TechStock@TheAugustFest – Raise seed-fund, find mentors and get wide visibility for your early-stage startup ON THE SPOT.

One the the prime objectives of the 10,000 Start-ups program is to provide opportunities for early stage startups who are looking for little bit of help to take a full fledged startup leap. With that in mind we have organized about 4 on-the-spot funding events since our launch in April’13 where more than twelve startups got on-the-spot funding offers from angel investors. These events were organized in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad.

We are now putting up another on-the-spot funding edition – Techstock at the biggest ever confluence of startup and creative communities at Hyderabad – TheAugustFest, 30th & 31st August! The August Fest is a 2 day Art and Entrepreneurship Festival bringing together Entrepreneurs, Aspiring Entrepreneurs, Film Makers, Musicians, Fashion Designers, Photographers and other creative pros. onto one platform and allows them to showcase what they’ve got to the world.
