I am supporter of Entrepreneurship Support Program (ESP) and I continue to maintain my rule of speaking for free for Non-profit groups that are doing exciting work.

Background for my presentation:

On a lighter note, if there is a “crash course” on Pre-Entrepreneurship, there is a high probability that it can only lead to someone on a “crash” course :)

All entrepreneurs need a boost in their capacity to execute with minimum resources. First-time entrepreneurs need a double shot of the same. My goal in the one hour is to highlight how a wannabe entrepreneur can prepare to be on the “other side” of the fence. What can one do today when he or she is “not an entrepreneur” to build that additional capacity that will come in handy when he or she really becomes an entrepreneur.

While I believe that “what you do as an entrepreneur” is important for you to succeed, what is more important is “what you do as you lead up to be an entrepreneur“. The talk will focus on some parts of what you can do in preparation for being an entrepreneur.

If you are already an entrepreneur, the topics I will be covering will provide a refresher course on items that you should have been engaged but you might have missed because you had no time :)

Look forward to meeting some of you there.

Rajesh, May I get a copy of your presentation? I very badly wanted to be there but could not – example of what I really wanted to do but could not find the time :-)

First, I love the name of your blog :)

Second, the presentation itself will have very few slides that have anything written on it. Mostly it will be a series of images so I don’t know it will serve any purpose as a standalone presentation.

However, this is a topic that many people have shown interest and I may be speaking on this topic multiple times in the near future.

Will keep you posted and thanks for visiting.
