Founders Talk - 02 | The Entrepreneurial Journey - A guide to launching your startup

Saturday, July 11, 2020 | 5pm to 6pm IST

Dr. Bharat Damani | Faculty of Entrepreneurship

Many of today's largest businesses were started during a crisis. How did they start? When did they start? What behavior traits and skills did they possess to succeed?
Launching a successful business is a challenging job - starting from coming up with a business idea by understanding one's own strengths, experiences, and expertise around and building a solution that is of value to a group of people or other companies.

Join this webinar with Dr. Bharat Damani who will bring forth examples and frameworks on how one could go about coming up with and evaluating business ideas in today's scenario, and how you can take it forward to launch a startup. Ask your questions during the session and if needed set up a follow-up conversation with Dr. Bharat to deep dive.
