We (Nagarjun Kandukuru, Abhinandan Sangam, Arjun Dev and I) did a Product Management workshop with 4 startups. They are being mentored by World Resources Institute and Centre for Innovation, Incubation & entrepreneurship (CIIE) – IIMA.
There were 2 founders per startup. The startups that participated were:
Commut – Daily commute in Hyderabad
Dryve: Two-wheeler rentals in Bangalore
HopOn | Employee Transport Management
Next2Metro – Local Places Info Nearby Any Metro Station – Delhi-NCR
Here is the agenda of the day:
We used the Product Management Canvas too.
It was a wonderful day and the commitment & energy of these founders was inspiring.
IIM, Ahmedabad continues to be the best B-School of India. They have a startup incubation center called Centre For Innovation, Incubation & entrepreneurship (CIIE) at IIM, Ahmedabad.
From their website:
Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship was setup at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) with support from Gujarat Government and Department of Science and Technology (Government of India) to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in India.
Their Young IIMAvericks Program enables graduating students who want to startup.
After the Business Modelling sessions earlier, we were invited again to hold a Business Modelling Workshop. The workshop was conducted by me and my fellow ThoughtWorker, Sachin Sapre.
We added a topic on Product Thinking (both of us being Product managers) along with conversation on how to use the Product Management Canvas.
This was their first day / session at CIIE. The response was good and they found the workshop useful in understand the business and question their assumptions.
