Founder, Fusion Charts and member, NASSCOM Product Conclave Organizing Committee
Starting up is not easy. You have to wear a hundred different hats at the same time. Building team, product design, coding, testing, marketing, selling, finance, admin, HR and everything else that comes along the way (or in the way). Does the very thought of this deter you from setting off on your dream journey? Does it push you back to your 9-to-5 tryst with that big company with fancy buildings, where you are a resource known by an ID rather than your first name?
Consider again. There hasn't been a better time to be a part of the Indian product scene. The industry is gathering momentum and is expected to grow to US $12 billion by 2015. VCs are more confident than ever of investing in Indian product companies. The brightest minds are bored of doing mindless jobs and are looking to work on "real projects" that add "real value" to the ecosystem. IT consumption in domestic market is growing by leaps and bounds. More and more mentors are willing to spend time with startups to make them the next big success story. Internet and mobile are becoming key-enablers in reaching out to markets which you never knew existed, and most of it for free. So what are you waiting for?
Come and hear from people who have been there and done that, validate your idea with industry experts, participate in un-conference sessions, understand lean startup models, learn about the new opportunities that exist in the market and network with VCs & angels….come, feel the pulse of the Indian software product industry. All of this at the NASSCOM Product Conclave, the Mecca for Indian product companies, on 10th and 11th November in Bangalore.
