BuiltForFree Winter 2016: A note to budding entrepreneurs5 years ago Guest - Divya Jyothi
Exciting are the times when the whole country is talking about Startups. People are hungry to make their mark, by taking risks and treading the least travelled path.
As our government is trying to encourage startups by giving them tax benefits, cutting hurdles, and increasing the liquidity of investment markets, support systems and groups are popping up all over the place.
BuiltForFree aims to be the platform of choice for entrepreneurs to join hands with volunteers and work under the able guidance of mentors. With the support of a whole group of experienced individuals, a well-deserving idea gets prototyped during the promised 8 weeks of the BuiltForFree ‘Winter 2016 Session’.
While the odds are stacked against a startup in terms of resourcing, finding the right team, validating a non-existing market, raising funds, etc, BuiltForFree, as a community-driven incubation platform, gives the right support and guidance for an already star-crossed startup.
We invite the community to join hands, as we dream to revolutionize, startup incubation. If you are an expert or a startup enthusiast, we invite you to come forward and join the co-creation community.
Last but not the least, do not forget to encourage somebody to take that risk, try a big idea, because, thats the only way we create wealth and opportunity for us and everybody else.
