About The Event

A bunch of young chaps didn't have money to pay their rent. But, they had ideas to disrupt the real estate market. In a few years time, they did something that no one ever imagined - they disrupted the real estate rental market through the use of smart technologies that revolves around the concept of shared economy. There are similar stories of other successful startups that are disrupting industries & changing our lives for the better.

The journey from an idea or concept in mind to a real startup doesn't happen overnight & doesn't happen without pre-planning. If it happens overnight without pre-planning, then the startup will most likely fail. In fact the success rate of startups is less than 1% which means that more than 99% of startups fail within a year of founding the startups.

Entrepreneurs & Founders cannot control everything that happens to their startup. But, they can definitely ensure that the probability of failure is reduced. The first step towards that goal is to plan a good business model. They sit together & jot down their idea on paper & plan their business model. Business model will chart the future direction of a startup.
