Today I had a honour of being an judge for ““Art Of Elevator Pitch” event of IIM Bangalore. It just made me realise how far we have come with “bounty”. Remembering the early days when I started pitching to investors. It takes 100’s of meetings of different investors and still the fundamentals remain unchanged. Its always the first 2 minutes that makes an impression which will lead to the “Yes” or “No” decision.
The participants from IIM we equally competent. What was more interested was the interactions with the audience. I was blown away with the kind of questions asked. There was hot debate on social impact of startups to investor attitudes! It was great answering some of the questions and also share some experiences with the “bounty” journey so far.
I always heart startups and young minds trying to startup. Would be more than happy to connect with anyone looking for mentoring beyond this event too. Feel free to connect with me on Linkedin.
