Mana Network presents B.A.R Episode 2 at UB City, Bangalore ~ Sponsored by ABinBev and Wework

Bars are usually a common place where you get to meet equally like-minded and unique people. Similarly, in this B.A.R also, you get to make strong relationships and build a better rapport. The only difference is here, you walkout with 100+ years of experience worth of knowledge and not a hangover!

B.A.R 2 transcends the benchmark of the entrepreneurial world by bringing to you a unique agenda consisting of emerging business leaders, market leaders, investors and pre-eminent speakers, influencers, designers from diverse sectors to share their personal experiences as well as debating to help budding entrepreneurs develop and shape the path of their entrepreneurial dream!

In addition, B.A.R Episode 2 will have premier workshops, 1 x 1 interaction sessions, group discussions, product exhibitions, and out-of-the-box content creators from diverse industries not only enabling the B.A.R community to garner and cherish the entrepreneurial spirit within each and every one of us but also create a vast number of possibilities  to connect, communicate and collaborate! No matter how resourceful online networking is, offline networking has proven to be effective and we all know the impact a face-to-face interaction leaves you with than a cold call or an Email. Even though Mana Network, the parent company has a very strong online network, B.A.R was born with the intention of getting the whole ecosystem together to build and grow stronger business relationships.

Being one of its kind, B.A.R intends to connect with all the members of the business ecosystem under one roof enabling them to build a strong and efficient rapport. This is one event where members of the business domain share ideas and views on the emerging trends and advancements to achieve the primary goal of B.A.R: To Build, Aspire and Rise.

In addition to the whole business ecosystem, we also have a massive influencer network coming in to network, collaborate and explore opportunities.

To nominate and vote:


Stalls: Food, Beverages stalls and experience zones

B.A.R provides a platform where companies can exhibit and demonstrate their product enabling the attendees to have a realistic experience. B.A.R further allows the setting up of renowned food stalls, making sure the attendees have a wide range of choices to keep them refreshed throughout the event.

Experience zones is one of the most exciting parts of the event. The most awaited experience zones to look forward to is that of WeWork andCred. They intend to help the attendees have a fun and enthusiastic day.

Product Exhibition stalls and Experience zones have a better impact on students as it creates a curiosity for them to know more about the product and further details about the company. This will help students weigh the pros and cons of various products and reach a decision on their own about what suits them best. It is also highly beneficiary for the students as this gives them a chance to ask their queries to experts and get the answers they seek.

B.A.R with an aim to build a bridge of opportunities has come up with the idea of a BARtender. This idea is being implemented as a way to improve and assess the networking abilities of individuals. Anyone can sign in as a BARtender and be a part of the B.A.R family. They get to test their skills and get rewarded for the same.

Bar Pitch:

Bar Pitch is another unique initiative taken by B.A.R to help entrepreneurial minds a step closer to achieving their dreams. It’s a simple task which interested individuals can be a part of to get a chance to pitch their distinctive idea to potential investors.

Most young and aspiring entrepreneurial minds lack the resources to turn their dreams into reality eradicating their passion. B.A.R offers a solution to their dying passion giving it the drive to survive and grab the chance to conquer the business world.
