This is my next. My next great adventure. In August, I will be in Bangalore, attending TechSparks, an event dedicated to Indian startups in the IT-scene. Focusing on software products, mobile and value added services, cloud computing and web 2.0, this conference will pull together the best of what is generally called „the new Silicon Valley“. Previously, there have been events in Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad; the final will take place on 19th August in Bangalore.
The event will be organized by YourStory, a network dedicated to social business, entrepreneurship and tech – you might as well call it the „TechCrunch of India“. Currently, it has roughly 250.000 visitors per month, and the numbers are increasing. For TechSparks, they found various sponsors, mainly big IT companies and Venture Capitalists – the interest of corporations shows the value of YourStory and projects like TechSparks. Their office will definitely be the coolest place on earth for innovative people who are interested in the new world.
Of course, I won’t travel alone: Wolfgang Bergthaler, who has been working with me on indische-wirtschaft.de for 18 months now, is already in Bangalore, working as the COO of YourStory. And Fabian Thobe, serial entrepreneur and one of the coolest people on the planet, will join us as well. Furthermore, I am looking forward to meeting a lot of other great people. And, finally, there is a bigger picture to the whole story… but don’t worry: I’ll tell you later.
