Startup Weekend is a 54 hour event starting on a Friday evening with anyone pitching a startup idea. The crowd of 100 or so attendees (a mix of hackers, creative and business people) then vote on the best pitches. About 15 teams are formed around the best ideas which then work through to Sunday evening. The best startups are awarded prizes ranging from cash to in-kind support from companies.The event is open to anyone interested in the local entrepreneurial community, and it puts them in a setting where anything is possible.
For the first time in a Hyderabad which is part of the new state Telangana. With the new Telangana government also showing a lot of interest in Startups, this event provides a solid foundation for all aspiring entrepreneurs.
Around 100 aspiring entrepreneurs(70 non-student and 30 students) are expected to take part in the 54 hour startupmarathon. Startup Weekend is an adrenalin rush of epic levels from the first pitch through to the last presentation. Coming in alone with an idea on Friday night and leaving on Sunday evening with a startup company, and a bag full of new network contacts is a unique experience only found at a Startup Weekend.
The weekend is being hosted at ISB, Hyderabad. We would like to thank ISB for hosting SW. We expect in the region of 100 entrepreneurs turning up for the weekend. With these attendance levels, we anticipate between 10-15 “mini startup companies” being formed with the statistic of 1/3 managing to survive after 6 months.

In the past 3 years, 500+ startups have started & 15,000+ entrepreneurs have been inspired. Teams have even started to generate revenue during the 54hr event, and others have even gone on to raise funds from Business Angels or Venture Capitalists. None of these numbers take into account the networking, on-going professional relationships, and amazing experience that take place at every event. Startup Weekend’s motto: Build Community. Start Companies. No Talk. All Action.
