XIMB start-up cell hosts Kickstart conclave

Be consistent in your efforts and believe in your idea, say speakers at X-SEED event

X-SEED, the Entrepreneurship Cell of XIMB, held its annual business conclave ‘Kickstart’ on August 31. The theme of the conclave was “Partage D’ Experience”.

The speakers for the occasion were Saurabh Dayal and Rajat Tuli. The session was moderated by Cini Mohanty, Executive Officer of Confederation of Indian Industry.

The first speaker, Saurabh Dayal, co-founder of ClearDekho.com, narrated his journey from the corporate world to the one of start-ups. He spoke about how he turned his failures into a big success by never giving up and being consistent in his efforts. One key piece of advice he offered is to have the right team with varied skill-sets, who are willing to give their best. He concluded by saying “There should be a right marriage between the partner and the brand.”



The second speaker, Rajat Tuli, co-founder of Happily Unmarried and Ustraa, spoke about how the evolution of the internet has broken the traditional barriers for start-ups in India. He emphasised the importance of believing in your idea and having a strong brand and product. He concluded his talk by asking the audience to think big, to be honest, and to be innovative.

The session was followed by an interactive Q&A session. Cini Mohanty asked the speakers insightful questions regarding the start-up industry, and the floor was opened for further questions from the audience. Akash Agarwal, student coordinator of X-SEED, delivered the vote of thanks.
