If your start-up is located in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru or Hyderabad, then it's time to take note of Startup Saturday (SS), a platform that can help you address all the teething issues that are part and parcel of running a start-up.
Startup Saturday, the Headstart Network's monthly initiative to address entrepreneurial concerns related to starting up takes place every second Saturday of every month in all the five cities mentioned above. The forthcoming edition, to be held on 12 September 2009, also has a lot to offer.
Many veterans from the technology world, venture capitalists and other domain experts will be present across locations, to counsel, share and advise young entrepreneurs on how they can deal with issues related to funding, taxation, IP (intellectual property), corporate governance, etc.
This month's theme for Bengaluru and Delhi is "Start-up Laws". Topics like 10 legal 'must-knows' for a start-up, Legal issues while starting up, et al, will be discussed. Kolkata edition will address subjects like 'The IT/ITeS Industry and the ecosystem of Kolkata and its near future'. While the Mumbai edition will focus on funding options (angel/VC/incubators), the Hyderabad edition will have a discussion on the factors that make Hyderabad a perfect destination for product start-ups.
Another highlight of the event is the product showcase element that allows innovative start-ups to present their offering to other start-ups, investors and the media. Many young entrepreneurs take this opportunity to reach out to other peers in the eco-system and share best practices, which they have formulated over time, out of their experiences.
So, a lot is in the offing!
