Puja Tweetup Kolkata

So Puja is near. That blissful time of the year when there is literally magic in air and people forget everything to get immersed in the spirit of the festival that is Durga Puja.
A time when Kolkata becomes a center of attraction and the city resembles a big mad carnival!

A time, when bongs of the world come back to their land of fore-fathers, and bengalis of the city, remember their old.

So what would be the best time other than this to have a tweetup for all the #twitterbongs & non-bongs alike to gather & share fun and the spirit of Puja in #kolkata & also enjoy in each others company.

So please RSVP for the #pujatweetup here:

Startup Saturday is an initiative by Headstart to provide entrepreneurs in each city with a monthly community driven forum that is structured in agenda but open in discussions. A Startup Saturday provides a forum for entrepreneurs to discuss, present, network and learn from peers, prospective customers, adopters, partners and investors.

The fundamental idea is to have all parts of the innovation ecosystem interact with each other with high frequency and through rich conversation. We strongly believe that this would lead to faster evolution of the entire ecosystem.


Every Second Saturday of every month.
The next is on 12th of September, 2009 at 3:00 PM.
