  • Hello everybody! being an entrepreneur whys whats hows and more!
  • Who Am I.. what am i doing etc..
  • All of us have thought about it! That voice from within you may not be loud enough now. But it keeps coming up once in a while. it's very fascinating to build something on your own. You know that feeling when you built a kite, remember the feeling of flying your first kite? that you built by yourself! a sense of accomplishment. paper boat! creation.. But not many of us continue to feel that.. or continue to BUILD.. our EC side projects.. 555 timers! or Legos those 'dave' games! Before we know it, we are here..  with the crowd! 
  • what is safe path? Low risk!  you are with the crowd.. if it happens to you, it happens to everybody! comparatively you are no worse!  urge to be different,  get noticed, make lot of money
  • This is what you need..  to build something!
  • You need some IDEA! Magic idea! 1 how to find ideas? 2. market need 3. bridge a gap 4. improve a process
  • build your skill set!
  • money was never problem, it will never be! if you are convinced, you can convince others! you can get funding! thankfully, s/w costs are really really LOW!!
  • + ve attitude I CAN do it! motivation those 3 things are not enough!! build your confidence
  • Aim big! really big, really really big! free..  try more!
  • somewhere between the two.. start early! work for a start  up! Freelance! ship it early, ship it often.. failed!
  • start up is all about 'searching' for a repeatable, scalable & sustainable business model. people WILL discourage test your limits - extend your limits You can't change the cards you are dealt..  it's how well you play it..
  • For some people coding is fun! whatever is fun for you, don't miss it!! Don't keep the fun for future..  Do what you love! don't take yourself too seriously.. nobody else does..
  • So you build a business or make lot of money..  so what?? Be happy! EVening walk! coffee with friend.. 
  • it's not what you know, it's WHO you know that matters. Network with people working for start up.. network with cofounders founders, freelancers
  • Q & A thank you! :)
