Join the Walk

February 14-15, 2019

Startup Walk Chennai

Startup Walk Chennai is a city-wide open house for technology companies and Innovation Driven Enterprises.
Check out the spaces, meet the founders and get a behind-the-scenes look
at the most innovative companies in Chennai and the research entities that are driving them.

Ecosystems are not curated like gardens. They grow like Forests. Let's take a walk!

Join us on 14th & 15th of February 2019 (Thursday/Friday) to meet the founders, companies and
new technology that is shaping India’s future.

Note : You can choose to participate on either of the days or on both days

Registrations are now OPEN


Meet a diverse range of the ecosystem - be it early stage startups, fast growing companies, incubators, accelerators, R&D Institutes and coworking spaces.

Talks by Startup Founders

Hear inspiring stories and talks by Startup Founders on what makes them and their startup tick, how they got started, and what keeps them going.

Guided and Curated Tour

Don't worry about logistics or where to get started. We have buses arranged to take you around to each of these offices and spaces, and bring you right back.


Participation is open to all, with a "commitment" fee, just so that we know you are really coming!

Note : For Group Passes (10 and above participants) write us an email at
