The entrepreneurs who assemble there will get enlightenment from the panel on their own experiences and also can ask questions. The Open House that follows the panel discussion will be a fertile ground for wisdom of the crowd. You can brainstorm, talk to the panelists, discuss a point of view or even get advice. If preachings are only that happen, then there would be no takeaways. But if there is a discussion specifically related to an entrepreneurial problem, the takeaways are valuable. With this mind, we have deviced the Round Tables to inspire, enlighten, and drive the budding entrepreneur. While the big Micromax story will be an inspiration, panel discussion will be enlightening and your own clarifications will drive you higher.
