Grubshup documentary series is back : From Anil Paranjape

Hey Friends,

after a brief (?) hiatus of almost 2 months, we are ready to notch-up our documentary series, starting this Sunday (18th December) at 10am sharp at Grubshup.  This time, we will screen an amazing documentary, Nero's Guests, depicting the plight of farmers on the backdrop of farmer suicides.  This hard-hitting documentary will surely make us introspect and brainstorm our choices more so that we can make a positive impact on this problem.

Business Stripped Bare – A Book Review

Business Stripped Bare – Richard Branson
This is an inspiring personal account by Sir Richard Branson about his 'Business' journey which, I believe, should be a recommended reading to all the people who have done their MBAs, have tried and failed getting into a MBA institute and even those who have not tried this route to learn art and science of entrepreneurship.
The book is very easy to read and peppered with interesting anecdotes that the author brings to demonstrate his points and principles. The tone of the entire book is very engaging and not at all intimidating. If one were to go through the mind boggling accomplishments of the author in his career spanning 40 years, it would be natural to consider it almost impossible what he has achieved in his lifetime setting up 200 companies in over 30 countries in the Virgin Group. We might be tempted to treat this phenomenon as an exception, which ordinary mortals cannot aspire to achieve. This book is his attempt at demystifying the track record and distilling the principles that he has naturally followed.

Businesses don’t fail; entrepreneurs fail


Businesses don’t fail; entrepreneurs fail. While it sounds impolite and punitive, many a times this is the case. If you are a second time entrepreneur, then you will agree out of your experience that the execution takes the toll and the efficiency at the execution level decides the fate of your business.
Take for example the case of Apple. Apple sensationalised the use of a tablet computer by making iPad Tablet Computer in 2010. But Apple was not the first to introduce the tablet computer to the market. Microsoft had already introduced the concept of a tablet computer way back in 2001-2002 timeframe. So what was the difference between these two entrepreneurial honchos – Bill Gates and Steve Jobs – which made the difference in the sales of their respective tablet PCs? Definitely it was the aesthetic finesse with which Steve Jobs would introduce the products to his customers and his marvellous skill to get his vision executed by his people.
Similar is the case with FacebookMark Zuckerberg’s execution plan was incredible. Remember Facebook was also not the first of its kind social media networking model. MySpace and Friendster were already doing the same thing.
