Ankur and Hemanth being part of Landmark Forum program have taken up a project for social cause. They are making a movie on Entrepreneurs in various fields who gave up their high paying job to do something on their own. The movie also features people pursuing off beat careers.
Usually the entrepreneurs have similar patterns on the way to success. Their success stories will have the components such as Eureka moment, Role Model, Godfather, Breakthrough moment, Testing times etc.
The intention of the movie is these identify these patterns in life of Entrepreneurs. The list of entrepreneurs includes CEO technology starts ups such as Redbus.in, TringMe, Lifeblob, Hungry bangalore etc. Other than these Hemanth/Ankur have interviewed a Theatre Aritist(Pawan Kumar), a Interior designer(Mamta).
Here is a trailer of the movie.
The movie will showcased in various tech get-togethers such as Mobile Monday, TiE, Barcamp etc. The majority of screening will happen in Engineering Colleges all over India, so that it will be an inspiration to the students who want to be entrepreneurs in future.
There is a dedicated blog for this project. Please find more details there.
I was part of assisting team for one of the interviews. It was with CEO of Redbus.in - Phanindra Sama. It was an amazing interview and I got to know so much about one of successful start-ups in recent times. More details about the interview in a seperate post.
