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

I’ve been helping the Pune OpenCoffee Club bootstrap itself here in Pune. The community is designed to help Tech. Startup enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, developers, advisor's, Investors and everyone else create a central place for networking.

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.
