Do you need access to expertise in specific areas outside your own domain?

I think we can help you. Experts from the Pune Open Coffee Club have stepped up to offer 'Office Hours' where they meet with you 1:1 to discuss your pain points.

If you'd like to see an Office Hours not listed here, leave a comment with this thread and we will try to get it setup.

If you would like to create your own Office Hours and share your expertise.

Simply add a post in the forum and mention your background, area of expertise, any expectations that you have from attending startups, and how startups can reach you directly.

Email me when you've created the post and I will include it here in this master thread. Thank you for providing this valuable service.

And so how do we reach to you, to seek this guidance & support ?

Do you also help us to get funding for non-product ventures ?

As we need the small funding, what do we do ?

Kindly provide us your contact details to reach to you

& all possible options for the support we need.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Kabir,

For funding needs,

I'd request you to post an introduction of your venture, the funding you require, any other details, such as the background of the founders in the forum.

Best regards,


Hi Kabir,

Further to what Santosh wrote, we are on the lookout for prospective investors and organize investor meets as an opportunity presents itself. In February there were two of them. Such meets are announced here and over google groups.


Hello Santosh, 

So how does this thing work. How do I contact people. 



Hi Chaitannya, Kabir,
