Meet Type: Theme Meet / Interactive Guest Meet

Guest: Mr. Neetibodh Agarwal. He has spent most of his professional years (including Novell & CA) in building software products. Currently he contributes to CoreObjects, wearing multiple hats in Delivery, Business Development & Strategy.

You can learn more about him on LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/in/neetibodh (fairly descriptive)

Proposed Agenda:

1. Challenges to Entrepreneurs in their pursuit of Building Technology Products.

2. Similarities and differences in Building Consumer & Enterprise Products.

Note: Thankfully the above will be discussed using real life cases as the foundation (without getting into specific company names & details).
Key Points:

1. The above topics are more from an entrepreneurs and founding teams perspective and less from a pure technologist perspective.

2. If you are essentially a non techie but leading or a part of technology driven startup then don't miss the meet. Neeti will share insights on what should be your approach in product development; managing internal / partner / external teams. Also, how to avoid most common mistakes.

3. The above topics are so vast and there is so much to learn from Neeti so suggest the following:

a. Please be on time so that we start at sharp 10:30 AM.

b. It is a theme meet, wide topic, so if you are late, I am afraid - we can't be repeating the already discussed content.

c. Yes the idea is to have a very interactive session but please be brief, to the point and don't hijack the thread or go off-tangent. Take such discussions off-line. Neeti will be available post the talk as well.

d. To save on time, club / bundle similar or closely tied questions so that they get addressed in one go.
