The venue of the festival was close by to Collab House so it was a pleasure to coordinate with volunteers dropping by and simple things like helping with printouts.
It was really like a festival mood at Collab House on days before the event. All the startups, communities were actively preparing for their participation, working on designs, planning activities, printing posters, sorting 100’s of business cards, engaging their personal teams. Imagine a close family wedding and how all the family members get excited and on work on it. The August Fest was one of that kind. The whole event was for the startups, for the city.All startups big and small got to get involve and were provided a platform.
Reading about the stories of Silicon Valley and the likes and how you could bump into amazing people in random ways. At the event, one of the speaker asked to get a printout of his slide deck. We had to come to Collab House and got it printed, just to realise it was Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, a project initiated by Elon Musk.
The conference was filled with ultimate set of events and discussions engaging most brilliant minds of India. All the stages including the Main, Interactive and creative stages had some amazing activities round the clock. They had Inspirational speeches, Startup pitches, Design Ideas, Fun events, etc. The whole convention centre was vibrating with energy and excitement.
Every startup housed in Collab House, viz. EngineersHub, MakerClub, RideOnCab, Memilog, 3Ding had their presence at the fest. Their stalls and demo pods were put up to explain their idea to the innumerable number of attendees.
August Fest 2015 was the most trending topic offline and online among Indian startup community during that weekend.
