Bangalore IT Biz 2012 - Day 3 - The wrap up

As we had expected, the last day of the event had nothing much for everyone. Most of the exhibitors were waiting for the clock to strike 4pm. The most important thing that they were concerned about was, how to reach the airport.

It was the closing time of the event. I could not witness the hub-nub of the last day's morning as I had an important meeting lined up. After the meeting I set out for the exhibition place. The commute was really tiring. I reached the exhibition half an hour before lunch. An hour and a half after lunch, we all wrapped up and rushed to the hotel to pick up our belongings and leave for the airport. Bangalore's traffic is really bad.

I enjoyed my stay at Bangalore. This city has something in its air. I am not sure if it is the spirit of the city or its people, but there is something good! May be an aspiration to be an entrepreneur. Here, the community and the industry support start-up companies. There is encouragement, advice, direction and most of all growth.

It's not about the start-ups who are born to grow or die. It's about the spirit that lies within.
