Proto.in is gonna be huge!

Proto.in is a simple concept: it’s a clone of the hugely successful Demo conference, in India, run on a not-for-profit basis (for reference, the demo conference costs companies that choose to participate SERIOUS money). No powerpoints are allowed: you have ten minutes to demo a working product.
The list of companies that have been accepted is being kept under wraps until the event itself. I’ve talked to dozens of Indian entrepreneurs in the last month: I predict that there will be cool wireless stuff being demoed for sure!
Startups in India don’t have the nifty ecosystem that silicon valley companies do, so this is a valuable opportunity for anyone with working code to show their stuff to a room full of venture capitalists. Hopefully, press attention and possibly funding will follow.

    It was quite easy to get the attention of the VCs and the Media. Now managing them, now that is what is taking quite a bit of skill 🙂
    So far it seems like it will be quite an interesting event.
    Thanks for the post Jonathan.
