Caselet • Three young aspiring engineers decide to set up an apps company whilst still at college • Their capital requirement is minimal since at this stage they all feel they need to do is to develop specific apps – something each one is good at. They don’t need to hire anyone for this stage • They would however like to “sell” the downloadable apps to consumers in a pilot mode before deciding the next course of action • They have thought of a name for their business – Zappapp – and have decided to pool in about Rs 1,50,000/= as start up capital for any miscellaneous expenses that may be required • They plan to build a portal and to host it on the cloud • They are not sure if they want to take up jobs after graduating or want to stay with their startup • They do realize that for them to grow and scale they will need to infuse money in the future from investors. They don’t know how much and when What form of enterprise would you advise them to set up?
