Running Musings: Let Procratistination guide you to Action

I have never been much of a procrastinator. However, in the past few months, I had been procrastinating on a couple of issues. One was regarding the purchase of a significantly expensive machine. Though our estimates of savings + revenues had us paying off the machine in 12 months worst case & 6 months best case, the huge temporary dent to my cash reserves + being one of the first in the world to use this untested technology had me procrastinate for almost 3 months. …See More

Running musings: Startups: cheapest money available

Was just running through the calculations of how much interest various kinds of funding available to entrepreneurs cost: 1. Venture funding:  A 10X exit atleast. So basically you are paying a compound interest of 60% annually for that growth. 2. Angel Funding:  More lenient, but still requires a reasonably profitable exit. So would cost you conservatively 30% annual compound interest. 3. Bank Funding:  Typically 16 -18% compound interest. 4. Friends:  They deserve a return slightly better than…See More

Running musings: Do we stand a chance

A discussion with a  newly turned entrepreneur friend regarding the opportunities in India got me thinking. She was convinced that it was impossible to compete with the Reliance’s & TATA’s in a mass market and it was best to focus on niche markets which had plenty of opportunities. Though I do agree with her, I don’t believe the story ends there. I believe that going for a niche market is a great innovative strategy to enter a market. From there you can innovate to capture a larger market.…See More

The 10 lessons I learnt from my Asian Games Campaign

1. Vision: I started my 2006 Asian games campaign as far back as 2002. The vision of a medal in 2006 is what drove me to train from 2002 till 2006. When I started, it was not clear which event I would be participating or the path to get that medal.

The original vision for iLogo was to organize the fragmented & disorganized business of custom T-Shirts globally. This has kept us going through all challenges.

 2. Perseverance &…
