I like to call myself a Chicken Entrepreneur. This is because I feel that the difference lies in 'staying there' with your startup in most crunch situations and not chicken out.
Our Startup just completed 3 years. Feels Great, was naive (still am) and had practically zero money with me when I came to Bombay three and half years ago. Some really good People supported us by giving their offices, funds, free services, mentorship and lotsa warmth to start InOpen. We owe a lot to them. However, We had plenty of passion and belief for Ourselves. That did the trick. This has been most important learning of my life till today; Businesses can be built on faith on Belief. Other stuffs follow. In this pic, I am at first client's place.
When I got started in my college I didn't knew that a word called 'startup' existed (honestly) and till date I get spelling of 'entrepreneurship' wrong. Thanks to Auto correct
I have tried to share some thoughts over a presentation which will help the so called chicken Entrepreneurs (like me) to sustain their startup. Please share yours
Here is it :
Stay Calm, Move On.
Your story sounds so different from the many stories I read on this site - it's more subtle, and refined, and mature. You conveyed a lot in few words - a talent very few people have.
I hate ppts. They are childish and almost always reek of immaturity. Your's is definitely an exception.
Would love to know more about your start-up journey :)
Thanks Nishant. I am living my startup journey every day. Its challenging but thats the whole fun. Rupesh
WOW Rupesh !!! Excellent synthesis of chicken's journey right from the egg :) love your insights and they are coming my way when I am working on my start up !!!! Thanks for sharing and yes keep on sharing on this forum
Thanks Mandar ! am glad you liked it. Its an amateurish ppt. Was away from Rodinhood for a while due to schedule. Glad to see the progress which this group has made. Alok and Team is doing a wonderful job.
That assume --> ass-u-me is Epic :D . I assume a lot and 90% of em dont work at all!!
Great PPT & All the best for InOpen!!
People Ass-u-me and then conclude on those assumptions. See it happen everyday. Taking an outside view is really really imp. We all need to stop assuming on critical stuffs. If at all something has to be assumed, it has be ones grit, passion and belief.
Thanks Venkat ! I am glad you liked it. A lit bit crude though
It was a delight going through your ppt.. amazing and best wishes!!
Thanks Anamika ! I am glad you liked it
