Harris ‘They have been on proof of concepts for over 10 weeks and then may be 3 weeks for fine tuning their business model’
RatnaRatna “Do you feel business models really can be too different from so many others.. Is it not borrowed one?”
The entrepreneurs are dumb struck. They realize how they were searching furiously competitor models, may be in some country business models and so on
RatnaRatna ‘Funds never come easily.. Realize each money is hard earned.. Who is willing to among you guys .. willing to market the products”
