Whether you already identify as an entrepreneur or you simply have a yearning to explore a different path, this program will accelerate your skill development and open new doors.

The word ‘entrepreneur’ comes from a French word meaning ‘to undertake’. There are all sorts of myths out there about entrepreneurs being high-risk gamblers, but nothing could be further from the truth. They take on risk, but they learn to manage risk to their advantage.

In this video from Bootcamp program director Bill Aulet, he defines the often misunderstood practice of entrepreneurship and dispels the common myths about what it takes to be successful.

The Ten Minute Million (TTMM)

What Everybody Ought To Know About The Ten Minute Million

We all are aware of the lengthy and tedious process of fundraising which is essential for every startup in its early stages to succeed. To cut short this process and revolutionize the way fundraising is traditionally done, The E-Cell IIT Bombay launched first edition of ‘The Ten Minute Million’ (TTMM) 3 years ago. Currently into its 4th edition, TTMM has managed to help one out of every two finalists raise funding. The 4th edition is going to be held on 27th and 28th January 2018 at the E-Summit of IIT Bombay.

 

The Ten Minute Million is first of its kind event in India, which involves 10 shortlisted startups pitch for 10 minutes in front of the investor panel and get an on-spot funding commitment for 1.6 million INR. Ajit Khurana, one of the investor panelists and Ex-CEO of SINE, IIT Bombay said, “Our idea was that, you take 10 months, we believe it can be done in 10 minutes. I would have been happy even if I had got a fraction of the response. Right from the entrepreneurs, to the investors to the audience, this is an absolutely outstanding response.”

 

TTMM has garnered a lot of attention from media in its past three editions and has helped many startups reach milestones in their journey. One of the successful startups is Soundrex, who came up with a wearable speaker which will provide an experience of being immersed with thousands of speakers all around you. With control over tens of thousands of speakers, they created sound effects which were impossible using a 2 speaker setup.

 

In this hyperpaced, exciting event, the tension and ecstasy can be felt among the crowd as well. The past Investor panel consisted of renowned angel investors like Ajeet Khurana, Bharat Banka, Anupam Mittal, Samir Shah, Sanjay Mehta and Anirudh Damani.

 

The registration deadline is on 28th Dec 2017, and the finalists will be declared shortly after. It is an opportunity that no start-up should miss, what with such a fast-track path to funding and getting some pretty cool onboard to be the startup’s mentors.

Traditional businesses will find it difficult to attract investors

Jayanth Sharma | CEO AND CO-FOUNDER OF TOEHOLD TRAVEL AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Q : In this era of online startups and tech businesses, does there exist the possibility for traditional brick and mortar businesses to raise capital or is it that only businesses with a technology layer to scale up are attracting investors?

A : This is a common question that investors get asked a lot by aspiring entrepreneurs and there are a few different perspectives we have.

Firstly, businesses without a technology layer are going to find it almost impossible to attract investors -simply because technology is what brings scale and efficiency and in many situations access to customers. And venture investors are all looking for scale because that is what will give the exits that we require for our success.

That said, technology in a business does not make it a technology company.

Srikrishna Ramamoorthy | PARTNER, UNITUS SEED FUND

Businesses across traditional sectors like FMCGretail, education, healthcare, financial services, agriculture, transportation, logistics etc. will continue to need brick and mortar or offline elements to succeed and not just technology alone. And there continues to be VC investor interest in businesses in these spaces that are in techenabled andor tech-led and where there is innovation.

Does this mean traditional businesses with or without tech cannot raise capital? They can, but it is challenging.There aren’t that many investors interested and it will likely involve large amounts of initial capital vis-à-vis investing in a tech enabled play.

All that said, tech or brick and mortar, what remains key to success is a strong team, great execution and a product service that is solving a real problem.
