Being an entrepreneur myself, this workshop has helped me know what I could have done better at the time of launching my business some years back. The process driven areas like competitive analysis and other business models that were covered in depth was not something that was worked upon earlier. But now we would be able to apply that in our business.

Sarvesh Prasad

The session was very knowledgeable and could relate to 90% of things covered in the workshop. The remaining 10% of the information provided will enable me to fill the gaps in running my business. It also gives me some ready solutions to put the missing pieces in my business together. I feel that this session would have been very useful for me if I had attended it 6 months before when we were starting our business.
