100 day plan

100 Day Plan

Organization CEO’s or Entrepreneurs or Founders typically partner with department or employees to create 30-60-90 days plan or 100 days plan and align selves to organization goals, strategies and measures

Sir Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the term “first 100 days” during a July 24, 1933, radio address.

This approach successful if we have a good mentor, coach and proper training.

Most of the department heads need great push as typically have observed many organization heads not able to articulate their vision/mission or are shy to put forth their real requirements. Assumptions can lead to disastrous results. Example a founder just wanted to scope project at one location, department head understood that it needs to be scaled up at multiple locations and makes huge investments, policies around it and after 30days review, the founder realizes that too much money has been spent on over thinking, over engineering of problem statements.

(It is important a proper handholding takes place, specifically if this needs to be implemented by government of any country)

Mary ”are you crazy”

Soma ”yes… something happens to me the moment I hear such things”

Mary ”ok.. let us not  believe in rumor… wait..”

After 1 day

Soma ”we have stopped all our IT services out in Inda to support USA”

Mary “Have you gone nuts??””

After 2 days

Soma ”what you achieved by doing so… where is the news?”

Mary ”which one?”

Soma ”Why has the US not declared same in paper”

Mary ”why you so concerned?”

Soma ”I paid a marketing company.. to generate this rumor and then hype the same in Indian Market””

Mary ”never go by gossips.. Just a loss of so much money… all of them indeed going to strike?”

Faltered Role Model

Som ”in our life many a time we choose role models and then…”

Mike ‘do not taunt me… agreed I imitated him.. just relied on lavish life style,.. did whatsoever he was doing and went bankrupt’

Som ‘ Look at nations.. in quest of imitation.. unemployment issue is overlooked..”

Mike ”relax.. we are going to get a big boom in employment soon”

Som ”let us stop this topic… I wanted to inform you of Jenny”

Mike has pains in his eyes..

Mike ”she..imitated her mother and broke from me”

Som ”can you stop it.. .do you know what happened to her”

Mike ”not sure.. last she was with me 5 years back”

Som ”she donated her last amount of fund to a village in India”

Mike ”so what… she has this habit of donating right from time I met her.. she distributed my wealth too”

Som ”she plans to work on a concept ”ALTERED ROLE MODEL”

Mike ”what is that…’

Som ”We should not blindly follow history and believe in it.. just at times, look at positive aspects of ecosystem and enjoy…   each person in this world has been destined to have a particular life style by default.. then the alteration process begins.. multiple teacher, friends, family relatives.. and so on .. each influence us.. so her concept is all about influencers in a person”s life and mapping them for you as gift.. the positive vs.. negative energy… did you like the concept?”

Mike ”Why she left me?”

Som ”because you had gone arrogant with your wealth.. you and those yatch parties with ladies”

Som ”who stopped you from meeting”

USA vs Indian Startups

Think anything crazy and you are sure to get invested in US if you pitch well…

Think anything which already exists but not yet introduced in India, you are sure to get invested in India

As we crib of  lack of innovations in India, does it really matter and does it really have investors seeking to invest in millions?

When I researched and kept researching the art and science of entrepreneurship ecosystem in US, Europe, Africa, Australia, Middle East, Netherland, Russia, Mexico and many other countries realized that PROBING means different to different individuals who wish to be entrepreneurs

Few years back, the ones who initiated business in India copied a successful replicable not yet done model in India and Investors too didn’t mind investing in such ventures..

Same side, there were dozens of innovation holding dust in college libraries or in some houses but with no takers and most importantly because of design aesthetics no one wished to invest..

Many design schools too got opened, but creativity again needed PROBING.. international probing of what is needed to succeed so INNOVATION again needed PROBING..

Slowly and surely multiple incubators /accelerators mushroomed in India too but lack of mentors or even still the expectations of entrepreneurs shot up..

None wish to think below Rs20lacs or Rs30lacs and now there is a catch 2 situation.. Should these entrepreneurs be funded or kept informed to search jobs and learn more and then become entrepreneurs?

The number of Series A funds have dipped drastically.. So what happens to the 1000 or 10000 startups out to win the global market?

Does currency matter a lot? Absolute yes.. and conditioning mind from being service centric to product centric is more vital for developing (near developed) country like India.

 

Why do best of geeks perform from India perform well in US and get bogged by pressures during work in India?

It is because of consulting mindset, a thought to work on hourly basis.. and even if product investments happen, unless the best from best of institutes not as founder member, it is a risk..

As i experiment with individuals from all walks of society, the biggest challenge is motivating all to think / attempt to become entrepreneur and will they get investments? Not sure..  but what they may get is a market reach and traction to sustain themselves..

Finally what is so special about US startups?

Innovation.. and ability to identify right pain points.

Is there a clutter of no show investments in US too?

Obviously yes.. as to how many investors would wish to invest in already cluttered market and purely focus only on IT/ECOMMERCE based solutions..

There are surely many investors in India who also wish to invest in innovations in India but again a fear of non show in Series A may be detrimental for creativity, innovations in India.

My focus on accelerator program is guiding the individuals to make strong technical scalable product or service.
