Most of the youngsters at the meeting have ideas for venturing as start-ups and are eager to become entrepreneurs. The ideas mostly were based on educational mobile phone apps. These youngsters needed help to translate their ideas into business.

A group of such aspiring youngsters came together to form a community to help one another and others to become successful entrepreneurs. The meeting held in a trendy coffee shop was the initiative of Entrepreneurs Mingle (EM), a website that provides start-ups and budding entrepreneurs free space to project themselves.

A start-up company is a temporary firm designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model. These companies that are usually newly created are in a developmental phase. The term became popular during the dotcom bubble when a great number of start-ups were founded.

EM head-start Network Lead Chaitanya and his associates Dinesh and Bharat helped the group of youngsters navigate to set goals for the group. The star of the meeting was Sachin, who will soon launch the beta version of an educational app, which provides preparation material and mock tests for GRE. The youngsters took a couple of decisions as a group.

They would soon appoint campus ambassadors and have a Start-up Saturday meeting, once a month
