Recently, The Kochi Post wrote about how and why startups shut down prematurely in Kerala and what can be done to help sustain them. The Startup League, an organisation is all about startups, had it’s very first meeting on Thursday in the city. The event that took place at Park Residency, Kakkanad, saw nearly 40 entrepreneurs from all parts of the State come together. Heralded by Manoj Chandran, founder of the organization, and Harish Nair, co-founder, the meet saw industry leaders address a group of enthusiastic businesspersons.
“The main reason startups close down soon is because there isn’t the right kind of awareness, no handholding. These are mainly freshers who get carried away by the startup hype. A lot of them don’t know how to take their business to the next level,” says Manoj.
He says the league hopes to create a eco-system in which startups that are trying to find their ground can be nurtured and sustained.
