Entrepreneurship, startups and the new-age founder trend which started to boom in the last decade is only getting more fierce in the modern world. Students, middle aged men and women rushing to solve various problems faced by society are constantly increasing everyday, trying to challenge the status quo.
Amidst this rush, the way to startup and succeed is getting lost and the success rate is constantly going low among aspiring entrepreneurs, and the general perception of the world of entrepreneurship gets tainted by irrelevant perspectives.
To solve this problem of providing the specific inspiration and tools to the general public to startup and succeed, ‘Cookie Jar’ has taken the reigns to make people prosper in the field of entrepreneurship. Ground Zero, a summit organized by Cookie jar focuses on getting the best of the nation’s entrepreneurs to gather at one destination and will also get them to talk about their entrepreneurial journey. The absolute beginning of their startup journey, their highs and lows, the people who didn’t believe in them, the people who did believe in them, the way they created a following, the way they created something valuable, everything that they had to sacrifice to get where they are right now.
Investors and founders of other significant organisations would also be involved in the summit as their insights which are a result of their experience adds to the whole mix.
To head this, 5 individuals who have been working with startups for a long time now have taken responsibility to run Cookie Jar, the parental company that owns Ground Zero. Having known what it truly takes to start a startup and also run it well, Cookie Jar was born.
Goutam Venkatesh – a business development manager at Townista, Abhijith Jagannath – a global financial analyst at Dentsu Aegis Network, Vyshak Iyengar, Amar and Ashwin Kumar – the three of them who are engineering undergrads and avidly involved with startups, have all teamed up to found Cookie jar and all the associated summits and products that go under the parental company; one of which is Ground Zero.
The most recent summit is on the 25th of March in Bangalore which features some of the best entrepreneurs and investors in the country – Anto Philip, the co-founder of the Under 25 Club, Sharath Gayakwad – a successful paralympic swimmer and the founder of a sports analytics and e-commerce company called Gamatics, and Nagaraja Prakasham – an incredible angel investor who also founded the IAN Impact, which is a network for angel investors.
