A Delhi Kick start from #GirlsInTech Series from NASSCOM for 10,000 startups, Powered by #40Forward Google for Entrepreneurs’.
It was an event conducted by NASSCOM and sponsored by Google. It was held at Google India facility, Gurgaon. First half of the conference was a session called Half baked, where participants were divided into teams and were supposed to generate business ideas based on the assigned words. It was an icebreaker activity. Then all the team leaders had to share about the business idea in a 30 second pitch. There were some crazy innovative ideas, products and pitches that came out of that activity, namely Biz name, Problems you are solving and Solutions. Further the dialogue was followed by a panel discussion of women entrepreneurs from different fields and their contributions followed by Q&A. The panel comprised of Prukalpa Sankar, Cofounder of Social Cops, Swati Bhargava, Cofounder of Cashkaro, Sukhmani Singh, Co-founder of Seek Sherpa and Aparna Gupta, Managing Director of First Rain India. The ladies had interesting insights to share with the audience and agreed that while there were some disadvantages of being a woman entrepreneur in the tech space, there were several advantages too. Some of the highlights of the panel discussion are mentioned below. “You don’t have to accept money from just anywhere if you aren’t comfortable with the person giving it to you.” – Avani Parekh.
“If investors grill you, it doesn’t always mean they’re attacking you, but want to know if you know your stuff. It’s up to you to dispel the myths that women don’t get or understand technology.” – Swati Bhargava
I look forward to how we can create a rich ecosystem for startups. – Aparna Gupta, Managing Director, First Rain. The post lunch was a Breakaway session, called Word Cafe, where participants were divided into teams and were given some questions like: Fear to start a business idea, Solutions (resources) and Business opportunities for women. To wrap up the entire day’s event, Mrs. Sangeeta Gupta, Vice President of NASSCOM addressed the audience observing that the fears outweighed the resources and opportunities mentioned in the breakaway session and that’s what she hoped would change soon.
