I just returned from IIM-A after talking to students on ” Is a Startup right for them” and “Investors & Business Plans”. Beerud , CTO of Webaroo and earlier founder of e-Lance was also there and spoke on ” Start up: What it takes”.

IIM – A is thinking of having a business plan competition with a difference where few shortlisted firms would present to a panel of seed stage investors and try and close a seed round. Sounds like a good idea. Let them know what you think. The organizers of the “Entre” club read venturewoods.

Reflecting as I returned ( lot of time to reflect as my flight was delayed) I felt that the time may be right for IIM – A and other management institutes to do a one year entrepreneurship course which gives a certification like an MBA. A large component would be getting your business of the ground. Comments ?
