Yesterday we had a small event organized by TiE Chennai Startup SIG (special interest group). About 50 us had several discussions in an un-conference mode. Topics varied from customer identification and development to challenges in growing companies.
There was one session where people were pitching their products. People listening to pitches filled out a form with questions about what they understood about the product, customers, market and value proposition. The goal of the pitch review session was to help entrepreneurs improve their pitch.
We had a panel of three women entrepreneurs who did an amazing job of sharing what they went through in their entrepreneurial journeys. Over 50 people listened with rapt attention, engaged and enthusiastic.
I walked away from the event with one dominant thought in my mind – Entrepreneurs are inspiring. I love being in their company.
