When – 17th May 2008

Where -


" Pingala - Aryabhata ", 12A/12, off Karve Road,

Erandwane, Pune 411004.


Map for the venue


Venue - Persistent

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. As per the BarCamp rule, there are no spectators, only participants. We only need 3 things – a place to hang out, ideas and food.


About IdeaCampPune


This is a self-organized gathering to share ideas and see them shape by applying divergent thinking. The objective of the camp is to get people from different roles like designers, entrepreneurs, financers, creative minds, technology evangelists, product managers and marketers together to bandy ideas from everyone’s viewpoint. Ideally by end of the gathering we should have ‘proof of potential’ for our ideas.








We are happy to announce that Persistent Systems Limited have been wonderful to us. They have provided space and are also sponsoring food.


We are also thankful to ITVidya.com for promoting us in a big way!

Potential Ideas


There is no restriction to what ideas you come up with except that it should make business sense and is useful to at least a group of people. You can share with the community how your idea solves an identified problem or serve any observed need.

You can queue the ideas continually on this page and in case we get more ideas flooding, then the participants will decide which ones to discuss.


Topics I would like to hear about



  • Mobile applications
  • Internet TV
  • Community websites
  • Smart appliances
  • Social needs
  • Education
  • Reality shows
  • Gaming
  • Products for the masses
  • Radio
  • eGovernance
  • Eco-friendly products
  • Web 2.0
  • Experimental film-making





Often our ideas remain ideas and we are not sure whom to discuss them with. You may have a great idea, but the real challenge lays in finding its appropriate application. Cohesive and divergent thinking is what is required to build ideas from scratch to working prototypes. In the process we need to discuss with people from different walks of life to identify how our ideas can make a difference in their lives. Can our ideas make money for anyone?
