Hi Santosh,
Thank you for the invite. I truly enjoyed the session. Did not expect to see so many people. Lots of "Gyan" acquired. I will face most of the things mentioned in the meet very soon, when i have my own startup. Would love to do more networking in the next meet. This was more akin to the situation where the parents/guardians ( startup veterans) were giving "gyan", but i think the kids ( startup newbies like me) would love to play among themselves, in fact they could learn a lot from each other as well.
Thanks again,
Hope to be in the next meet and also meet you in person.

HI Santosh. It was a good session. It was my first event with POCC. Learned few important things about recruitment which was very much important for me at this stage of my business. Looking forward to get some more such nice sessions.

Hi Santosh
Thanks for the Invite. The core team is definately a pillar stone for the success or failure of any start up. IDeally a team with Mixed strength can be a gr8 team. Having said that The vision needs to be very clear from day one and all are committed to throughout.

Hiring high-quality people, in my opinion is NOT one of their primary challenges, paying them what they deserve is. India has some of the finest talent in the world, and with the recession many are easily available. Many start ups I've seen, do not have the ability nor the inclination to plan for and finance their business with a 5 year perspective in mind. This leads to cost cutting and also, obviously, scrimping on pay packets. Then the famous saying "If you pay peanuts, you will only get monkeys" starts operating.
