    Thumbs up Embedded Startup Club - for more buisness , leads , work and growth

    Ive been thinking about this for a while , there are no actually groups in India which cater to embedded startups / there are no communities either.

    We all are working independently. So here my proposal -

    1. We form a small club where people can only be introduced.
    2. We collaborate some minimal amount and advertize for buisness etc. Say monthly advertizement for products devlopment / Services in EFY / Adsense etc . And we share traffic / leads.
    3. We share projects which we do not intend to do , maybe someone else is free. That way we refer a client.
    4. We collaborate on projects .
    5. Regular communications and problem solving and discussions
    6. Get 2 - 3 highly experienced people on board for guidance and advice.

    Idea is to generate more business , combine resources to yield better results.

    For ex - An avg Embedded project is long , and as a startup we can only take 1 - 2 max / month. But we have the funds to advertize . So say if we do it in EFY and get 6 - 8 good leads , we will have to say no to those 4- 6 people . While if we share we all profit at lower investments. Garunteed we will have competition among ourself , but atleast we have someone to compete with .

    Just an idea ... what do you guys think.

    Sounds good to me. Sign me up...I always in for doing embedded projects. Once we have a grp of ppl maybe we can share our fields of expertise so that it will help us to judge who will fit what kinds of projects.

    First thing to find is a collaborative space like basecamp or maybe a private SNS web application.

    Also if you have any ideas do share .

    Count me in. I'm in Delhi around 30th April. Lets get together and discuss things about this group. The venue I suggest is India Habitat Centre on Lodhi Road, around noon on 29th April which is a Sunday. Is this okay? Btw, how many in/around Delhi?

    Not embedded, but I need some Java plugins written for NIH Image. So I could also be the first client.

    Yep IHC / CP / Central delhi is good.

    I did look up google groups even registered one , but there is no place to have a small wiki like thing . So that we can contribute resources which are yielded from discussions.

    I just hope this embedded club thing happens. Too many such net-ventures follow the path traced by half sine-wave... Up-up-up-peak-down-down-down!

    Vikas, Mohit and I tried to start something. But didnt really work out. I guess due to distance and other unknown factors. But worth a shot
