“ It’s very important to test the product, as frequently as possible. Experiment quickly, think quickly and execute quickly. Entrepreneurs fear going out to the market.”

“Most of the technology startups FAIL in Go to Market”
# Accelerators are very focused on a particular area and have skills in it.
# Incubators generally give infra only.
# TLabs : Takes 10% for Rs. 10 lakhs. Its a 4 month programme with weekly sessions.

# Financial Plan has to be simple, max 24 people
# A Business Plan is important because, when people ask questions, it’s needed to put structure to the conversations.
