The usual startup events in Pakistan are designed around talks, lectures and, panel discussions, making it difficult for participants to foster meaningful relationships with leaders and mentors. Here, TechJuice Circle is changing the game by giving an immersive experience to all the participating entrepreneurs.

How will TechJuice gamify the networking experience?
TechJuice Circle 2018 is hosting seasoned professionals and field experts to help entrepreneurs gain learnings to solve diverse challenges. All the mentors will act as listeners, helpers, and connectors for these startups.
To make sure, every participant gets time to interact with the maximum number of mentors and fellow founders, TechJuice is taking the approach of gamification. In a 40-minutes-cycle, mentors will be assigned a group of four to six startups with two founders each.
During this cycle, startup founders will do a round of introductions and share the challenges they are focusing to solve. The mentors will listen and advise the founders to set the right direction or help them access relevant professionals.
According to the color code given to the startups, the founders will move to different tables at every 40-minutes cycle. Through this rotation program, we ensure the participants meet with at least 50 percent of other event participants and mentors.
