I attended a workshop named “Ideation, Design Thinking & Opportunity Spotting” at IISER, Pune on 20th Aug, 2016, by Prof. Dr. Kaustubh Dhargalkar who’s been associated with Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship, IIM Ahmedabad.
It was one of the most mind boggling 8 hours I spent that made me think (hard) about where exactly my startup StomatoBot Technologies is, what’s the road and strategy ahead, how I can spot and leverage opportunities, how do I empathize with customers, how to make my business more efficient everyday, traits of unique business models and what exactly a business model is, etc. etc. etc.
One of the rare workshops where I think I still owe them the money as the fees was just Rs.150, that included lunch & snacks/tea and most of all got to know an awesome mentor!
Thank you Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune & Kaustubh Sir!
