This session is designed around entrepreneurial groundwork i.e.  'How to come up with Business Ideas, Evaluate and Validate them' to benefit budding entrepreneurs and early stage startups. It is useful for people considering launching a new venture.

The topic will be covered through frameworks such as Effectuation (way of thinking that serves entrepreneurs in the processes of opportunity identification and new venture creation), 3x3x3 (a perspective), minimum success criteria and Lean Startup (a methodology for developing businesses and products).

He will also share a few examples and learnings from his personal experiences in the startup ecosystem.
