STARTUP JOURNEY SESSION DETAILS:
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step” – Lao Tzu

Similarly, in a startup journey, no one can take the second step without taking the first step. The key things with regards to taking the first step are:

· Do we know in which direction it will lead us?

· With whom will we be taking that first step?

· Along the way, can I/we as founders take care of all the responsibility?

· If we are lost and gone off track, how much time and resources can we spend to come back on track?

· If we hit a dead end, can we start all over again?

· Most importantly, do we have alternate routes like plan-B or plan-C for our journey, and perhaps an exit strategy?

The speaker for this session Chinmay Ananda will be sharing his experience from 2008 onwards about his six failed startup ventures, and things he learned along the way that are usually not taught in any business school.

Today, he had multiple businesses, guest lectures in business schools, and is an investor where he sees the common mistakes most startup founders are still doing. He will be sharing them during this interactive session. So, have your questions ready!
