When abundant ideas meet at one single place- what do you get? the manifestation of your startup in head!
The evening of 20th January has set the ball rolling for a few,or maybe more, extraordinarily implemented brainwaves.
I had the privilege to witness the gathering of people belonging to a wide spectrum of talent pitching their ideas to get started to satisfy their creative and professional needs.
So,we started off with keynote speeches from two eminent entrepreneurs and corporate leaders in their own rights- Vij Rajarajan from Microsoft and Sanjay Swamy,co-founder of Angel Prime investors and founder of mChek.
Vij spoke about his experience in Microsoft and their targets for the next few years,some of the strategies of Microsoft etc.
I particularly enjoyed Sanjay Swamy’s keynote: The takeaways from his keynote
1.) When starting up,collaborate with people have a common vision but complimentary skills
2.) Always,always validate your ideas before implementing and never underestimate women’s perspectives (but never partner with your wife! what can i say?The guy’s a pro! :D)
3.)Don’t hang around for too long. Just Do It.
The keynotes were followed by two rounds of Pitching sessions where the attendees threw their ideas into the air to lure the like-minded people.The ideas ranged from Online trial room to simplify shopping to Reverse marketing to delivering designer lunchdabbas to starting an online social university.And these are only a few that i’ve mentioned here.
The ideas that particularly struck me in the 2nd round of pitches were RemoteDesk -to provide all the online tools to companies to brainstorm and ideate online, Where’s my Child? (to provide help find missing children and women due to abduction using database creation and management) and Give Me Blood .
