Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship related track of The Goa Project 2016

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:

  1. Creative entrepreneurs in design / performing arts / social impact space

  2. Consumer facing business that is self-sustainable and profitable

  3. Sectors like infrastructure, waste management, renewable energy, engineering, agri-food..

  4. The tragedy of the commons

  5. Useful technologies that require behavioural change / have poor adoption curves..

  6. Developing markets outside India

  7. Difficult to monetize sectors such as music or entertainment

  8. 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.

Life of a small fish in the e-commerce ocean

Submitted Jan 12, 2016

To start a conversation around the current situation of e-commerce businesses. And to get people thinking about whether the buying habits of consumers are being spoilt or improved?

Outline

We live in an era that is supposed to allow and enable people to be able to achieve their dream of being an entrepreneur. But is the environment really as conducive as it is purported to be? With e-commerce giants like Flipkart and Amazon (with deep pockets) fighting it out amongst themselves for consumers and their attention, what chance does a self funded e-commerce start up stand?
