iWeekend Pune was held earlier this month and is described as:
iWeekend is an intensive and innovative experience that brings together talented entrepreneurs and professionals of different profiles to select 3 ideas and bring these ideas to reality by collaboratively developing a business plan and a prototype, all in one weekend.
iWeekend is targeted towards technologists, designers, marketers, business and finance professionals, lawyers, etc. with a passion for technology and the intention of founding a startup or working in one.
The final output of the event includes a prototype, a basic business plan, a product demo and a possible team.
The event had around 30 participants, and around 10 mentors, all mostly from Pune, and ended up working on 3 different ideas. The event was covered by the “Starting Up” show that airs every week on the ET Now Channel.
