iWeekend revisits Pune..
iWeekend is an intensive and innovative experience that brings together talented entrepreneurs and professionals of different profiles to present ideas and collaboratively bring these ideas to reality by developing a business plan, a prototype and a presentation, all in one weekend.
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.
iWeekend Pune will be held at Symbiosis College of Arts & Commerce, SB Road, Pune from 14th – 16th June, 2013.

Think big; start small: It is advisable to start small and bootstrap in the early stages of the inception of ideas.

Having the Biz plan and getting the idea validatedb. Talking and effectively communicating the idea with relevant stakeholdersc. Ways to go about gathering the relevant resourcesd. Committing to deadlines2. Relevant area of interest: For instance, if your area of interest is mobile apps and you want to create a new app., try having a focused approach in identifying the problems to niche, in various stages from development to going live. Most importantly, understanding the complete business cycle (i.e. the segment, challenges, prospective customers, and ways to monetize) for any venture will be an important ingredient to success or failure.3. Research, research, research: Taking cues from the above instance, you will get the thousand feet view of what, how and where to scout for your required list of resources related to mobile apps venture. Clarity on in-source vs. out-source, internal funding vs. external funding should be key points to work on. Trust me, all the number crunching; idea scrutiny will be worth it.
