Collab House supports most of the start-up activities in the city. Collaborative approach that we adopt enables our ecosystem to do more with the existing resources. Collab House hence collaborates with Startup Saturday as a community partner to provide outreach and word across communities.
Startup Saturday Hyderabad is an initiative by Headstart network to provide entrepreneurs in each city with a monthly community driven forum that is structured in agenda but open in discussions. Startup Saturday Hyderabad provides a forum for entrepreneurs to discuss, present, network and learn from peers, prospective customers, adopters, partners and investors.
The April edition of Startup Saturday was organised on 9th of this month with a great line of speakers and an amazing group of people for panel discussion.

Every speaker had an inspiring story of their journey which they shared with the attendees. Narayana Peesapaty explained how social media has taken over the print and digital media. His project of edible cutlery couldn’t reach to the expected number of people though he was featured by most prominent News channels and New papers nationally, but a single video on Youtube has created a viral outreach. Which eventually created a multi-folded contributions than promised while crowdfunding campaigns in kickstarter and Ketto.

In his words he says ‘If we have hair then we could make any hair style’ addressing the huge potential of student communities in the city. Followed by tales of Sharath chandra and Jeevan Chowdary.
