Zillions of Startups were running behind this exhibition and why they won’t be doing this because it was forecasted to be Asia’s largest exposition for the startup ecosystem, World Startup Expo (WSE).
Bringing together the most innovative and disruptive startups, along with C level executives from some of the top corporations, government agencies, incubators, investors, HNIs, VC funds, banks, students and technology companies across the world.
It featured a 3-day exhibition, a 2-day conference session, an award evening and a hackathon. Thought leaders, experienced entrepreneurs, investors and key policy makers were the part of this event.
Bangalore,known as the Silicon Valley of India hosted the first World Startup Expo.
Cocoon Ventures a Dubai-based venture capital firm brought for the first time this World Startup Expo to Bengaluru to bring the biggest, brightest, and innovative startups, technology providers, thought leaders, investors and influencers together on one platform.
The expo aims to bring the best of the disruptive and innovative startups executives from top notch government agencies to share tips. Besides these, the platform also hosted technology companies, banks, VCs, HNWIs and incubators.
How Bevy found WSE
Bevy-Everything Startup was also a part of this event and we were exhibiting with another 300+ Startup exhibitors. With the same zest and zeal, we were focusing on getting as much networks and nexus with others during these three days in WSE. This was one of the stupendous occasions, so Bevy was trying to behave with a bit of savoir faire.
Ideal conversation must be an exchange of thought
When you start your startup with an innovative idea and you get a chance to get a live feedback from more than 7000 people, you reach at fever pitch. This happened with us where we met hoard of people whose reaction matters to us.
People were giving us different feedback in their own ways, as I would not use the word ‘some’ but many of them were caught getting an eye on Bevy because it is a one stop platform for the startup ecosystem and we have created such an app whose major aim is to minimize the high startup failure rates in the startup orbit.
In WSE each company has pushed themselves beyond their uniqueness, and created clear strategies to stand out in that crowded marketplace.
We saw the reactions as well as counter responses from people. Many of them found our idea novel and innovative, so as there were vice-versa reviews also for the app which we will positively try to get overcome of it and use that feedback to strengthen Bevy’s backbone.
WSE was also a platform to initiate and build strong relationship for startups. Now, we are moving forward to connect with associations to help Bevy reach out the extra miles and on high level.
Beyond collecting feedback and setting up a network for our startup, Bevy thought of doing something different so that we could break the monotonous hours of the exhibitors. A ‘Shoutout’ was done on our Twitter page with #BevyShoutout, engaging more than 50 startups in a day who were exhibiting at WSE.
It was the moment, we were involved in conversation directly with the startups exhibitors. Everyone was determined to dispense their journeys and ideas of their startups. This exhilarating ‘Shoutout’ comprised just one rule in which the exhibitors had to explain their startup under 10 words which ended with fun sometimes. We met loads of startup on the same platform like Zwayam, Spark 10, ENE Social, Co-Founder Magazine and many others.
Ending my words
Three days journey of World Startup Expo-2016 ended with huge exposure and creating networks for all the startups.
This platform gave all startups the best experience. Boon for startups to share the same space and learn more with experienced and professional people. WSE left me astonished and am completely satisfied to be a part of it.
