Megabucks : Day 1 in a Nutshell

Reached IIT Kanpur at around 1:00 in the afternoon on 6th April.The lunch at IITK was excellent and guess what happened after the lunch question I slept from 3:00 to 9:30(due to the excess heat in Kanpur and also due to the tiredness of the journey from Delhi to Kanpur).

Spoke to some of the organizers here in Kanpur regarding the session on Blogging.There is a change in the plan and we(myself and Ashwin) have planned to have the session,the Unconference way.Yup,we would have an open session which would focus on the topics discussed in my previous post.

The reason for this change was that many IITK guys(with whom we interacted) did not know about unconferences and hence we decided a change in the plan wink The session is slated at 7:00 in the evening.The other sessions would start at 8:00 in the morning and we hope to go there on time.

We also received the Startups.in T-Shirts and it felt very nice to wear the T Shirt.For the other startup-ers who have missed this event,below is a small glimpse of the Front and Back side of the T Shirt lol


So,what's happening for the next two days?
There are business competitions and interesting sessions on Entrepreneurship(check the image for the details) and not to forget our unconference session at 7:00 PM(on 07/04/2007).

1. The list of startups. Got to know a few more.

2. Tekriti's presence motivated me. I'm somehow influenced by those three guys behind. They seem to follow what they write in blogs.

3. I shall be back to India this june, will definitely get in touch. Am sure there's something I too can help with.

Btw I remember your faces from BCB2 but then we never interacted. Too busy to see the show :).

Hey PG,
Definitely,we can help each other to build a better ecosystem.Oh that's nice you remember my face since I was there in BCB2 and now I am an ardent follower of Unconferences.

Dont worry,even if you miss the show,I would always try to blog the event live ;-)
