Book your place for In50hrs


In50hrs, is a idea to prototype event conducted by The Startup Centre, which curates and pushes your startup idea to accelerate. If you want to be a technology entrepreneur, this is a perfect event to start working with your idea.

This event happens for three days where you will receive guidance from the mentors which helps you to bring your product live at the end of the event. You can either be a idea man(has an idea, but doesn’t code) or a hacker(who can code, but doesn’t have any idea). If you have both the qualities, then rock the show.

"In50hrs is The Idea-To-Prototype Event. Entrepreneurs (or Idea Smiths), Developers, and Product Designers come together to work on audacious ideas and build working prototypes (MVP) over a Weekend." – In50hrs

The event will start with an introduction from all participants and mentors. Participants will have to tell the crowd what their idea is to others, so that it will be much helpful for others to team up with them. For example, some people in this event come with ideas but doesn’t know to code, while some come here with coding skills but don’t have any startup idea. One can convince other to join as a team where they can build a product for the next two days.

You need to verify some checklist, before attending the event. Here is what they say.
