BootCamp For Start-ups

Hi ambatisreedhar,

Do you know, most often even the most successful entrepreneurs start very small with the means at hand, and move almost directly into action without elaborate planning? Plans are made and unmade and revised and recast through action and interaction with others on a daily basis. If there is no elaborate business plan what keeps the team together? And what determines the direction of growth?

While managers are taught to analyze the market and choose target segments with the highest potential return, cutting edge research by Professor Sarasvathy and her colleagues shows that expert entrepreneurs tend to find ways to reach the market with minimum expenditure of resources such as time, effort and money.

It is time to learn about new paradigm of entrepreneurship, Effectuation. Learn to think like an expert entrepreneur. Learn it from the original source of the research.

If you are thinking about starting your own venture or started, BootCamp For Startups is the right place to address many of your questions, doubts and myths.

It is mandatory for all the participants to fill the following survey.

We request you to fill the survey before the registration.

3. Short- and long-term consequences

4. Waste management

5. Energy and resource management

6. Relationship of technology and innovation to the environment

AN APPEAL: We do not get any grant from any source. All these programs were conducted with the help of voluntary donations from individuals. For a sustained continuation of these programs we need support from all the participants. For conducting one programme with 50 participants we need a minimum of Rs.15,000 per event. Since the future of India depends on the younger generation we intent to include high school and college students – at least 15 in each event. We do not want to burden the students by charging them. We request the other participants to share the expense by contributing a minimum of Rs.250 per head per event at the venue.

This session will cover a small part of JavaScript security, which is of prime importance nowadays. Today, JavaScript is the only language which runs on every machine by default, owing to the fact that it is the scripting language of the browsers. Due to the not so awesome nature of earlier ECMAScript versions and a very quirky implementation of the Document Object Model (DOM) in the browser, dealing with JavaScript code can become very tricky at times.

If you have ever wondered about the security implications which lies beneath these quirky behaviours, this session is totally for you. Talking about client-side browser security for a whole day would be cool, but how about we make it more relevant to our day to day web applications?

The session would concentrate on
Fixing browser based injection attacks like DOM XSS
Sandboxing the DOM properties
Implications of polluting the global namespace
Thought process of bypassing an XSS filters and then fixing them

Since defending requires a very good understanding of what the attack surface is like, we make sure that the attacking part is completely covered as a primer, before defending something. You don’t need to be a Mutation XSS expert to attend this. As long you know what Javascript is and have written basic web applications, you will find this useful and interesting.

Basic knowledge of JavaScript.
Written a few basic web applications

Bachaav Champion | @skeptic_fx | Nafeez Ahamed

Nafeez Ahamed works as a security engineer solving exciting and new problems in the security space. His areas of expertise include client-side security and network security. Most of his time is spent, trying to find new ways to defend things in the browser. He feels that defending anything is much harder than attacking, especially if you know what the sophisticated attackers are up to.

Important information for attendees

Bachaav sessions are free to attend but only with prior invitation. Participants will be selected based on how they fill the registration form. All applications are evaluated by the Bachaav Champion to select those who the Champion thinks will get the most from the session. Only selected applicants will be emailed further details. Even though we would like to get everyone to attend, sometimes the topic at hand requires extensive knowledge of the subject and this means that the Champion may not feel confident to have an applicant in the session.

The Hope Project
The Hope Project is a campaign that aims to inspire urban masses towards empowering rural women entrepreneurs through small contributions. What makes this project special is that the women in this case are ex-Devadasis and the possibility of self-reliance is a ray of fierce hope for them. Within the Devadasi system, young girls are “married” to the temple goddess. This merciless practice, though illegal, still exists in small towns of India.

At Milaap, we’re trying to change their lives in the best and only way we know – empower the people to empower them! The Hope Project seeks to shed some myths about this practice and invites small loans for the micro enterprises of these women. With these small loans, the women can set up small businesses and escape from this cycle of hopelessness.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please feel free to contact Anoop at +91 99000 01655.

Keep blogging!
