Geeks On A Plane are landing in Mumbai!
#GOAP is an invite-only tour for startups, investors and executives that travel across continents exploring technology and markets worldwide. The tour is organised by rock star angel investor Dave McClure’s 500 Startups and the members travel by planes, trains, rickshaws and carts (OK, I added the carts), all with a mission to meet other like minded geeks and build a bond through a sharing of cultures and passions. In India, they will be visiting Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Agra.

I will be attending their Startup Tech Conference, on Monday, 25th February, hosted by Pricebaba and Barcamp where the #GOAP team and start-up founders from the city will be meeting to share ideas on technology, entrepreneurship and the threads that bind them together. Was discussing this with Pranay when he suggested why not MumbaiMag curate a list of fun things to do for the #GOAP as they travel the city? Why not, said I, and here we are.

I’m guessing our adventurous visitors will enjoy the unusual spots and things to do that will give them a taste of the city. Google failed me miserably because I was seeking places to see and things to do with a ‘wow factor’. And so I reached out to good old notes I make on my phone as I roam the streets and trusted friends who dig the city. Here is my list of recommendations after sifting through notes and crowd sourcing ideas from the MumbaiMag team. I will be adding to it, and you are welcome to do so too. 

 

Do I hear someone whisper, ‘how long are they in the city for’?
If they try all these, there is a good chance they will be coming back for more . As always, trying to do our bit for entrepreneurs in Mumbai. (You’re welcome.)
This is a live list, so post your recommendations below! And yes, after reading, pray tell me, did I get the coveted ‘wow factor’ incorporated?

And here is a video from #GOAP’s India visit in 2011:
