How Strategic Marketing can turn cash starved companies into cash rich entities ?

Overview

We are pleased to invite you to the 83rd session of NASSCOM Product Forum.

While many of us may want to be entrepreneurial at heart, our approach to institution building suffers from 'Big company thinking' that many of the small businesses cannot afford. When startups and small business owners shun the luxury of deep pockets, market hype and patient investors, they anchor their business models on fundamentals that are more sustainable.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed. The world market place is more volatile than ever before. More than ever before, a strategy linked and reality bound business model is the need of the hour. Strategy has to be operational, reality bound and forward focused.

The session highlights the strategic considerations an India based First Generation Entrepreneurs / Business Owner needs to bear in mind.

Look forward to seeing you there !
