TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs), Silicon Valley headquartered, is an organisation that was founded to nurture young companies and help them grow. There are now "x' Chapters across the globe. We are part of the TiE, Pune Chapter, locally. Namita please fill in this blank.
When one asks any entrepreneur what he needs to get going, the answer we get is "MONEY". This is true for almost all young companies looking to start out. But, what most do not recognize is that besides Money, there is so much more to getting going that, when the shots hit, they knock you over. There are issues on Marketing, making of a Business Plan, options for funding – remember that a Balance Sheet must look different if you are going for either Debt or Equity, and so many more unthought-of obstacles.
With this high-impact capsule, we at TiE would like to launch our Mentorship Program for all young organisations wanting to make it big with their ideas. We will offer guidance in both management and technology for the entire spectrum of businesses across verticals.
The schedule for this event is:
9.30am to 9.45am – a brief introduction to the world of TiE, followed by a Suzuki Violin presentation by very little children.
9.45am to 10.45am – a Financial Workshop by Mr. Nikhil Khattau a Private Equity Investor, who also is on the boards of Marico,
Midday, Nagpur Power & Industries, Paymate, Geodesic Techniques, and with Mayfield Services. Mr. Khatau will take us through
the making of a Business Plan. He will also take financials of 'X' company as submitted to an Investor, and project them against
the same financials, reworked so as to appeal to that Investor.
10.45am to 11.45am – an important session on Marketing by the Guru. R. Sriram co-founder Next Practice Retail, and the man who
started Crossword, will share his experiences and insights on Customer Based Innovation – for a decisive competitive edge. He will also talk about the 'all-important' Branding aspect of Marketing.
11.45am to 12.15pm – Tea
12.15pm to 1.30pm - The Chief Guest of the Mentoring program, Baba Kalyani will share his experiences and insights into `Building a Modern, Global and Sustainable Enterprise.
