Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at the SP Jain Center of Management in Dubai Technology Week to a group of MBA students with technology backgrounds.  I was very impressed with the level of students at this school; we’re actually working with groups of students from there this year on several research projects.  I greatly enjoyed the session and the over 1 hour of Q&A afterwards, great to see so many questions and the passion i the room.

I’ve posted the slides below, the session was put together as a mashup of existing decks from Rashmi Sinha (SlideShare) and a cleaned up version of a deck from Dave McClure, with inspiration from

Startup Talk


Hopefully will see some interesting startups emerge from this group, I think they have a a great head start on most people as they have IT backgrounds to give them the technical edge and are learning the business side of what it takes to be successful
