Under the Radar Conference – Calling all Indian Startups

Posted on March 31, 2008. Filed under: Events | Tags: , |

Under the Radar is a conference series profiling early-stage innovation. The next conference is going to happen on June 2-3, 2008 at the Microsoft Campus in California. The categories and the selection criteria are clearly mentioned in their website. Startups needs to be quick on this because you have just 3 more days left to submit your company profile.

I am in touch with the organizers and they are genuinely interested in finding interesting startups in India and hence show the world that innovation happens outside the valley too!

I will be posting more updates on this as and then I get them. Please spread this word across all the startups through coffee clubs, unconferences and so on.

Ping me if you need anymore information on this.

So plan your talk/demo/presentation accordingly. If two people are going to take turns during the presentation, dont waste too much time during getting mic etc. Proto gives you a dry-run option, a day before the event. But do take even that seriously. Because the chances are same people in the panel might come on the next day as well. If they get impressed on the first day itself, you will have a genuine advantage during day two.
