UnPLuGGd on March 6th, An Event for Entrepreneurs | Be There

By now, most of you might have heard of these statements (from startups/VCs/media etc)

  • You can’t build a global technology company from India without spending a fortune [read: cash strapped startups cannot build one]
  • You always need funding to make it big.
  • Consumer Internet is just not happening in India (i.e. one cannot build a profitable Internet company from India)

Wrong! Several startups have defied these conventional way of thinking and have built a strong business. It’s not that they succeeded in their first venture – some of them tried out whole lot of different businesses, before they tasted success.

“We started a similar business in 1999, went bust and restarted in 2006. – Rudrajeet, Founder of Ideacts [an Indian Tech Startup that serves 10 million Internet sessions/month]

We didn’t plan the consumer service, it was meant to be an enterprise service! And now, TringMe serves 22 million calls a month even though we never ever marketed the service. – Yusuf Motiwala, Founder of TringMe.

So how did they do it? Did they raise cash? How did they get their first customer?

Some of the event speakers include successful entrepreneurs (including the first IP exit from India !)

Hear them share their story/failure/challenges @ UnPluggd Event [www.unpluggd.org] and mingle with fellow entrepreneur, angel investors and VCs.

    I am a 38 yr old serving officer of the Indian Army originally from Bihar state in India, though born and brought up in Lonavla in Pune district of Maharashtra state in India. I am being routed certain plans through the grace of HH Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of the ‘Art of Living’ (AOL) fame for leveraging the fertile land in Bihar for raising the economic indicators of the people staying in Bihar; while indirectly enhancing the Food Security of India in its own small way.

    This aim is planned to be achieved through a Private enterprise operating in Bihar; with its HQ in Pune city in India. The FUNDS for these plans are planned to be procured as Donations or grants from High Net Worth individuals (Indians, NRIs and across the world); Multinational corporations (Indians, NRIs and across the world); and Foundations or Endowments ((Indians, NRIs and across the world) on the visibly genuine benefits of the enterprise.
    At a later stage, funds would be procured from international development agencies like the World Bank, Asian Development Bank etc.
    It is being planned that the enterprise be started on Venture Capital funds. I wonder where to get them from…
