Startup Walk Chennai is a city-wide open house for technology companies.
Check out the spaces, meet the founders and get a behind-the-scenes look
at the most innovative companies in Chennai.
Ecosystems are not curated like gardens. They grow like Forests. Let's take a walk!
Join us on Thursday, July 21st to meet the founders, companies and
new technology that is shaping India’s future.
Meet a diverse range of the ecosystem - be it early stage startups, fast growing companies, incubators, accelerators and coworking spaces.
Hear inspiring stories and talks by Startup Founders on what makes them and their startup tick, how they got started, and what keeps them going.
Don't worry about logistics or where to get started. We have buses arranged to take you around to each of these offices and spaces, and bring you right back.
We've planned a whole day for you - 3 routes, 5-6 startups in each and one networking dinner.
The day begins at 9:00am at the starting point. We get introduced and hop onto a route of our choice and get started. Over the course of the day you will visit 5-6 startup offices, coworking spaces and technology companies - some small, some large, some overflowing. You will get to spend anywhere between 30 - 45 mins in each org. Post which you'd hop back on the bus and continue the journey. We all come together - along with the founders and key members of each of these orgs in the evening for dinner to wrap up the day.
Please join us for the Post-Event Dinner, where all the participants and the founders of participating startups, companies and spaces will be present. Mingle, continue the conversation over food!
We all form an ensemble at the starting point by 9:00am
After introductions, we split into our respective route buses and get going by 9:30am. Don't be late!

Participation is open to all, with a small "commitment" fee, just so that we know you are really coming!
It's a fabulous way to build a community, something that many cities and disciplines have been doing for a while now. It allows people to emerge from places you never expected and grow the community in a fun way.

Startup walk feels like a refreshing change from the mundane community events. It makes an intimate connect between hardcore geeks, kick-ass designers and the awesome startups in Chennai. My hand went up in support for this event without a blink!

StartupWalk seems like a brilliant way to give people a peek into what the Indian startup culture really is. You don’t know what it’s like until you're actually a part of it. I definitely think telling people the Freshdesk story - how we've built a passionate team to work on world class products from Chennai - by letting them see it for themselves is a phenomenal way to make an impact on the minds of young aspiring entrepreneurs. After all, dreams need to be ignited too!
