4. Finding Ideal Customer Profile (ICP): Stressed the necessity of identifying the Ideal Customer Profile (ICP) to optimize marketing efforts and enhance customer acquisition and retention rates.

5. Achieving Product-Market Fit (PMF): Recognized the importance of attaining Product-Market Fit (PMF) to ensure that your product resonates with the needs and preferences of your target market.

6. Importance of User Research: Underlined the critical role of user research in gaining deep insights into customer behavior, preferences, and pain points to inform product development and marketing strategies.

7. Significance of Customer Interaction and Insights: Highlighted the value of ongoing customer interaction and feedback loops in refining products, enhancing user experience, and fostering long-term customer relationships.

Notes from eChai's DeepTech Startups Meetup at Ahmedabad University

How drivebuddyAi started and what drivebuddyAI does?

DBAI is an Automotive AI startup working in the domain of Automotive Aftermarket in the category of ADAS.

What is AI in drivebuddyAI and what are the challenges about Human AI Interactions?
The drivers are usually in touch with our driver trainer team who talks to drivers and comforts them for their better safety and behavioral issues identified by the technology.

How do drivers react to AI alerts and how the resistance is being handled?

The drivers take 10-12 months of efforts to get confidence and comfort with the AI alerts i.e. a typical human psychological phase of accepting a tech in daily work life.

⁠What are the challenges of getting a customer, investors?

DBAI is funded and was raised before Covid in 2020 and since then have progressed towards becoming one of the major players in Indian market.

What are the challenges about hiring talent, building AI models and how it was handled in the case of drivebuddyAI?

Ahmedabad specifically lacks in talent pool required for AI, dbAI has talent pool available in Delhi, Vizag, Pune, Jaipur and all these are mid experience to entry level engineers working under the managent of domain expert AI engineers to solve daily AI challenges.

Typical challenges of building AI involves data collection, data curation, annotations, training, GPUs, model optimization etc. 

The DBAI journey started at a very early stage by using the pre-trained models for perception module to collecting and annotating data for Indian ecosystem when there was no Indian dataset available for building AI on it. The process of annotations, having GPUs for training purpose and managing a complete cycle of the data generation to updating a model with continuious learning is the journey in building AI.

To build AI/deep tech product startups, first one needs to start with whatever is readily available in the market which can give functional accuracy and then building on top of it by the feedback from the users, customers can help building the product focused on a specific domain.
It was such great fun sharing the panel with Ankita De and Varun Trivedi today talking about my favorite things - marketing, community, and founders.

We talked about user research, validating ideas, product marketing, saas market and more. The crowd was brimming with new ideas and entrepreneurial energy.

Thank you Penchala Tharun 🚀 for asking such great engaging questions. I had fun!

Thanks Jatin and eChai Ventures for having me.

For everyone that asked to join HSR Founders Club please dm me. And for anyone that wants to use Bugasura - go right ahead and give it a try.
Grateful for the opportunity to participate in the three-day event hosted by the Royal Academy of Engineering London, for the LIF fellows at Taj West End at Bangalore.

Dhandha ya Startup?

My recent family visit to Jaipur would have been incomplete without a quick check-in into the start-up ecosystem. A few conversations with Headstarters and a last-minute meet-up with eChai Ventures helped me understand-

1. Jaipur and Rajasthan as a whole believe in business = profit > massive growth
2. Fundraising doesn't take as much precedence as building a sustainable business
3. Some of the most renowned start-ups and businesses like CarDekho Group, Razorpay, DealShare, and even Dexter Ventures have started and been built in Jaipur
4. The community is nascent, close-knit and growing
5. A lot of talent, very good talent is available thanks to the number of colleges and coaching institutes in the region

A shoutout to everyone who made time on short notice to help me get a sneak peek into Jaipur and the Rajasthan ecosystem - Paresh Gupta, Tushar, Prateek Mathur, Vinay Kamal, Chetan Saini, Rahul Singh.
Jatin Chaudhary and Gautham Sivaramakrishnan Headstart Network Foundation always help me find the best people to connect with across the country and the world.

If you have been to or built-in #Rajasthan, I would love to hear your thoughts. Do tag anyone you would like me to meet the next time I'm in Rajasthan.
Hey Manoj, what do you do?
.
.
.
I had never thought, that this simple question can be so difficult to answer. Here is how my answer to this question has changed in last 3 years.

• Until Feb 2021, before I left my Corporate job - I am a Technology Risk Manager at Barclays, Singapore 👜

• From Mar 2021 to July 2022 - I am Founder of Bizsomia ⚽

• After we stopped working on Bizsomia - I found myself grappling with an Identity crisis as I struggled to define my professional narrative 🌶

• Between Aug 2022 to Dec 2023 - Though I was doing various things such as Consulting, Running Course and Hosting podcast, still I had no definite answer 🤐

• Jan 2024 onwards - I am Director at WebOsmotic and Co-Founder at narad.io 🚀

Transitioning from a Corporate job to the Startup world isn't just about starting something new; it's about persevering through the challenges and maintaining your sense of identity along the way.

P.S : Today marks my 3 year anniversary in Startup Ecosystem and I am proud of my journey 😎
Your Gateway to Informed and Efficient teams

Thank you GUSEC for this felicitation and recognition. I cherish my association with your esteemed incubation centre since the time of its inception.

These years have helped me groom myself as a mentor and I am pretty sure I could contribute a little in the growth and success of those early stage #startups that approached me for mentorship and guidance. 

Looking forward to further this relationship and nurture more entrepreneurs in the times to come!
It was a super event hosted by Malav Warke at DevX Andheri in Mumbai.

Honoured to be part of the speaker Panel. It was Great to meet Udit Goenka - and I realised that there is a lot to learn from him.

Keep Up the good work eChai Ventures.
Going forward apna will be the official partner of AICTE to help all Engineering and Management graduates find a job and help them in career discovery. Honoured to exchange an MoU with AICTE, led by esteemed Prof. Sitharam T.G, Chairman of AICTE.

“There is no dearth of jobs, we just need to connect students with opportunities. We are thrilled to announce that Apna and AICTE will make this happen for all India’s Engineering and Management College students.”

The ceremony was graced by the august presence of Union Minister of Education, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan-ji, Secretary Higher Education Shri K Sanjay Murthy, UGC Chairperson MAMIDALA JAGADESH KUMAR, NCVET Chairperson Dr. Nirmaljeet Singh Kalsi IAS (retd), and other dignitaries whose guidance and blessings make this journey even more meaningful.

People ask about weekends,

Your weekends can be worthy too if you are surrounded by the right folks, and for me, they are eChai Ventures and this is what echai friends do.

The day started with chit-chat about the business and was followed by an amazing lunch at Karnawati Club.

Attended an amazing echai demo day, where one friend pitched his new venture on the stage and another shared his success story.

58 Miles Rocks and AllEvents.in has been always inspiring.

Crazy fun weekend with craziness and productivity. Hope to have these keep coming in.

“Prateek, let’s travel across India to know more about the stories of India SaaS”

4 months ago, my co-founder Sri reached out to me with this crazy text and bag full of even crazier ideas. Without a second thought, I knew I was in.

And that's how from Day 0, both of us went all in.

And here we are today—I’m extremely excited to introduce to you, The Bharat SaaS Yatra!

Our vision? To celebrate the Rise of India SaaS, and cover hundreds of stories of SaaS Founders—The wins, the losses, the challenges and everything in between ❤️

Stories not just from the Tier 1 cities, but also the gritty tales from Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities.

Hitting the road for the next 4 months to travel across 20 cities and capture the Fan-SaaStic stories out there.

Wondering, where we’ll meet? In one of the finest immersive SaaS exhibitions that we’re setting up across all the 20 cities. I bet, you’re going to love it!

Hop in with us in the Yatra 🙂

How did I find my Co-Founder?

In 2020, I decided to relaunch an IT company with a focus on a specialized field as opposed to continuing our 2014-founded freelance business. Even though since 2014 we have completed over 300 fixed-cost jobs and about 100,000 hours of freelancing, I was not happy. It's so simple to be a so-called "CEO" in the IT business these days—all you need is a laptop and various accounts on freelance platforms, which you may even open under family names 😂.

But, I've always wanted to start an IT company rather than a freelancing agency. To get knowledge and explore more from other like-minded entrepreneurs across various sectors, I joined BNI Global Surat Region.

There I met Dhaval Vansadia at a chapter meeting a few weeks later. He had a technical background, came from the textile industry, and had expertise in D2C brand consulting.

He is very enthusiastic about networking and enjoys building new connections. We met at our office and after an hour-long discussion, he hired us for a project, and we created an ERP system for his business. that's how he became our first client out of a freelancing portal.

After a year of collaboration, he made the difficult decision to leave his company, which he had invested both money and heart in for eight years. Despite this, we remained close friends and nurtured our relationship.

He spoke to me over the phone one day, "Jatin, what are you doing? This Friday, if you have time, let's get together at your workplace. I miss having coffee from you."

Well, then, why not?

We had coffee together on Friday and during a conversation, he asked "Jatin, Why do most IT companies in Surat fail to become multimillion-dollar companies?"

After an hour-long conversation, I asked him, "If you think you are ready again, let's build Sarvadhi a multimillion-dollar company that would run for years and years, with or without us!"

And he responded, "YES!"

That's how I met my co-founder Dhaval, who serves as Director of Sales and has been in charge of sales since January 2024.

It proved that huge dreams, trust, and a cooperative mindset of mutual growth can all lead to the creation of a great company.

Dhaval Vansadia, welcome to the team. I'm looking forward to working with you after working for you.

If someone asks me if BNI has been helpful, my response is: Indeed, it's worth exploring if you're willing to be flexible and know how to make the most of your network—both for business and for making new friends in different fields.
Had an enriching experience at the eChai Startup Demo Day in Pune last Saturday!

Attended a captivating showcase of startups, and two in particular stood out for their innovative offerings:

#ElektrikExpress : Their focus on the EV space, specifically building electric scooters for gig workers, is truly commendable. What caught my attention was their ability to identify a niche market and offer affordable solutions despite stiff competition. It was inspiring to learn that the founders are still in college, showcasing incredible entrepreneurship at such a young age.

#Phynart : Revolutionizing our homes with smart technology, Phynart impressed with their seamless integration of various smart products through a single app. Their strong revenue generation reflects the effectiveness of their solutions.

Kudos to #eChai Ventures for curating yet another impactful demo day! Looking forward to witnessing more innovation and entrepreneurship in the future.
Startup Learning Series: Understanding ROFR vs. ROFO

ROFR (Right of First Refusal)

➡️ What is ROFR?
The holder has the privilege to match any offer the seller receives before finalizing a deal with a third party. Essentially, they have the right to refuse an initial offer and step in with the same terms.

➡️ Example:
Startup A grants an investor a ROFR. If the startup receives a funding/ acquisition offer from Company X, the investor has the first shot at matching that offer before the startup can proceed with Company X.


ROFO (Right of First Offer)

➡️ What is ROFO?
Unlike ROFR, this gives the holder the first chance to make an offer before the seller approaches others. The seller is obligated to consider this initial offer before entertaining offers from third parties.

➡️ Example:
Startup B gives an investor a ROFO. If the startup decides to sell a portion of its shares, the investor gets the opportunity to present an offer first before the startup explores other options.


Which is more beneficial for Startups?

➡️ ROFO: This can be advantageous for startups aiming to maintain control and nurture strategic partnerships. It provides a structured process for selling shares and ensures that existing stakeholders are considered first.

➡️ ROFR: Startups looking for flexibility might prefer ROFR. It allows them to explore various offers and potentially secure a better deal.


Which is more beneficial for Investors?

➡️ ROFR: Investors seeking security and the ability to protect their investment may lean towards ROFR.

➡️ ROFO: Investors looking for proactive involvement and a first-mover advantage may find ROFO more appealing. It allows them to set the initial terms and potentially secure a deal before others come into play.


Considerations for both Parties

➡️ Negotiation Power: ROFO gives negotiating power to the holder by allowing them to set the initial terms.

➡️ Flexibility: ROFR provides flexibility for sellers to explore various offers before committing.

➡️ Relationship Dynamics: Both agreements impact the dynamics between startups and investors, requiring a careful understanding of the long-term vision and goals.


Conclusion

➡️ The choice between ROFR and ROFO depends on the specific needs and goals of the startup and the investor involved.

➡️ It's not a one-size-fits-all scenario, and understanding the nuances is crucial for creating mutually beneficial agreements.

Insurance Samadhan is India's most trusted platform for the resolution of Insurance Complaints. 

I met my co-founder, Deepak Bhuvneshwari Uniyal, in the year 2019. They had been working on this idea for more than a year and after testing waters and solving a few cases operationally they were looking for someone who could build the technology for this. After meeting more than 35 candidates from the network and job portals, they got my reference through a common connection. 

I had failed in my first start-up but once an entrepreneur always remain an entrepreneur. The conversation happened and we sort of clicked and the rest is history.
 
The discussion was very simple. My CEO just explained to me the concept and what they were looking for from the candidate. The idea looked challenging and I just bought into it. 

As my role (CTO) was the only one for which they were looking for an individual so it was pretty clear from day one.
Last Friday, I had the pleasure of participating in an engaging panel in Hyderabad organized by eChai Ventures in collaboration with Draper Startup House, where we discussed #MarketingStrategies for #Startups.

During the session, I had the opportunity to delve into B2B marketing strategies, while my fellow panellist, Shreyes Manyam from inflooo, expertly addressed B2C queries. The discussion was skillfully moderated by
