Mystical thing called Distribution

In our Extended Enterprise Management course, we talk about Mental Models and how they act as an obstacle to the way we view business. Mental models are essentially how we think certain things work. A lot of things we take as true are often biases because of our culture, the way we have been brought…

In the 2nd year especially, the discussions have moved towards the broader meaning of startups and entrepreneurship. The founding team is of paramount importance for a startup.

Up, up and wait for it….away!

Recently, I had been to the airport to pick up some friends who had gone home for Christmas. A few ensuing conversations reminded me of a time last year when I got in an airport one Friday morning at 11.06 am. At 11.20 am, (within fourteen action packed minutes), I was up, up and away……
