In50hrs_idea_to_prototype

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.

What is mooremarket?

Well, mooremarket was a commercial building to buy products like antiques, books, art products and pets from hawkers. Due to an unfortunate fire accident in that building in 1985, that building was demolished. Now the hawkers moved to ‘Lily Pond Complex’ which was built near the mooremarket. Even now people go there calling that place as mooremarket, where they can sell their used products to the hawkers or vice-versa. In May 2012, that idea went digital by a facebook group mooremarket, which now has more than 55 hundred members.

Well, now let me brief what can we do in this group,
