||You are a consultant, engineer, marketer, or someone with a bright idea. How do you evaluate your idea and evolve it into a detailed business plan? Our March speaker, Krishna Uppuluri, author of "Engineer to Entrepreneur - The First Flight", will take his engineering entrepreneurial concepts and translate them into consulting entrepreneurship blueprints.|
The seminar will focus on the business lifecycle and will include analysis of ideas, founding team dynamics, marketing, sales, and funding - with particular emphasis on consulting services business. The goal of this seminar is to provide a few degrees of early correction to demonstrate how entrepreneurs can avoid many degrees of deviation, later, during their entrepreneurial flight. You'll learn how to assess your idea and develop a Startup Blueprint that addresses the following questions:
--How do you assess a market opportunity (products or services)?
--How do you make your services compelling and differentiated?
--How do you leverage your services, with vertical integration?
--How do you market and sell your services beyond your immediate eco-system?
--How do you forge partnerships with other vendors for synergy and the potential for M&A?
Bring your ideas and questions to enhance the value of the seminar. We look forward to your participation.
