An inside scoop on the story of Latlong, a product that was designed exclusively for the likes of the people who prefer simple, colloquial directions over others. How we ""navigated"" ourselves across Bangalore then & how we have managed to cover all the major cities of India with a simple idea of restoring simplicity to the hustling bustling lives of people who struggle to get to places due to lack of clear directional instructions is a story of learning.

    Jaaga's Openhouse:

    Have design or technical skills? Want to do a startup? Need to settle on an idea and find cofounders ?  Participate in the StartupSchool.in CoFounder Dating and Brainstorming workshop at Jaaga Sunday March 10. With group brainstorming and speed dating we prototype founding teams with a plan to get started.



    What is an Openhouse:

    On Sunday, numerous companies, organizations and people will host diverse sessions all over Bangalore. These will be "freestyle" events, meaning they will not be curated by Startup Festival team, volunteers or on-site Startup Festival branding.

    There were so many deserving and eager companies who wanted to host sessions at Startup Festival, but who we couldn't accomodate due to schedule restrictions. Well, Sunday is their day to shine and to inspire a new generation of startups in Bangalore!
