About

We are extremely excited to announce DemoDay2014-CHE by #StartupsClub, a new look, a new city and a new set of selected ideas. Before we go about to talking about this upcoming DemoDay, let us give a brief of what happened after DemoDay2013 & what changed.

The 5 ideas who got selected to present to the guest panel, 2 of them are in discussions 

1 of the selected idea, has been signed up with one of the biggies of the industry for his offerings 

2 members of Startups Club, moved ahead from idea to a startup, wherein their companies have been incorporated and are in Market Entry Stage

Startups Club is very closely working with Indian Angel Network and now will at regular intervals have exclusive meetings organised for our members with IAN

Ginserv, who have never gone out of Bangalore, would associate themselves with Startups Club to Chennai as well

Whats new this time? Why must you be a part of DemoDay2014-CHE? Why must you travel across cities for this event? Lets see if we can help you answer these questions.. 

DemoDay2014-CHE will now have VIT-TBI, GINSERV & Indian Angel Network associated with us from the idea shortlisting stage for those who register with us for presenting to the Guest Panel (All the three entities are incubation services plus options of Seed & Angel Investments)

StartupsClub has now launched FAS - Fund A Startup, an initiative wherein all 2000+ members of the Club will be contributing to this initiative, which will be collected in a "Contribution Box” in all meetings, wherein the BOX will be locked and sealed by one of the randomly chosen member and the Idea/Startup which gets selected by the Guest Panel on DemoDay2014-CHE will be funded right there, NO kick-backs, NO post event discussions, NO repayments, NO obligations, NO Claims. The Winner walks out the venue with the Prize money for his Idea/Startup

DemoDay2014-CHE participants (Registered Ideas/Startups, Stalls, Volunteers etc) will have the reach of more than 5000 eyeballs through the various on-line platforms plus an opportunity to reach to all members across cities

The tickets have been increased but, we have also kept the early bird offers which will enable you to get the tickets at a much discounted price, but, why have we increased the prices? The reason is... for an Idea/Startup Registration, the involvement of other partner entities, validation and involvement of the club is going to be much higher than what it was last time & for the visitors, we have ensured that you could network with the Guest Panel freely post the event and reach them out directly yourself.

The event has been organised at GRT, Convention Centre, which is centrally located. The traveling guests will have options of staying at any place of their convenience.

Finally, Last but not the least, with VIT-TBI coming in as our prestigious Co-Sponsors, we will be having road shows through various universities across Chennai & Vellore wherein Students will be educated about starting up early, through these road shows, we shall talk about the Registered Ideas, Our Stalls, Our initiatives and Our Sponsors & Partners

What is same as last year?

Registered Ideas will get free mentoring on structuring and presenting. Support will be provided by the Core-Team and the short listed, will be coached till the last minute for the presentation to the Guest panel, through 2 in-person sessions and 3-5 online mentoring sessions.

All associations (Sponsors, Stalls, Partners, Associates & Volunteers) will get exposure in the industry through various channels Being a whole day’s event, you can walk in at your convenient time and as long as you have your event wrist bands intact, you will be able to cater to your other appointments and still be apart of this event through the day.

Stalls will be able to showcase, market, sell and offer discounts to the Guest panel, the Visitors & other Participants Finally, the next time DemoDay happens, it will only be 2015, its our annual event.

Keeping all this in mind, we have our Early Bird offers starting now, Register Now to present your Idea/Startup to the Guest Panel with your Participant’s Pass or just pick your Visitor’s Pass and be a part of the 2nd edition of DemoDay.
