Preliminary Agenda for Startup Weekend Gurgaon

Here’s an idea of what Startup Weekend Gurgaon is going to look like from 11th November 2011 to 13th November at Airtel’s office in Udyog Vihar. Timings may move slightly but not by much. All attendees will have a chance to pitch at least one idea. If time permits, everyone will get a chance to pitch more than one idea.

Please make your arrangements to be at the venue late into the night on Friday and Saturday. If you have to, get a cab in advance or car pool with other attendees. If you need a couch to crash on, start talking to other participants when you get to the venue or start tweeting about it using the hashtag #swggn.

We will provide dinner on Friday evening, Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast/Lunch/Snacks on Sunday.
