I'm Hosting the #2 India Steemit Accelerator in Bangalore on 30th July! This is What You Can Expect!

in #steemit4 years ago (edited)

It's time to kick things up a notch! Steemians from Bangalore, India get ready for an interactive session on Steemit. Last month, I held the #1 India Steemit Accelerator in Mangalore city. Overall the response was great! We had a good number of participants at the mini-conference and the event received an excellent press coverage as well!

L-R: @firepower, @andreanoronha, @rjsudeep, @srinidhi, @speedracer, Neilnoronha and @sanjayjkamath

Check out these two posts on the last event:

  1. Successful #1 India Steemit Accelerator and Steem Cryptocurrency Meetup 2017!

  2. Press Coverage of #1 India Steemit Accelerator in Top Indian News Publications!

Today as a follow up to the #1 event I organized a small meetup of local Steemit users at a local cafe. It was a casual gathering where a few friends discussed our individual Steemit journeys over a nice meal. I'll write about that in another post. But first...

Bangalore, 30th July 2017!

The first event received a fantastic response and there was a great demand to hold another such event in the IT hub of India! This event is on the 30th July 2017 (Sunday) morning 10AM - 2PM. The conference location and seating capacity is being finalized but the time slot and date is final!

The seating will be limited to around 30 people or so. +/- 10. If you can make it to the event, kindly reply in the comments below so I can get a headcount for the same and ensure there is ample seating available to accommodate everyone.

As you might know, I'm funding this myself so I welcome your support and encouragement. Hopefully I can finalize location that is reasonably priced and one that offers ample seating capacity.

The most important thing to remember is this: If you have a talented friend or family member whom you know can benefit by signing up and using Steemit, then please get them to the event!

What Can I Expect At The India Steemit Accelerator?

  1. Complete basics of Steemit from account creation to using the markets.
  2. Networking with other users from the country.
  3. Experience sharing with key members of the platform from India.
  4. Interactive session with ample opportunity and time for QnA.
  5. Mentoring on how to make the most of your time spent on Steemit!
  6. Meetup with other like minded Steemit users.

I'll be posting the final details within a week but please keep your schedule free. If you live in Bangalore, then I hope to see you there. Based on the success of this event, I hope to evolve and take this format further up North and East of India as the user base from India continues to grow and as long as I find it feasible.

If you are from Bangalore or nearby cities and want to stay updated at a faster pace then you can catch me at #India on Steemit.Chat!

This is a free-to-participate event!

If you like my work kindly resteem it to your friends. You may also continue reading my recent posts which might interest you:

Let's do one in Pune as well @firepower 😊
Many of my friends are interested after I told them how I won 75k steem power in a contest 😁
I know a lot of talented musicians and bloggers who can benefit from the Steemit platform.
Yesterday I met up with a few musician & designer friends and explained them all the basics of Steemit and they created accounts.
But I am still new to the platform, so someone like you who has a success story to tell can help so much and will be effective.
Let me know if you are up for it and how do we go about it.

Yes he should do one in pune..I would love to attend and will also bring few of my friends!!

Are you from Pune @bhightech?


Great! I am sure there are more. We can all get together sometime.

Absolutely! :)

Am dentist by proffession and am from jammu and kashmir india. I am a minnow i joined steemit last month and in beggining i dont know how to use steemit but now am acquantised to it and am doing well but not great. So in order to have a good growth and a great identity in the community i need to attend such events. Plz rply back if there is any way out ..
Thank you have a nice day @naseerbhat

Hi @naseerbhat,

Do join Steemit.chat and #India Channel for more details and regular updates! :)

You can ping me on chat for more details.

That is so exciting!!! I would love to get it together enough to organise something similar in Cape Town, South Africa. I think it would be amazing!!! I hope yours is a raging success 😍👍😎

It sure is! You should really host one!: )

@firepower Hope you conduct an event like this at Kolkata. Better still, why don't you have a video recording of this event, if possible. That'll be the quickest and most effective way to reach out to newbies like me, and guide them on what goes on inside the Steemit family.

Sure. Will keep you posted! :)

There's a lot of talent waiting to be discovered in Bangalore.
This would be a great opportunity for the people of the IT hub to learn about Steemit and start using their talent to get some bad-ass quality content from India on Steemit!
All the best for the event bro! Cheers! :)

Absolutely! This will be great fun to execute for sure! Im looking forward to it! :) Thanks for the support dude!

Great work! I hope you have some good response and participation.

Thank you Tom for the encouragement! :)

What a fantastic effort, @firepower. I would love to attend an event like this in my area. I think it is fantastic that your are not only spreading the word, but you are also helping new users navigate the system. Great job. Resteeming to spread the word of your good work and upcoming event.

Thank you so much! It's great to see you stop by my blogs often! :)

That is what following is about. :-)

great job buddy. This community needs people like you. i'm also thinking of running a project here in Pakistan to promote steemit and let people now how it works and how they can reach the height of success here.

Thank you so much! :) Please check #Pakistan on Steemit chat and maybe you can turn that link spam channel around into something constructive. Id be happy to assist if needed!

sure!! thanks for your support.

How i wish I was in India right now and bring my participation @firepower ! Wish you lots of success in everything you undertake!
Cheers from Mauritius

Thank you! Maybe one of these months I can visit your country and we can do this there! :)

Oh really @firepower? This can be a very great event indeed and I will be the first to assist in making it happen! Mauritians are still not used to Steemit, and this is what is needed to make them adopt it!
I just wish you really mean it and it do happen!

And of top of that you can also enjoy this amazing country too!
Just let me know, always available for you!

Well I love travelling and it's a place I've never been to before. So if I were to come there then for sure i'd love to meet people from the area and we could do something like this there! :)

@firepower any plans to come to pune or mumbai!!

Yeah! I will keep you posted! :)

That's a great initiative @firepower . I really wanted to attend this meetup but I'll most probably on a business tour next week. But having read that you're financing this meet up on your own, I really appreciate your efforts. you're doing very hard for this community. A big thumbs up for you brother.

Ah that's too bad! Well if your plans change you know where to come! :)

For sure brother. I know very well and I know who I have to contact :)

Your just fired my thoughts up for what I can do for my people.... Thank you for this welcome challenge.

Go for it dude! all the best!

Love to see what you're doing @firepower ! Happy to have people here that invest time and effort into the platform :)

Hope I can get to do the same once I get some better foothold in the community, a STEEM StartUp Weekend would be amazing!

Thank you so much @fredrikaa

@firepower you are doing a very good job and earned 100% upvote from me including a good place in my steem voters,
I like the way you add value to steemit and wish you more success. Feel free to see my latest post on why people should stop whining and buy steem. Thanks a lot and keep steeming.

thanks! I hope to do more as I go!

welcome and more success. M

Great job. You are really promoting the Steemit community. We applaud your efforts. Good post.

I wish you best success with projects like these ! You're really helping steemit grow much more :)

Thank you so much! @trendo

Awesome good luck! Gave my upvote though it's not even worth a cookie at the party :-)

My vote was a cookie crumb for about a year so don't worry! Just keep Steeming! :)

Hello. I'm from Bangalore and I'd love to get some advice on how to go about things here. I'm kinda new to the platform so I'm not sure if I'll fit in with the bigger steemians there. But yeah, sure, would like to come for the meet up.

Superb! Sounds good! I'll be sure to reserve you a seat for the event! :)

Thank you so much! @appledeguzman

You should someday! :)

its awesome and great for we indians thanks

Hi @Firepower, I was just going through your profile. Looks great. You guys are doing an awesome job. Would you allow me to post an off topic question here that is about steemit chat? Actually, I could never login there despite several attempts. It always gives wrong password/ user id error whereas I login from the same login details that I use to login everyday.

Is it a common error or just happening to me?

I would appreciate if you could help me on it.

Followed and upvoted!

Good luck with your event!

Hi @ugetfunded Just to quickly outline the steps for Steemit.Chat a/c creation and use.

You need to use a separate account on chat. Use the same username as on Steemit.com but you have to create a new account there as Steemit.com and Steemit.Chat are not the same site.

If you already have a Chat account, create another using a fresh email and DM me once you get in and I'll get your original account up and running.

I hope this helps.

Hi @Firepower, I am from Mumbai. Would like to connect with you to know more about this. Please suggest what is the best medium to connect...emails, whatsapp or steem chats... If it is chat, I probably have to learn how to do that :-)

Hi @rajavelthiruvu, join steemit.chat and #India channel. You can connect with me and other fellow Indians.


I love seeing stuff like this.

Hey man, I continue to be impressed by your work!
