Fringe & Geekery

Session type

Technical level


This session will allow participants to start with a wild idea or a passion and work in groups to create a clear and executable business plan by the end of their workshop. It will be a creative process systematically driven by the speaker and will help them work on that long lost idea or passion


The session will be conducted in groups wherein each individual will share their idea or dream with others and try to convince the group for picking their idea for further work. Once each group selects an idea, the moderator will guide the discussion through insights and guide them through essential elements of a business plan like market size, customers, competition, etc. Finally each group needs to present their ideas to the rest of the audience.


All you need is an idea, dream, or passion which you would want to convert into reality at some point in your life.
