I will be attending the open coffee club (OCC) meetup on August 3rd. 08. Details of the event are here.
OCC bangalore is an open forum for Entrepreneurs, VC’s and budding Entrepreneurs to come together and connect with each other at the grass root level. The group holds its meetings every alternate Sunday in Bangalore.
The Open coffee club was an international initiative to enable entrepreneurs to connect with each other and started off in London in 2007.
The meeting this Sunday, Aug 3rd is very interesting where we will be meeting Mr. Rajeev K Purnaiya, a serial entrepreneur who recently launched hooeey – a tool which enables users to manage their online productivity.
Before this, Rajeev founded CyberBazaar, India’s first and largest conferencing company which was eventually acquired by WebEx.
This is going to be one great meet with many other interesting people like Vijay Anand of Proto.in, Sameer Gulgani of Morpheus Venture Partners, Anjana Vivek of VentureBean, Anjana Kaul of Footprint ventures and Ganesh Rengaswamy (Ex-Greylock) expected to be there.

I was at the Bangalore startup lunch last Saturday at the NSCREL, IIM Bangalore. It was a good event overall, with participation from about 8 startups. The agenda of startup lunch was to provide a platform for Startups and Job seekers, so that they can get know startups better, their work culture and the works. Went to the event with no specific goal as a job seeker, but ended up having interesting conversations with many founders. The organizing team has a nice scoop of the event here.
Kudos to the organizing team for putting up a great show!Great job guys – Sridhar, Ashish and Pradeep !
If you are interested in working for a startup – here’s a list of startups in Bangalore along with positions that they are looking for.
If you were at the event, these are pics from Pradeep.
