The Entrip team was there in Bangalore from 8th Jan to 11th Jan to
pitch in HeadStart.in.

While Nick was in U.K.. Anthony, Me, Shardul and Akshay went to talk
about our product. It was a learning experience for all of us to talk about
what we have been developing for last couple of months in front of a
larger and smarter crowd.

In our Trip we also visited the ThoughtWorks, Bangalore office and
had an exercise there to understand their agile way of working. Sidu
with whom we mostly spent our time was quite an impressive guy – can
say a Rails guru who was cool enough to tell us about every bits and
pieces that we have asked for.

Finally, after coming back we thought we would use our product to
capture our experiences!

They are in India for last six months. And have experienced so many things
starting from spicy Indian foods, to Hindi songs, traveling in auto rickshaw
where they are being charged more than the normal price, and have also
experienced shooting for a Bollywood movie “Delhi-6”. In short they have
faced so many things in their travel – which justified them being the co-
founder of Entrip.

I have been introduced to them by Maku after our LCG meeting. And liked their
idea of designing a single portal where you can plan your trip, share your trip
experience with your family and friends and collect them together for memory!
The cool thing about Entrip is that it’s already being integrated with facebook
and flicker.

Once, while having dinner with those guys I asked Nick and Anthony, what’s the
most funny experience of you guys while being in India. Anthony answered me
opening beer bottles. They don’t have an opener to open the crown of the beer
bottles …. so they use anything which they get in hand to open the bottle. And
here is the video about the same. It’s interesting …. it’s funny and in short it
tells what Entrip is all about.
