VenturePlus opens for Hari Bansha Acharya!
A 500 strong crowd cheered on as Hari Bansha Acharya, the funnier half of the popular MaHa Jodi entered the hall with a humble Namaste to the audience that already filled the room. After a brief introduction to the event by Samriddhi’s Manish Jha, a video showed some instances from previous editions of the event with entrepreneurs like Bhatbhateni Store’s Min Bahadur Gurung, designer Prabal Gurung and Buddha Airlines’ Birendra Basnet.
VenturePlus had been invited to introduce the magazine to the audience and we talked about how VenturePlus is a platform that young people can and should use to make connections, learn about entrepreneurship, solve problems and even partner with for events. When asked how many in the audience were entrepreneurs, almost the entire room raised their hands without a second’s delay. It was a great opportunity for VP to interact with some of our readers and a curious audience that wanted to know more about us.
The main event kicked off finally with Hari Bansha launching straight into what he does best – his characteristic silly brand of humor. The audience lapped it all up. From talking about how he has no interested in being born to how he had humble beginnings performing with dog sounds to entertain people, he finally got into his entrepreneurial ways of selling cassettes of MaHa’s shows by reserving a tempo and going from shop to shop. The audience also got to buy copies of his best seller biography “Cheena Harayeko Maanchhe” at the event and get it signed by their favorite actor/comedian.
The event ended with a great networking opportunity for all as entrepreneurs mingled, making connections, making a start to their own entrepreneurial journeys.
Tips for newcomers to the event:
- Bring business cards to distribute. Distribute freely.
- Want to introduce your product at the event? Get in touch with the folks at The Samriddhi Foundation.
- If you want to be more visible, get a tshirt made of your company and wear it there, like many were doing there. It’s a smart idea that gets you noticed.
- Don’t be shy; approach people freely, remember, everyone’s there to network and you never know who you might be meeting – a possible co-founder, sponsor, etc.
