“Life is like a pencil that will surely run out, but will leave the beautiful writing of life”. I think about this quote every time I finish working on something, wishing it creates something meaningful and gives me something to remember even after 5 years.
My partner, Isha, and I are involved in Nava Udhyamshala, an academic institution based incubation program. This program is running in joint collaboration with the Hetauda School of Management and Social Sciences, Antarprerana, Genese, and Jobs Dynamics.
We are working on our business idea, Makhan Popcorn, which aims to promote healthy eating habits with deliciously flavored popcorns. During this program, we were to present our business status, that too online! That presentation session will be one of those things that I will reflect upon from time to time.
The presentation was done with full enthusiasm. The presentation was done in the presence of all the heads of the collaborating partners. We felt a big relief and accomplished after the presentation when they commended us for giving a wonderful presentation. Mr. Anjani Phuyal from Genese Solutions committed to helping our business grow by helping to provide digital marketing support. Similarly, other partner heads too provided valuable feedback for our business.
My partner and I appreciated the offer and insights from them. Some of the major learning for us to know where we lacked and when we stood strong. It also, helped us analyze the company's performance in the current market and how we could go forward in the future in case of any crisis that may occur.
Without the constant support, encouragement, mentorship, and guidance from the collaborating partners, we would not have been here. From shaping my ideas to presenting my business idea, Antarprerana's team has taught us about business and market on a boarder plane. Antarprerana has helped us understand the importance of planning before venturing into any business idea.
