Ideas are commodity. Execution is not!
We all have ideas, Ideas that have the potential to change our lives. But as Michael Dell said successful execution is what transforms an idea into a company. Here’s inviting all the budding entrepreneurs to question those who had taken a step ahead on the roads less travelled and had overcome all the hurdles on this road to success. Get insights on the pitfalls from the investors who can point out the best from the rest.

The conclave would be preceded by the Bzzwings shark tank, one of the few of its kind, if not the only one, where two investors would offer to fund one venture each of their choice based on the pitch that the teams would make at the shark tank

With the global internet population at over 2.7 billion and growing at a rate of 10% YoY, increasing number of customers now make their purchase decisions online. The story is no different in India – with more than 60% of India’s population below the age of 40, we find a lot of them logging into to the internet and social media proactively. With increasing disposable income, this crowd too is sure to make a large portion of their purchases online. Digital Media Marketing is thus a quintessential tool today.

Given the above scenario, it is not surprising that one finds the power and influence of paid media advertising, including print ads, TV commercials, radio, and even online digital campaigns, is waning in favor of unpaid, earned, and owned messaging from your website, social media, key market influencers, and existing customer word-of-mouth. The promise of digital connectivity has also encouraged organizations – political parties, NGOs, large and small corporate to try to engage with them proactively through the digital media.

Find your answers! Participate in NSRCEL’s DigitalMedia for Startups seminar to get inputs on Digital Media Marketing and to generate ideas on how you could leverage this crucial marketing tool to make your business more successful.

As this battle between the MNOs and over the top services develops, operator billing is emerging as the most powerful weapon in the MNO armory.

By leveraging their trusted billing relationship with smartphone users, and offering a frictionless one-click payment experience, MNOs extending the use of operator billing are not just connecting to a world of commercial opportunity, they’re enhancing the user experience, driving up conversion rates and providing a boost to the entire app economy.

What are the challenges in creating local apps in India? How is the funding scenario in Mobility Space? How is mobile apps sector doing? Who is making money & how they are making money in MobileApp space? What are the new mobile operator initiatives? What is the status of local apps in India?

Is business valuation art or science? Is it possible to place a credible valuation on a Start-up? What is Pre-money valuation? What is Post-money valuation? How much your company worth? Are you really worth anything until you’re profitable? How to value your start-up for a VC? What are the Start-up valuation methods?

Entrepreneurs need to put a value on their start-ups in order to raise money, and investors need to put a value on their investments to ensure an adequate return on investment. No negotiating item between entrepreneur and investor creates a wider gulf than this one. The two parties may agree on every other point but will have diametrically opposing views on what the start-up is worth and how much equity the investor should receive in exchange for his capital.

Valuation is challenging for a start-up. Since young businesses take time to become profitable, the trick of valuing start-ups is to focus on the future. If you want your start-up to be a masterpiece, you’ll need to use the right side of your brain as much as your left to determine value.

Do drop in to get insights into Art/Science of valuation of Start-ups from an interesting line-up of speakers, who have been there, done that in terms both raising capital or funding the start-ups.

Dear All,

By nature of our existence, we are embedded in relationships. We make new relationships as we move from school to college, college to work. When we change jobs, cities, house, we make new contacts and lose touch with some others. Hence, as we move in our lives, we add ties, drop ties, strengthen few ties and we weaken few more, etc. Therefore, by the time we are inclined to set up a venture, we have a large set of contacts. More often than not, this network of contacts is the most significant resource aspiring entrepreneurs can have access to.

Individuals rely on their network of contacts extensively before, during and after setting up a venture. Research has shown that entrepreneurs use their networks to identify opportunities, mobilize resources, improve legitimacy, get customers, etc. While we instinctively network, the methods and the process we use may not actually be the best. Over the last two decades we have significant understanding of how networks help entrepreneurs.

What type of networks will help you in your venture? Who are the people you need to talk to before you launch your venture? Who should you talk to once you start your venture? How to maintain ties? Of what use are social networking sites to maintain relationships? It is time to understand your networks better. Prof. Suresh B of IIMB an expert on networks will anchor this event.
