For two days, the Centre for Entrepreneurial Leadership, BITS Goa and Enactus, gather young professionals to build the future of entrepreneurship in India. The Goa-based Coalescence conference aims to encourage a wide variety of entrepreneurial ideas, provide hands-on experience through workshops as well as motivate future think-tanks through the event.
The program is divided into a number of workshops, competitions, speeches and panel discussions. As part of the conference, startups will be able to compete and present their ideas to a panel of experts from various industries. Last year, apart from getting an opportunity to promote its services to a wide range of potential customers/users, the winners of the competition received cash prizes, seed funding and access to a network of the nations’s biggest VCs in India.
In addition, attendees will be able to take part in two different workshops. While one focuses on how to build your business, the other one is about pitching to investors. Furthermore, participants will hear experienced entrepreneurs such as Rahul Yadav, co-founder of housing.com, speaking, as well as be able to join the conference’s hackathon.
Another highlights of the program at Coalescence is the event’s Skill(ED) Up. As part of Skill(ED), participants can showcase their entrepreneurial skills. If attendees have a break-through idea that solves a real problem, or if they are top-notch coders translating ideas into reality, then this the chance for them to get attention and seek contacts in the Indian tech industry. Furthermore, participants of Coalescence will be able to join the event’s Startup Expo, where young professionals can look for interesting internship opportunities.
Coalescence’s ticket prices start at ₹ 250 onward. To take part in Coalescence 2015, you can register here.
