‘Starting up’ -a cool new show on ET Now for Startups!


I’m glad that so many business news channels are coming up these days. With increasing competition the creativity in content is also visible. I accidentally watched this program while I was surfing my idiot box for something useful and AILAA I got that! Just the kind of show which I was looking for.

With increasing number of shows and channels, its like winning a lottery when one is able to find something which he/she is looking for! And that feeling is amazing. OK! now let me tell you about the show ‘Starting Up’-

In the first section, they showcased the final round of Conquest’09 which held at BITS, Pilani sometime back. There was also a short interview with founder of the winning team ‘Alchemy’ [I dont remember exactly if that was the name of the winning team :)]. In another section they featured CIIE i.e. Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship of IIM Ahemedabad. They told in every detail about the incubation center and its initiatives and also the link where we can apply for incubation, if one is interested.

After that came a very interesting section, ’empresario’. They featured one design and branding firm which is been run profitably by one person. After he showcased his expertise he was given guidance by Mr. Sanjeev Aggarwal,
Managing Director – Helion Venture Partners (which was really encouraging).

The last section featured another founder from foodaholics who managed to start the business just by using her personal savings of 50k. The section was meant for early stage ventures who are hungry for investments :).

Over all a very likeable and informative show for all the startup enthusiasts. Do enjoy next time it features (Sun at 1:30 PM)!

And yeah, keep looking for updates from iDubba as we have launched as a mini ‘iDubba’ service :). Check it out!
