Jumpstart your Startup: Liftoff to Escape Velocity – A TiE Institute Workshop
TiE Amaravati kickstarted its activities in the Visakhapatnam region with a workshop “Jumpstart your startup – Liftoff to Escape Velocity” on 15th February 2018 at Sunrise Towers, Visakhapatnam in partnership with AP Innovation Society.
Mr.Abhishek Srivastava, Director, Endiya Partners was the facilitator for the workshop covering the modules of Idea Validation, Go-to-market, Business Plan, Team Building and Fund Raising. The content has been designed to target startups incorporated and into operations looking to grow to the next level.
We saw participation from 25 enthusiastic entrepreneurs, majorly not registered with APIS or any incubators. We also had representation from various media houses to cover the events. The general feedback from the participants has been good. I shall also share an online link with all the registered candidates to share their feedback anonymously. I believe this exercise might provide us with some insights to plan our future events and have good participation levels.
Mr.Ravi Eswarapu has been the CM champion for the event and has invited some mentors to mentor the startups. We had mentoring sessions at the end of the workshop where 5 startups participated and the mentors have recommended some startups to be awarded the passes for TiE Global Summit to be held in Mumbai.
The workshop has been received well by the startups and many enquired about the future events of TiE Amaravati.
