BITS Spark Hyd Coffee Meetup

BITS Spark Hyd Coffee Meetup was a successful one with around 45 people turning out for the event. It was a good mix of attendees and spanned from Senior and experienced people, young entrepreneurs who are running their companies, people planning to start up and also current students. The venue was splendid.

The event was led by Mr. Satish Gupta ( 1961-66 ) , co-founder of TIE Angels and Sen Sen Networks and I assisted him. We introduced Spark and gave details about important dates and action items. There was enthusiasm among the audience to know more about Spark and the initiatives that are in store for them.  Few people offered to volunteer for organizing more such meetups.

One very important suggestion that came up was that we need to have a system to assist/advise people who are on the verge of starting up and need that final push. Few people gave suggestions about what are expectations from the future Coffee Meetups.

Thanks a lot Satish for leading the day and also taking out time to help the youngsters through your suggestions and advise. Thank you Raju and Sanjay for getting us such an awesome venue. Thanks to all the attendees for proving that BITSAA Hyd Chapter is active. Thanks especially to OP Jagetiya, Eashwar, Dr. Lalita for taking out time. I hope, with your help, Hyd Chapter should stay active and many more startups come from Hyderabad.
