This entire program is run by Nikhil Bhaskaran.I am startup founder myself and I started this originally to solve my own problem of not finding enough techies.
Q)Why should I join this program?
A)Technology business has become very demanding.Technology is the base needed to build a tech business but there is so much more after technology challenges r solved. As a startup, if your team is stuck solving tech challenges and by doing it alone or in a small closed group your tech doesn’t evolve enough, your chances of succeeding in a highly competitive tech world reduces a lot. By joining us we bring collective intelligence to work on solving technology challenges so you get more time to grow your business.
Q)Doesn’t this worry you that there will be so many people who know the tech and it will create competition?
A)We think a business is much more than technology.In fact, technology is only an enabler and 30% of a business. The business idea and execution is what we believe makes a winner.So even if many have access to same technology you will win if you have better entrepreneurial qualities and solve something that the world needs more.
Besides competition is global and not local by refusing to spread tech in India we don’t eliminate global competitors and usually due to their collaborative work culture they make it faster.
