displaying/ demo their product to a smaller audience first before going big for a quick and constructive feedback and share their experience/ knowledge with others who share similar interest.

I believe kids who are pursuing or want to pursue Robotics as their hobby can also benefit from such opportunities and so they are welcome to join too along with heir parents!!

About the Pune Robotics Meetup

This group is about giving a platform to all robotic enthusiasts and jointly find ways to promote this hobby across Pune. We often receive enquiries from parents about how to get their children started in robotics. ‘Does my child have to know a lot about programming in order to engage in robotics?’ ‘My child is only 6 years old. Is it too early for him to start doing robotics?’ The answer to these questions is ‘NO’. In fact, the appeal of robotics lies precisely in the fact that it is a sport for everyone, regardless of experience and age. One can find like-minded people across the world, ranging from young hobbyist in primary school extra-curriculum clubs to professional researchers in NASA robotics research lab. Perhaps, to many children, the world of robotics may seem to be complicated and mysterious. After all, the daily newspaper is filled with breaking discoveries in the world of robotics. Yet, robotics, at fundamental level, can be very simple. Do not hesitate to take your very first step into robotics—for it promises a journey of unending fun and discoveries!
