We Mead Business – a panel discussion about successful start-ups at Todi Mill Social


About the Panel Discussion:-

START-UPS, if you belong to the millennial generation, chances are that you’ve heard this word at least 5.6 million times if not more! Every second day we hear the news of a start-up coming up
while there’s another one that’s given up. One thing common about these start-ups although is the fact that they’re creating a product, service or have an idea that definitely aims at making your
life easier and better; and they’re all looking at an opportunity to showcase their products or services out there with people who share their passion.

This is where TiE Mumbai – an organization that has been at the forefront of promoting the entrepreneurial and start-up ecosystem globally has joined hands with
Moonshine Meadery & Work From Social

We Mead Business aims at getting these startups together under a roof where they can meet like-minded people and talk about what their company stands for while enjoying a pint of Moonshine Meadery’s signature meads. If you’re
thinking, this is going to be yet another start-up meet with boring Powerpoint presentations, we’d like to destroy that notion right here.

Think, fun panel discussions, displaying your product and its story in the form of a movie or skit, industry experts coming and sharing their knowledge, start-ups networking with each other and creating a referral chain, and more! Because in the end, we really mead business and nothing else.
