Are there any core biotech / life science startups in this community ? I don’t mean software companies doing healthcare information systems and servicing the life science industry.

I mean companies that are looking at identifying new drug molecules or building predictive models in biology, DIY Biology etc.

Hello guys,
We are a team of 5 students from IITs ready with our startup idea and required skillset. But after deep analysis of our product we found that it needs some seed funding. Please suggest how to approach for investors for that purpose.
Thanks & Regards.

Hi Guys !
Can you share your thoughts on why manufacturers stop manufacturing certain products although the product has good demand in market ? Is it because they have limited data about demand ? or they assume that an alternative product would do better? My question is related to electronics !

Got two notices from government agencies.

For Buying and Selling of Used Goods, we have to pay VAT and Service Tax both.

Does Olx and Quikr also face similar taxes? Or is this the reason why they are just a listing website? How do you pass on these charges to the customers?

The second notice was related to this group and the other connect group.

The notice states that professional and business transactions being carried out on this group. These transactions are not being reported to the right authorities.

Q1. Which authorities do we have to report this?
Q2. What do we report?

I am all clueless, so any help will be appreciated.

Till we get further details, I request you to not carry out any business related communication in this group. Thanks for your cooperation.

Hi guys. Some advice needed on equity for acceleration. An accelerator is asking us for x% common stock equity for mentoring (no cash will be infused, just mentoring/ in kind). Now we don’t want to give equity upfront – we’d rather want it to be some form of vesting equity – i.e. the x% equity vests only after the period of mentoring is satisfactorily completed. We did some googling on types of vesting equity in India but all we’ve found are articles on vesting stock for founders. Anyone here who’s been accelerated or who knows this subject could kindly shed some light as to: 1) What kind of deferred/vesting equity transfer options are available in India? 2) Generally in our ecosystem, what do the popular accelerators (like TLabs, Kyron, GSF, etc.) do when there’s no cash infusion involved? (I know that Microsoft Ventures & 10,000 Startups do not take equity). Do they take it upfront or vest it in tranches or over completion? TIA.

I am an alumnus of IITB and currently involved with my data analytics start-up. One of our core activities is developing predictive models.

During the last couple of days, we have developed and tested a couple of predictive models. Out of these, there are two models which have resulted in encouraging results.

The first model predicts the expected returns in the commodities market and the second model predicts the outcome of cricket matches (T20 & ODI). We have tested both these models on historical datasets and the results are encouraging.

I would like to seek some opinion from the start-up community on this forum regarding potential revenue streams that we can generate around these predictive models.

Please share your feedback/suggestions.

How are they doing it? Is google or telecom companies are sharing this data with them? Or are they using a hole in the browser?

It seems to be an interesting though spammy way of collecting contacts of people who are accessing your website. So what is the technology behind this?

Yakin Shah

The one who can be my prospective partner should be sound with:
Social media marketing, drive campaigns and initiatives virally, loves Facebook, linkedin, google+, twitter etc…
One should be very good in English, and has pulse of business in his blood or veins.

If you are one, please ping me.
