The idea was very simple. 11 SMEs from various industries. 20 minutes to explain their business, growth, financials and expansion plans. No Q&A session.
Audience: Interested investors & Me
Location: National Stock Exchange, BKC
Off late, I've started venturing into a lot of new things. One of them includes visiting places/sessions/seminars/events to see what new is out there (even if that means I have to go alone). About a week ago, my father noticed an SME (small to medium enterprises) stars meet event opening on the Alpha Ideas blog page. Now I work Monday to Friday, so sacrificing my Saturday morning sleep, I must admit, wasn't something I was looking forward to.
The entire session was worth it. To give you a brief outline of what the event flow was like:
- 8:55 am - 9:00 am - Opening Remarks
- 9:00 am - 10:40 am - Company Presentations
- 10:40 am - 11:10 am - Tea/Coffee Break & Networking
- 11:10 am - 1:00 pm - Company Presentations
- 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm - Lunch & Networking
Now I've sat through and given a lot of presentations (a BMS course demand). For those of you who have not attended more than three presentations at a stretch, let me tell you that you start to lose your patience by the first half of the second one. But this wasn't the case here. Since every company came from a different industry and each being different in its own right, the whole session became extremely interesting to attend.
Below mentioned are the companies who presented along with links to their official websites.
