Bootstrap Bhubaneswar aims to bring together all young city-based entrepreneurs. The members meet every third Sunday of the month to have informal discussions, share experience and suggest solutions to each otherâ€™s problems.
Sakyasingha Mahapatra, one of the founding members Bootstrap Bhubaneswar says,” Bootstrap Bhubaneswar is the community for all entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs of the Temple city Bhubaneswar, where none of the entrepreneur is a coach nor come here to help others. It is all about to learn, to discuss your own business issues in a friendly environment.”
Along with Mahapatra, Sanjay Mohanty took the idea from Bootstrap Bangalore to replicate a model in Bhubaneswar that started in December last year. The group has already conducted nine meetings and is gradually gaining momentum.
The name bootstrap signifies that an entrepreneur has no backups and he has to build everything himself. Members feel that entrepreneurial journey is considered very arduous and the social and family support is mostly lacking.
Bootstrap Bhubaneswar has an official Facebook group with 780 members. The time and place of their monthly meet is notified on the social networking site well in advance and the interested members turn up. The meetings are usually held in mornings and are affectionately called Bootstrap at Breakfast.
Discussions are done there in a very informal manner. The meetings begin with introduction of the members and of all the topics that come as suggestions, the discussions take place on selective ones.
With every session, more and more enterprising members from various fields are joining the bandwagon. So, if you are an entrepreneur from Bhubaneswar, then join this “give and take away platform” today. (The Telegraph)
