Building Curated Startup Community for India #StartupIndia

Hi! I am Shubham Kumar, A final year Student from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. I am enrolled in the dual degree program (B.tech+ M.tech) in the department of Mining Engineering.  In the past, I have worked with many startups including UBER.

I am admin and community manager for StartupTalky, world's largest community on Facebook for entrepreneurs. We do all sorts of discussion related to startups, post and generate leads and support each other in every possible way.  Also, we are the most active and spam free group as you can see we have blocked more than 7000 people who don't follow our group rules. You can join the group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/startuptalkygroup/

We have a total following of more than 160K  people across all our social media channel.

Meanwhile, I also launched startuptalky.com a media platform for startups where I publish articles related to entrepreneurship and founders' interview.  

So I can say for the past few years, I have looked and observed the Indian startup ecosystem very closely. Indian Startup ecosystem is growing and maturing. however, there are still millions of people who are about to join us but don't know how? I believe there is a need of a platform for everything about startups, where a newbie can learn and get all the resources and publicity to execute and run his/ her startup well.


The idea 

First of all, I plan to list all the stakeholders of startup ecosystem on our platform be it startup, founders, investors, incubators, accelerators, mentor, early adopters and others.

Then we will have a listing of jobs and events related to startups only.

Next,  We will have a discussion forum and AMA  portal where I plan to build a community of entrepreneurs to ask and answer questions by a user.
Any suggestion from contributors is always welcome! :) 

What I Plan to do with the money

I am looking forward to raising INR 1,63,000.
About 80,000 of the same will go for the website development.
A part of it will also go to hire a person to monitor group activities and block the spammers.  
And the rest will be used to marketing especially content marketing for entrepreneurs to build a series of articles on starting up from experienced founders.  

Why Crowdfunding
Because the platform will be for forever! For each and every one for every feature!

Your contribution will help upcoming entrepreneurs like to get a direction and support to launch with ease.

For every contribution of more than INR 5000 we will add your name on the "supporter" page of the website for one year and put you startup on the top of the lisitng for one year.

To every donor, I thank you for supporting us. You can always email me at shubham@startuptalky.com for any kind of possible support.
