We also welcomed 80-plus entrepreneurs from across programmes at NSRCEL for a two-day bootcamp on 19 and 20 December 2022 at IIMB. With a focus on the themes of funding and venture revenue, the entrepreneurs got to attend nine power-packed sessions delivered by industry professionals and NSRCEL alumni, along with product demos and one-on-one conversations between entrepreneurs and industry experts.  

The bootcamp aimed at enabling founders to think on their feet and seamlessly navigate through the nuances of strategic positioning, revenue measurement, sales team hiring, building resilience, best funding practices, and much more.
