The summit will be held on September 15th in Gurgaon. The government had earlier planned to launch the policy in 2015, and then later in 2016. But on both occasions, it suffered unprecedented delays.

Entrepreneurs also want Haryana to move processes online and make regulatory framework like company registration, taxation — online. Start-ups easier .
"Start-ups in Gurgaon have the advantage of targeting the city's millennial crowd and experiment with new ideas. However, they look for the government's backing, such as like cheap/free office spaces, as real estate is quite expensive, as also with policy support for exemption from state tax rules, capital pool, networking opportunities and support for other towns," said Uday Lakkar, founder, CoHo, a Gurgaon start-up offering co-living and student accommodation.
 
Haryana's start-up environment is largely restricted to Gurgaon. While many entrepreneurs want state government to start pushing Gurgaon as a start-up hub, there are also suggestions to push entrepreneurship in other cities.(Source Times of India)
