Startup Plan

Hello Guyz

Hope U all will be doing good.

My Introduction : Not any more a UPSC aspirant and want to start a startup in the field of education industry.

I know there are many IITians/IIM. Please guide me how can i get funding for my startup. I have met many people but failed to generate any funding.

Secondly, If any1 is in the same boat and want to collaborate, we can find some way to resolve this together.

Any lead will be appreciated. You can contact me at startupsutra100@gmail.com so that i could share my plan.

Thanks :)

    You wont get funding just like that.

    Start your venture in a sole proprietorship mode or as partnership if you have anyone with you.

    Step 1: Decide what you want to do?

    Step 2: Where are you going to bring the skills from? You or 3rd Party?

    Step 3: What is the scope for this idea in the market?

    Step 4: What is the market size?

    Step 5: What are the market dynamics?

    Step 6: Who are your competitors?

    Step 7: What will be your USP?

    Step 8: How long will it take to develop the product or service?

    Step 9: Do you have adequate resources? How do you procure them?

    Step 10: Is there a small workspace to start?

    Step 11: Website and Digital Marketing, How, Who, How much?

    Step 12: Portfolio, Business cards, Brochures etc

    Step 13: Marketing team and strategy

    Step 14: Short term and long term goals

    Step 15: Work for 6 months and achieve a few targets, this 6 months is your time to find angel investors, forget VC's if the product is not disruptive.

    Step 16: Once you find the investors, register as a Pvt Ltd Company (Study companies act before that)

    Step 17: Your start up journey will then officially begin!!!

    All the best!

    Yes, your own money, unless you know some friend who can help you out, other than that, tough!

    Or else, there are these competitions where u can pitch in ideas, if your idea wins, maybe you will get some funding. But it's all time consuming. Time is money in business. Better to start with your own money!
