The idea behind Startup Open House is, as hinted by the name, to open up the vibrant start-up community for everyone to discover. Entrepreneurs show the rest of the community a prototype of the product they've been working on or a new feature. This is a great opportunity to get to understand what the Bengaluru startups are up to, give feedback, advice and learn a few mistakes to avoid.
The demos will be followed by '5-minute favors'. The idea is simple - everybody present, exchange simple 5-minute favors. In 5 minutes a person can - Comment on the website UI; Introduce two people with a well-written email; Share or retweet something on Facebook or Twitter; and so on.
