What to expect


For all of you coming to Startup Weekend Delhi Governance edition, here are a few things to get you ready.

  1. Practice your 60 second idea pitches before you come. You will have 60 seconds to pitch an idea. If time permits, we will allow people to pitch additional ideas.
  2. Bring the confirmation of your ticket along with an id.
  3. Bring your laptops, pen, paper, any cables necessary to connect your laptop to a projector, etc. so that you can work!
  4. Hashtag for the weekend is #swdel. Tweet about what you’re upto. Tell people what your upto at the event.
  5. Feel free to bring cameras and video cameras to capture the incredible energy you are going to be a part of.

  10. Please clean up after yourself and don’t leave garbage laying around.
