Masterclass on "Strategy for Young Companies"

Short Brief:

It is often believed that “Strategy” is too lofty a concept with young companies and start-ups, who are struggling to keep themselves afloat and alive, where the fight for survival is a daily battle. In fact, Strategy is perhaps most relevant to such companies.

Strategic decisions (or indecisions) during the founding stages of a Company can make or break its growth journey. Before plunging into the market, it is helpful to step back and think about the USP of the product/service, how the USP is to be articulated, the Target audience for the company, the organization structure and personnel who will man the company, the geographies in which the company proposes to venture, etc. One wrong step in these basics will severely mar the company’s chances of success.

The Masterclass on Strategy for Young Companies

  1. will attempt to explore the above strategic thought processes for founders, aided with large number of real-life examples of companies which did or did not think through this process well enough, and the consequences
  2. Attempt will be made to assist the Founders into thinking deep about these crucial elements, and come up with differentiated strategies which may make their fight for survival a lot easier
