Its scary how many times the term "population control" has come up over the last few weeks whenever the discussion about GDP comes up. 👇

This is a dangerous line of thinking. We are at 1.3bn? Whats your plan to get to 500mn? Id bet there are no correct answers. So stop thinking that way and see how we can work with what we have. Educate girl children and that will fix itself.

There are some amazing folks in Chennai who have been at it. The demand from motorists are high that any or all roadspace gets prioritised. But you can see progress being made (like in the video)

Discount is better than, "oh we are family now. You wont charge family would you?' *And you'd also get a random role to play in the wedding*

Will they still clear the bill or is this now under family discount?

Service providers think if they reach out to an accelerator or Investor, they will forward your pitch to their portfolio companies. They dont. 1. Anything that is an expense is seldom recommended by stakeholders. 2. If anything the value expected from us is to reduce/save $$$.

I guess thats why they bought it. But i can imagine that all the influencers who have built a network and following on IG is having a coconut in their throats.

Why is the Facebook messenger icon turning red? Are they merging instagram into it?

Or take that wee bit of extra time and precaution early on. Remember prevention is better than cure, and you dont want things to strain early on in the relationship that youll have to mend over time.

You proceed at your own peril then. People do hold a grudge (even if they don't always voice it). It is better to be effective than fast.

The fastest way to lose someone's interest and goodwill is to spell the name of someone wrong. Equally applies when you are trying to partner with a company and you spell the company name wrong.

4. Just remember that its relationships first, transactions next. Id grab a cup of coffee with those who are looking at deals just to get a perspective - they see volume and have seen far more iterations. Thats a knowledge reserve you dont want to miss. <eom>

3. Investors are super accessible. Even the managing partners of the top funds are on twitter, keep a blog and are all a degree away on linkedin. Id seriously worry abt your sales skill if you find this intimidating.

2. The process of meeting 20-30 investors and pitching will give you valuable insights for the rounds to follow. Youll learn how to pitch, abstract info, negotiate and to identify investors you really really want to work with.

I worry when entrepreneurs are looking for a platform to help them raise their seed round. 1. Investors dont love IBs. Investment bankers are put in a tough spot too - where the fees come from the startups, but it is the investors that provide long term value.
