However, every once in a while, I come across someone who consistently corrects other people's mistakes. Someone who seems to get it. And who am I to complain if that someone happens to be a giant robot dinosaur named FAKEGRIMLOCK? As it turns out,…

Nurturing the Pune Startup Eco-System Through Communities

Pune also hosts a number of other organizations aimed at Entrepreneurs - CSI-Pune, SEAP, TiE, NASSCOM to name a few. How is this different? To begin with, the OpenCoffee Club is an informal format. In other words, anyone could announce and arrange… Continue

Hey Santosh,

Its been a long time since I met you at persistent a couple of years ago. Can we have a separate page or  focused group for non IT/ITES startups/businesses? I know IT/ITES is the opportunity that most people look for, but there are a few who are purposefully looking for opportunities and guidance in areas other than those. For them, this forum is a challenge looking out for the kind of discussions they are looking for. Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack of IT/ITES related discussions and posts. Can we try having a separate focus group/page for a few days at-least and see the response to it. If it doesn't add value we can revert back to how we have right now.
