Pune may not be the hotspot for entrepreneurship but definitely becoming one of them. Keerthi Kadam, the founder of 100rupis.com organized a “Pune Innovators’ Meetup” at International Institute of Information Technology (I2IT). In his Previous initiative,e quite a few people showed up but now almost 21 people attended the meetup. We always admire him for his efforts and Pune needs such entrepreneurs. Keerthi has send us some details and photos of the event, let’s take a look at inside story.
(And Thank You Keerthi for sending this in)
According to Keerthi –
It was a meetup to discuss innovations happening at Startups and several ideas were shared. IT Professionals, Startups and students attended the meetup.
Topics Discussed –
Is failure, a good thing to happen to a Startup, do we learn a lot from our own mistakes or should we learn from others’ mistakes alone. Should we be doing need mistakes?
Is sharing you idea with people — who are already ahead of you in terms of knowledge and resources — a good idea?
How do you filter from hundreds of ideas and say, “this is the one that I am going to work on and will make it big”?
How to find guides, mentors and incubators/ accelerators for our ideas?
Does having one business co-founder and one tech co-founder make a big difference to the Startup?
Overall, it was a great meetup, lots of great discussions and some good collaborations.
