Preliminary Agenda for Startup Weekend Delhi Mobile September 2012


Here’s an idea of what Startup Weekend Delhi Mobile is going to look like from 21st September to 23rd September 2012 at the American Center on KG Marg, near Connaught Place. Timings may move slightly but not by much. All attendees will have a chance to pitch at least one idea in 60 seconds. 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 via Twitter (hashtag #swdel) or in the Facebook group or ask other participants when you get to the venue.

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