Tweet What You Want To Solve And Win Free Passes To #PiHackathon

We at Pluggd.in are committed to helping build great products out of India. Therefore we decided to launch Hackathon along with our flagship event UnPluggd.

Hackathon is a 2.5 day Hackathon-cum-workshop-cum-get-your-product-started event. We aim to connect you to some hands-on experts in each field of the product development during the 3 days.

Importantly, we do not want some potential hackers to be left out of this event because of the cost of entry. Hence we have a contest for you.

So what do you need to do to win a free entry to Hackathon? Tell us about the pain-point you want to solve.
