There would be 3 step process which we would be working with you to promote your startups across the globe through our platform.
1. You will need to create your founders profile and give all possible details about your startup and other reference links of blogs, media links etc
2. We will then need a 2 minute pitch video from you to curate a startup community page on our platform where Investors and Collaborators can come and interact with you in the discussion forum available there. And you can keep adding the various information and resources in the page for sharing it with everyone.
3. We will then align a LIVE pitching session with our cross-border Investor Jury Panel who would evaluate and ask questions from you.. this would be further edited and added in your startup community page.
You would also receive a 1 year complimentary access to the video+audio conferencing + screenshare platform to interact with the investors globally and access to all our #BringleTalks and #BringleBlendedMeetups to attend and network globally.

Whether they are early stage, scaling up or even matured startups, we have realized that they would need Mentoring and Investments at each stage. While most of the Entrepreneurs think that Investment is the main reason why they don't grow but what we have realized is that the main reason for their failures is the right guidance at the right time. I have had instances in my own startups where it had to be shut down either because of investment issues or inefficient usage of the funds or even due to the founders conflict. Many a times, they are unable to target the right market or would have execution challenges.
We would like to leverage our cross-border community and investor ecosystem for startups.

We can learn following lessons from this sad episode of CCD :
1 - Debt is death. Don't get trapped in debt., Better to stay small till you find out some alternative.
2 - Respect and comply to strong corporate governance policies before they eat you up
3 - Be careful of whom you are bringing in as investors, some of these are VULTURE capitalists
4 - Create the profit based business model as soon as possible. Not getting it right will be the biggest mistake you will do whether you run a small business or big one.
5 - Have a network of peer Entrepreneurs to share your failures, stress and emotions. Most of 9-5 people don't get it. It is important to reach out to mentors and peers in case of distress.
6 - Have a network of resourceful friends who believe in you and your ideas and I ready to invest when no peer entrepreneur supports you.
7 - Have a close set of group with wonderful family members and friends whom u can rely and lean on, share what's going on inside u without being judged, answers your calls when u need, even if they r not resourceful, they will give u emotional support and all the love and reasons to make this world a wonderful place to live in.
And yes go for a cup of coffee with another human being whenever u find them...know them...share your stories...
