Global Vistar is a B2B marketplace helping consumer brands build their distribution networks. We are building an end-to-end distribution platform that empowers brands, big and small.

Pranav and I, co-founders of Global Vistar, are childhood friends and partners. Fast forward to 2020, fresh out of college, we stepped into the start-up world with a bunch of friends. After facing the uncertainties in the ideation stage, our friends chose conventional careers. But Pranav and I were gritty enough to stay. 

In 2021, we started with an e-commerce platform for good foods. However, the real struggle of the food manufacturers was distribution rather than e-commerce exposure. That realization pivoted our course, and Global Vistar was born.

Our roles naturally unfolded as we faced challenges - Pranav, has a keen eye for execution, and I, have a strategic approach. This creates a harmony of action and vision at Global Vistar. 

We have been starting up for four years. Today, Global Vistar is at its early stage looking for early traction for its MVP. 

From thick and thin, our perspectives, patience, camaraderie, and resilience as co-founders have only grown stronger.
I'll be hosting the special gathering in Pune on this Friday morning - eChai's Fundraising Social - focused on bringing together a small group of startup founders and supporters.

This get-together is all about having honest and open talks with each other, sharing our stories of trying to raise funds, the ups and downs, and everything in between.

🚀Key Takeaways from eChai Ventures Sales Strategy Meet Up (I Moderated) at Ideas to Impacts Hub! But That's Just the Tip of the Iceberg!

What an energy-charged 2.5 hours we had yesterday (Saturday, Feb 10th’24)! As your moderator, I was blown away by the depth of knowledge and practical tips shared by our Panelist.

1: Suvikas Bhandari - VP of Straget and GTM at Pazcare
2: Shyam HN - Co-founder and CEO at Boomerang
3: Supriya Rao - MD India ClearRoute

Here's just a taste to whet your appetite:

Winning Game:

⭐️ Mastering Lost Deals: Suvikas Bhandari ji urged us to analyze even with high conversation rates, as the "why" behind lost cases holds the key to future wins.

📚Salesperson's Bookshelf: Get inspired and boost your negotiation skills with "Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It. Book by Christopher Voss and Tahl Raz”, and "The Art of War - Book by Sun Tzu”, recommended by Suvikas ji.

⭐️Scaling Your Sales Dream Team: Shyam HN shared a framework for building a high-performing sales development team, including adapting outreach channels to target personas and optimizing for results.

⭐️Building Trust, Closing Deals: Supriya’s insights on handling objections with intelligence and honesty resonated deeply, emphasizing the importance of trust in the sales journey. She also stressed prompt communication, responding within 24-48 hours and keeping prospects informed.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg! This post only scratches the surface of the valuable knowledge shared during the session.
It's an event of miracle when you find Friends who are Visionaries and Founders who are Friends. But the rarest event is when you find all of it together.✨

Hosted an eChai Ventures Masterclass on Agri Startups with one such team of The Farm - P Ritesh Sarvesh Ghangale and @Dinesh Mandhare.

Talked about the power rural entrepreneurs can bring to the startup economy. And inspired many to start their Agri Startup.

Very interesting and insightful! One of the Houseful and Loved eChai Meetup in PCMC!
