The startup ecosystem = haathi ke daant. #WhatTheGoat

Ever wondered why Snapdeal and Flipkart are talking merger? Why Flipkart acquired Ebay India? Why mobikwik and freecharge are exploring merger? Why few (high performing) founders were asked to leave ?
How are founding teams decided? Who decides them? Who influences such decisions? How do you give equity to your mentors and partners?
Do investors really want founders who are ‘solving the problem’ OR are ‘pretending to solve the problem’?
Well, there ain’t a lot of logic here (no matter how much you’d like to believe in). These decisions are driven by ‘something else’ (IIT/PR-friendly founder etc etc) and that something else is what you will find in the second episode of WhatTheGoat.

If you are running a startup / have done one / plan to do one – this is a must watch. It’s the right mix of satire, humor and importantly, the message we want to send across.
Supported by NestAway, WhattheGoat is a NextBigWhat original, directed by Hera Pheri Films and is being produced along with BK Birla.
