WHO CAN ATTEND
This meetup is for entrepreneurs who
- Have at least 5 years of experiences in Sales (or have a team member or employee with 5+ years of experience)
- Have been working full time on the venture for at least 3 months
- Have registered a private limited company
Our meetups are not for big groups. We expect to interact with 2 startups at most in any meetup. We ensure that we spend quality 1 - 2 hrs with each entrepreneur in a focused session.
Agenda is quite simple:
• We get to know each other first and understand what drives us to do what we are doing. We also set expectations what we can do and what we can't.
• We discuss in details your current status.
• We identify the gaps & next steps. We will work with you to achieve it with clear ownership and timelines.
• We create the plan for next 3 months. Target is to get revenues or customers in this time.
Please spend sometime to figure out what you would like to discuss with us. Its best if you come along with your team and not alone.
We will ask you specific and direct questions and expect you to give some really good answers than avoiding them. That's the only way we can help. You are welcome to ask us questions too.
If you need a non-disclosure agreement or any confidentiality agreement before you discuss anything, this meetup is not the best place. We can have separate meeting with you.
Also please make sure you CALL the organizers well in advance before coming for the event. Otherwise, your RSVP will not be considered!
DURING THE MEETUP
Please remember, this is a short session of 1 hrs. If you have been working on your idea for a few months, its not possible for us to know all about it during this session and then there are other enthusiasts too who want to share about their great work and ideas! And we want to make sure we address at least 2-3 important concerns of each entrepreneur.
So how do we get to know so much about everyone, understand and solve a few problem for all as well as a good brainstorming. Answer is, we can't!
To make best use of session, lets catch-up over call before the session if you feel like. However, during the session, we should have a focused discussion where others can also participate. Try to be objective and look at your venture dispassionately. Don't worry, we will give you cues if you are getting carried away.
And not the least, there is a lot of ground work we will be doing with you before and after the meetup too so don't worry if we didn't get your full story. We will make sure we get to root of it! :)
You need to think over the plan, inputs shared during the session. If it makes sense and helps you, please do work on it. We will be waiting to hear from you and will be doing our part too as we make progress.
We will also be constantly reaching out to you, quite shamelessly. We will email you, text you, whatsapp you and ask you "what the hell are you doing about...?" and sometimes "what the hell have you been thinking about...". And we don't mind expecting the same in return.
If our inputs don't work for you or don't make sense, do let us know! We will figure out whats not right.
WHATS IN IT FOR THE ORGANIZER?
I have been an entrepreneur myself and know the pain each of us takes when running a business. If I can help someone avoid those pitfalls, I know I would have done something worthwhile. And I get to connect with purposeful individuals and add value to their idea. Nothing beats that networking.
Secondly, if things click - we might have some transactions between us towards a long term business association. We are looking for serious ideas or rock solid entrepreneurs.
