Henry Ford. Dhirubhai Ambani. Bill Gates.  Mark Zuckerberg. Steve Jobs…

These are not just names, these are titles synonymous with ideas. These are people who have not just done greater things in life than most of us are able to for our own selves, but have left the world with ideas and established the fact that Entrepreneurs not only make profits but very well can revolutionize the way things are taken in the world.

Most of them started early, at the age we are in right now, or probably a little late when an idea struck them. How did they do it? Obviously there was a motivating force behind each one of them but where did they get the skills, the connections, the resources and the knowhow from. How did they come to know what kind of decisions they need to take in order to understand people or in business terms, their market?

More importantly, how can we start doing it at this age? Nowadays we see more and more number of young people starting their own ventures. In Manipal itself we have examples of people walking among us doing great things.

In order to connect the dots ourselves and bring that idea into an implemented plan of action, we need resources and a platform. So we as an anonymous group of students bring a seminar on how you can turn your ideas into achievment. Hear it from people who have done it before, learn it from people who are doing it already. Take back with entry into a platform through which you can explore, connect and achieve.

Youth Leadership Summit- happening this Monday, A.C Seminar Hall, 5 PM.
Enter with an idea, walk out with a motive.

MUTBI’s B-plan competition PROVENANCE’11 saw its final round on 4-5th November. While the teams seemed confident with their plans, the two day long presentation round turned out to be pretty hectic for the panel of judges for it was a 7 and 4 hour long sessions on the first and second day.

Team SEC met the jury on an informal session wherein, future improvements that might be needed for the E-cell were discussed. Finishing it off on a high, we hope provenance ’11provided all participants, SEC members and other people involved with great insight into planning a business. And for the winners and runner ups, this should be the correct platform to START-UP.!



“Sometimes all you need is the right thing at the right time…That’s what sir gave us today” were the words of one of the attendee’s of the workshop  ‘ How to prepare an effective, detailed business plan ‘ By Prof. Ramana from TAPMI which was conducted today, (8th October’2011) by Manipal University and Technology Business Incubator (MUTBI)  Team. The 2 hour long interactive session saw sir at his best , coming up with real time examples of companies from Bisleri to Apple(Yes , how could we forget Jobs).

Some vital important points for the participants of Provenance’11 who are aiming at giving a Winning B plan presentation and anyone else who want to plan their business

  • Focus on the Unique Selling Quotient(USP) of your product. Your product should talk for you. So does your B-plan presentation.
  • Avoid generalisation, Be specific in terms of figures and numbers.
  • When planning the marketing aspects , List down FAB’s(Features, Advantages(in terms of profit to you), Benefits(to the customer).
  • Scan your competition properly and mention in the presentation accordingly.
  • Comparable analysis of profitability of your product with peer companies can be included in the presentation.
  •  Identify the feasibility and viability of your product in terms of the need of same in present day scenario.
  • Be as realistic as possible to your customer. Promise only things what you can provide with hundred percent certainty.
  • Your presentation should have a clear Target segmentation (geographic location of market, distribution)
  • Try to give realistic sales volume, because this tends to be uncertain till the plan is on paper.
  • Special attention on After sales services
  • Give the retailers an incentive to finance you in your presentation as well. Mention your expected sources of funds as clearly as possible.
  • Keep your finance plan simple, and feasible.
  • Give details of assumptions and sensitivity analysis.
  •  Reflect balance between short term and long term goals.
  • Lastly, Analyse risk and try to include risk reduction methods in your presentation.

If I were to brief all that he said in one line I will say You can only put up an excellent B plan if you are  100 percent committed to the idea that you have, and you believe that none other than YOU can execute it . Be honest to yourself while making the presentation!
