The resource person started the session by explaining the basic difference between a traditional or conventional business and a start- up. He talked about the importance of perspective and out-of-the box thinking in a start-up culture.
The class addressed various issues like patenting, why some start-ups fail, the different stages involved in a product development process, etc. The class was interactive and the speaker gave some puzzles and activities to make the session more interesting. The class was thought provoking as it would help the teachers to guide the students on to a start-up culture.
