The Details of the events are as
SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP: SOCIAL IMPACT, INNOVATION, SELF-SUFFICIENCY
What do we owe to our future generations? With a not-for-profit mindset and an aptitude for welfare, social entrepreneurship has many takers. The need of the hour is to tap these potential social entrepreneurs to make an impactful contribution to self-sufficiency and sustainability. But don’t be fooled into considering social entrepreneurship as run-of-the-mill, it’s an uphill task of combining innovation with genuine concern for the society and interestingly, people are up for it!
- YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS: HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR 20’S
Twenty is the new Forty! Defying age norms and establishing new rules, the youth brigade promises to take the world of startups and businesses by storm. Emerging as the new leaders on the block, this panel discussion will provide these budding entrepreneurs useful insights towards developing their startup and be successful!
- A GOLDEN AGE FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS
Challenging social obligations and emerging out of their shells, these superwomen are extraordinary in every aspect. As the current times are witnessing a huge jump in the number of women entrepreneurs, this discussion promises to expand you horizon and deepen your understanding on startups by women and their emergence into the sector.
- IS THE STARTUP BUBBLE BURSTING
Hundreds of layoffs at several Indian Startups have sparked fears that this immensely hyped ‘Startup Bubble’ is soon going to burst. The launch of the government campaign ‘Startup India, Standup India‘ by the Prime Minister was supposed to refuel this sector. But recent events of disgruntled staff losing their jobs and delayed payment present a different story altogether. So are our fears justified or are we simply overreacting?
Even after 10 year Start-ups are relatively new to India. The ‘West’, however has been the home for young entrepreneurs since the times of Steve Job, and Gates. Global Mélange will bring many successful entrepreneurs from around the world to talk about their experiences, and to celebrate the spirit that exists beyond all boundaries.
ART OF VALUING A START-UP
What is the value of a company that was started just months ago? This is the first question that all investors will ask? Valuation matters to entrepreneurs because it determines the share of their company they have to give away to an investor in exchange for the funds. Most start-ups do not generate revenue; it becomes difficult to estimate its value. However, several methods have come up to accomplish this challenging task. In ‘Art of Valuing of a Start-Up’ we bring to you easy ways to do your work.
THE BIG PICTURE: FUNDING, POLICIES AND CUSTOMERS
How to raise capital for your start-up, and develop strategies to attract funds from VCs? What are the government policies that will support your company like income tax exemption to start-ups? Who is the target audience for your product, what all problems will come on entering the market? Many such questions will be addressed in our discussion “THE BIG PICTURE: FUNDING, POLICIES AND CUSTOMERS”.
