The Story backs to the meeting of first Start-Up Saturday when four entrepreneurs met across a table to discuss their problems faced during their entrepreneurial journey. The discussion which was of 3hours was extremely based on the experiences each person has faced while starting their businesses. From then ,they started off organizing the Second Start-Up Saturday meeting in different places across Guwahati increasing their numbers from 3 to 10 and then around 40 on the third event. The group got a reinforcing support when thought leaders and industry experts from Assam joined them as guide and mentors. This seems to be on a energy sharing mode of the entrepreneurs who have been participating in their discussion.
