What: 4-hour hands-on workshop on developing your startup idea
When: Sunday March 29, 9:30am – 1:30pm
Where: Seed Infotech, Nalanda building, Opposite Gandhi Lawns, Erandwane
Registration and Fees: This is a free workshop, but open only to the first twenty teams that register. (Hurry, offer open until stocks last. Only 7 slots left!)
This is a 4 hr workshop for people interested in starting their own technology business. This workshop is for small teams of 2 or 3 people who have a clear idea of an idea they would like to work on. Participants will spend 90% of their time developing this idea.
This is not a lecture, people without their own business idea will be bored.
The workshop will have several segments of 20 – 40 minutes each. I will introduce each segment in about 5 minutes. During the remaining time people will work on that particular aspect of their own idea. Each team will setup a private wiki which they will develop during the workshop.
Segments may include:
- personal biographies of the founders
- over view of the space
- overview of the idea
- what are the high level technical requirements for products
- what is the proposed technology stack for doing something
- simple architecture diagram
- budget, financial requirements
- cash flow projection, when where to get money
- what are the important websites
- who are the major competitors
- who are the luminaries
- who are the customers
- who are potential advisors
- who are potential partners
