iWeekend Hyderabad, 6-8 September 2013 at BITS Hyderabad, helps entrepreneurs form a team, build a business plan, a prototype and pitch it to angel/early-stage investors in just 48 hours. Our events are targeted towards technologists, designers, marketers, content writers, finance & legal professionals who are looking to start their own business/social venture or want to work in a start-up.
We believe that there is no better way to network and meet other restless minds than by working with them side by side for two full days. iWeekend is ideal for entrepreneurs looking to get started and for professionals and freelancers looking to broaden their horizons while taking on a challenge and collaborating in a project they like. The final outputs of the event include a basic business plan, a possible team, a prototype and a demo.
