The event consists of three parts – a demo room, where all the startups will first be demonstrating their products, an exhibition area, where established companies have paid stalls, and an on-stage session with a keynote address, a panel discussion, free time for every one to see the demos, followed by a startup shootout where 4 selected startups will pitch their product to a panel of judges from the industry, angel investors and VCs.

Startup Alley is a demo hall featuring Pune’s 20 most promising early stage startups, selected with a lot of difficulty, from 100+ submissions received, and Product Showcase will feature 20 booths by Pune’s more established technology companies. The Startup shoot-out will have 4 of the top startups presenting their pitch on stage to compete for the Pune Connect 2013 “Best of Show” Award.

In addition, you get to interact with the audience – consisting of people from SEAP, NASSCOM, MCCIA, Hinjewadi Industries Association, TiE-Pune, PuneStartups.org, PuneTech, and SME Joinup – pretty much anyone who matters should be there. And VCs and Angels. Don’t miss this event.
