Talking about Startup, entrepreneurship at MVP Global Summit 2013

invention

Over the past couple of years I have given lot of talks about BizTalk360 across various countries. It was not a problem at all, you can wake me up in the middle of night and I can start presenting BizTalk360. But for the first time I’m going to talk about my entrepreneurial journey in last 3 years building, marketing and getting customers for BizTalk360. What better stage can you ask for than MVP Global Summit, here in Bellevue, Washington.

MVP summits are always special place for, in the past I mentioned in few blog posts, the idea of BizTalk360 was originated from Feb 2010 MVP summit over a casual talk over coffee with fellow MVP’s from BizTalk world. Then I went ahead, been persistent and released a complete product that’s history.

Being an MVP is all about community engagement and giving back what you have learned. Over the past 8 years or so I’ve done it on technical side mainly on BizTalk Server. Now I thought it will good to to give back what I’ve learned as an entrepreneur. The main thing I wanted to highlight in today’s talk is mainly around "How being an MVP gave me a competitive edge".

Topics Covered

The time is going to be limited, I thought about various topics I can discuss, but finally completed my slides with 4 main topics.

  • How did I built BizTal360?
  • How did I quit my full time Job?
  • How did I market the product?
  • How did my MVP status helped me?

I hope by end of the talk attendees should walk away with 1 or 2 tips, that will help them to  persuade some ideas into products.
