In the last 3 years, the community’s hosted more than 300 meetups around the world and the last event in Chennai happened a couple of years ago.
On 29th July, much to the fanfare of a comeback event after 2 years, Product Hunt Chennai meetup happened at Freshworks office, SP Infocity Chennai. The event witnessed over 300 registrants interested in the event, that eventually turned out to be a full house on the event day.

The event which began at 6 pm on a Saturday evening, saw a cohort of 5 curated startups/products who are in the very early stages of launch or yet to launch.
