Entrepreneurs in nashik get ready for “Sparkpluggers nashik 2014”

Udyogwardhini and Just Nashik have collaborated with Sparkpluggers to provide local support for the workshop.
Sparkpluggers have formulated a unique recipe for helping the wannapreneurs to ex-foliate their dreams over the week end. The workshop is expected to be full of fun filled activities while the participants learn the nuances of business ethics, scaling up and funding etc.
The curriculum is such that the participants will be continuously required to keep their grey cells working at zillion transactions per second. Helping the participants will be seasoned professions and industry experts from diverse fields. Besides Vikram Mehmi, the local mentors viz. Mr. Deepak Kalwit, Mr. Rajesh Shetty, Ms. Alka Singh and Mr. Dinesh Modi will be guiding the participants on how to create a vision for their venture, how to define customer segments, how to connect with customers to validate value proposition, how to define distribution channels and so on.
The participants will go through learning by doing model for selecting best business ideas and refining their business model assumptions within the week end. The participants will have to work late evenings and overnight to finally present their validated business models to the panel of mentors/investors.
Speaking on the occasion of announcing first Workshop at Nashik, Mr Vikram Mehmi, Founder of Sparkpluggers said, “Nashik is our first destination as we want to demonstrate our commitment to promoting entrepreneurship by reaching out to youth in the smaller towns. This is how the countryside can be transformed into a bubbling economy of growth and social change in India”
