Last weekend was eventful at Unpluggd with scores of entrepreneurs, techies, investors and fellow startup community members coming together to unveil a landscape that’s only imaginable. Implying, only when you attend something like this do you realize with what pace the startup culture is evolving and what’s trending (this time around I gathered it was Angel funding 😛 ).
We were extremely proud to be one of the nine finalists among 550 nominations who had this golden opportunity to tell the world- “we exist”. We’ve been overwhelmed by the responses on the demo and believe it was worth being a part.
So in case you’re interested, here’s a short blurb on what to expect (and what not to) when attending one of such startup events AND being in the limelight.
We found ourselves mostly discussing the pain points we solve and got some amused looks when we spoke of the cutting-edge technologies we have in place. Some liked the patented statements we made during the demo and being bootstrapped earned respect. However there were some who wondered- “Err..so they provide Data Crawling services. Like a hundred other companies doing exactly this..”. I can’t help but answer here since it questions our worthiness demoing at Unpluggd :P.
