Business plan 2.0

December 11, 2006

IT leadership and strategies, this course was taken up by our Dean Dr. Vijay Sethi. In one line he is walking and talking encylclopedia. Hats off to his knowledge. In this course he introduced some of the concepts and buzz words which people in technology business love to talk about. He covered concepts like web2.0, long tail effect, network effects,disruptive technologies etc. I came across these words earlier too, however i wasn’t able to appriciate the depth. This course made me wise enough to appriciate the subtle things like these are not the mere buzz words but really the frameworks used in building new e businesses. If google adwords or amazon uses the concept of long tail effect; Orkut, skype and other social networking sites are betting on network effects. Kudos to Sethi sir who always make things look so simple whether it is evolution of airline ticketing system from agents to orbitz. Or the evolution of music industry from label era to the era of apple ipod where music device defines the rules of the game and finally he left us thinking about how things would change with the launch of Microsoft Zune. Talk of music industry and copyrights, patents issues are bound to come up. Alas we could not find out who killed our beloved newspaper.

Talk entrepreneurship, Business plans and you have touched the right chord. He can passionately talk for hours on these topics !! Ideas runs in his thoughts. So he called upon his students from Nanyang Business School to present a business plan which was selected among the top seven Bplans in a competition at IIM A. It was really stimulating listening to their simple- yet- effective idea. Then finally he made us work hard and come up with an e business plan in just two days!! that was real challenge and we again pulled up our socks and sameer seeded an idea which we brain stormed and builded upon this novel idea of connecting people online at experience level, sharing videos of their college events and theatre groups, dramatics and other events which you love to talk about.

Before you move ahead i would like you to watch this video, which was also the part of our presentation:

all credit for this video goes to Sameer. Who slogged real hard in fine tuning it for hours!!

we call this forum as ( virtual place to relive your old memories. Check out presentation on

Finally again …. here is our slate under various stages of evolution of our plan:

This plan is again in its initial format which requires lots of refining and upgrading ….looking forward for comments to improvise!!
