HeadStart 2009

Its HeadStart time again!!

For the uninitiated: HeadStart is an annual event, held at Bangalore, for Startups. Co-located along with the academic conference Compute (which has backings of ACM Bangalore and big sponsors like HP, IBM, Infosys, Rediff etc…)

What happens at HeadStart is that, few of the nominated products are selected for several tracks like Internet, Mobile, Enterprise etc (typically 5 for each of the tracks). People behind the chosen products – individuals or companies are allowed to demonstrate their product to the audience.

The audience has lot of experts(been-there-done-that kind) in every track and also a lot of potential investors (VCs) and of course potential partners in other Startups.

It was our privilege to have been selected for the Internet track in the last event (the inaugural one HeadStart 2008) held at IISc, Bangalore and over there we got a chance to showcase our travel search engine – 90di.com/travel.

Our experience has been that the organizers of HeadStart are a bunch of very dedicated and enthusiastic folks. And they are doing a very nice service to Startups, like ours.

So, Startups looking for opportunities to present their stuff and ideas to a very elite audience. Go for it. Guess, time is there till November end (just a few weeks left) to nominate your product/company.
