Komli Mixer roundup

The Komli Pune Mixer event was attended by close to 50 people from various startup companies in Pune. It was a get together where folks from the founder and CEO/CTO community met engineers and hackers from a number of startups. Check out the attendance demographics.

We had people coming from very different technology and business areas – from Avaya to Zmanda. We had participation from 42 companies in Pune. Some of the notable company representations were from BookEazy.com, EverGrid, MeraTrip.com, Officewalla.com, PANTA Systems, Persistent Systems, Sakaal Papers, SunGard, Symantec, Symphony Services, Xite etc.

Some people are doing really interesting stuff. Like Xite etc who are developing some very cool technology for video restoration, and think that their technology can reduce the costs of video-restoration by up to 90%. MeraTrip.com, that does trip-plan aggregation. Officewalla.com that makes CRM software. Etc.

This is probably for the first time that we had such a get together in Pune, where we had people from Pune startup community meet; I feel we had a very unique combination of CEOs, founders and engineers in this event. See chart to see the attendance demographics.


Most people that I met were young, energetic, “entrepreneur type” people, it was very cool to meet such people. We had good beer and tikka served from Sarjaa. A good number of people that I met thought that this was a very useful event, and we should organize more such events.

Hi Mukul,

The event was a real 'mixer' and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Rarely do you get an opportunity to meet and interact so informally with such a diverse group (in terms of age/experience, technology area, companies etc.)
And as you rightly mentioned the environment where there are so many highly motivated individuals is in itself quite inspiring..

So, here's to many more such events!

Cheers!

Hi Mukul,

It was a great idea and nicely arranged party or I should call it a "mixer event". Gathering so many different people must have been a tough task. Keep doing this more ... ;)

Thanks,
Siddharth
