What are the difficulties the startups effectively experience at this point

Is there a general hesitation for collaboration? If so why?

Aspects to be considered on working together

How can we create an ecosystem that doesn’t discriminate but rather supports



Be it in business or life, we should always be aware that there is always someone who knows something a pinch better. The key is to identify and know how to make the best out of it.


A great initiative by the young and talented start up entrepreneurs at Kakkanad. Few minds have worked together to join the others to share their expertise,novelty and business ventures to make it grow further. As a panelist and consultant to the group it was a refreshing course for me too to interact share my experience and advise them how to make their dreams success. Grip a conclave of this nature will certainly be a  strong grip in the coming years. – Ramesh P.V , Varma Homes
