This year (2016) The Goa Project features a separate track on Entrepreneurship.
Any form of Entrepreneurship is not easy. But there are specific sectors that are more challenging than the others. If you are trying to build a sustainable organization in a difficult and / or unglamorous market, this is a great opportunity to show case it to the world. Please come and share your success stories, failures, learnings and experiences.
Some examples (but not limited to) are:
Creative entrepreneurs in design / performing arts / social impact space
Consumer facing business that is self-sustainable and profitable
Sectors like infrastructure, waste management, renewable energy, engineering, agri-food..
The tragedy of the commons
Useful technologies that require behavioural change / have poor adoption curves..
Developing markets outside India
Difficult to monetize sectors such as music or entertainment
Any thing else and more..
The emphasis is not really on the sector or even the problem-opportunity-solution. Tell us how you are cracking the challenges of adoption, sustainability and scalability. Even if it is Work in Progress, there is a lot we can all learn from you.
