Pune: Representatives of more than 300 start-up companies, aspiring entrepreneurs and some college students from across the state gathered at 'Startup Meet Pune' on Sunday.
Startup Meet Pune is a platform for knowing the general market scenario and understanding better business from unique speakers including Digital Marketing experts and Seasonal Entrepreneur experts.
Startup Pune also launched, 'Pune Young Leaders Programme' where start-up companies will be nominated and the best will be awarded after a year depending on the idea and popularity of the company.
Anand Jhanwar, Co-Founder of Startup Pune said, "These days it is noticeable that youngsters are trying their luck in opening up their own start-up. Some get good scope in it, while some land up in problems. To sort out these problems and give a better understanding on starting up a new business and to motivate the unique ideology that these youngsters have, this kind of a meet is necessary in the start-up world."
The speakers at the meet motivated the audience by relating personal experiences and explained the importance of pursuing their own dreams rather than going on a path where their creativity will not be appreciated.
Snehal Deshpande, a speaker at the Startup Meet and Digital Marketing Entrepreneur of Akrel Media, said, "There are many who are scared to start their own business as they lack in confidence and finance. The only option here is that one should have a unique idea to get popularity in the market. It is not difficult to open a start-up in this competitive world, only if the business is different from others'."
