Highlights from Startup Walk Chennai

Recently, we participated in an event called Startup Walk Chennai. It is a great initiative, essentially being a city-wide open house for technology companies. It lets tech enthusiasts go behind-the-scenes to meet and interact with the founders and employees of Chennai’s most innovative companies. It was an exhilarating occasion, where about 40-50 people (a mix of job seekers and entrepreneurs) experienced Indix at its heart. As a startup, we love being part of such events which put us in touch with the community and vice versa.

The event was held on August 18, 2015. We were super excited to host these folks and share our space and culture. Here’s how the evening unfolded:

6.00 pm

A couple of us greeted the participants and handed over an envelope with questions about Indix. Our organizing team thought that answering these questions with the help of Indix folks would help them understand us better.

6:05 – 6.20 pm

The participants were given about 15 minutes to interact with folks at the office. Also, this allowed participants to move around the space and get to know things on their own.
