Construkt Fest – Convergence of the Creators!

In Mar 2013, I was excited to be at the Startup Festival, celebrating the rise of Bangalore as the startup capital of India. The insights I gained and the fun I had, made me wait eagerly for the 2014 edition. It did come, however with more creative stuffs and re-branded as the Construkt Festival, to celebrate the convergence of Creators: Artists, Activists, Change Makers, Designers, Entrepreneurs, Engineers, Social Innovators, Restaurateurs, Chefs, Brewmasters, Hackers, Makers and Muscians. 
 
Spread over 4 days, the first 2 days were the Crawls, where we get to visit various startups in tech, social, design and culinary, listening to the founders, seeing their offices, studios, restaurants and brewery and taking insights from their journey as a creator/entrepreneur. The last 2 days marked the actual festival, held at Jayamahal Palace, Bangalore. With multiple stages, studios, flee market, eateries, and a lots of fun, I got to gain a lots of wisdom, meet various creators and make a few friends. In toto, its was an Awesome four days of Crawl! Learning! Creativity! Networking & Great Fun! Pictures would convey the message better.
