Sabeer's dream city - Nano City

Sabeer Bhatia ( Hotmail fame) dreams big . This time its really big. His next exciting project is to build a Nano city near Gurgaon. In a Q&A with Red Herring he details his plans:

In April, he announced that he will invest time (and possibly money) in a wide-reaching business venture in the state of Haryana, near New Delhi in northern India. Dubbed “Nano City,” the public-private partnership aims to build a Silicon Valley-inspired city where entrepreneurs, technology workers, and venture capitalists co-exist in a bid to spur innovation.The details are still being worked out, but Nano City will neighbor the town of Gurgaon, where more than 20 percent of Fortune 500 companies have already set up shop. Mr. Bhatia will serve as “chief visionary and rainmaker” of the project, helping with everything from conceptualization and city planning to marketing the city to the rest of the world.

Here is the interview in Red Herring.
