Are you an entrepreneur with a good business idea and looking for an opportunity to meet the right people and do good networking? Then Surge Conference Bengaluru 2016 is one opportunity you should not miss at any cost. Being held on February 23rd – 24th 2016 it is Web Summits first conference in India focused on bringing together startup’s and investors.

How to apply – Our experience

We applied for Surge and get an invitation to join the conference at Bengluru. Right now you have a great opportunity to apply for Surge Conference and get an opportunity to get a discount on the ticket. Open E-School applied for this conference and these are the steps we went through

  1. Applied for the conference
  2. Got an email from one of their startup ambassadors for a call to discuss the product idea
  3. Setup a meeting with them in which the ambassador understood about our product idea first and then explained about the conference and what to expect from it.
  4. At the next step we were told that an internal team will be discussing what was discussed during the call and then if they find our idea worth inviting to the conference they will send us an invite.
  5. We got the invite!

What to expect from Surge

From what we know till now (and it’s exciting to know this) this is what you should expect from the Surge Conference

  2. Two days packed with activities like presenting your product, meeting potential investors, attending round tables, workshops etc
  3. Opportunity to interact with people during the day as well as during evening hours.
