ABOUT Board of Entrepreneurs

Board of Entrepreneurs, is an initiative of Startup Xperts that is born with a mission to produce and develop successful entrepreneurs.  We work towards achieving this mission through startup boot camp for startup founders and aspiring entrepreneurs, and help them build successful and sustainable ventures.

Board of Entrepreneurs provides you an opportunity to rapidly advance your entrepreneurial and business skills, the lack of it is one of the prime reasons for a startup’s failure.

We all know startups are disruptive, they create new markets, shake established/traditional enterprises, get obscene valuations, etc.

  • But then, do you know that 9 out of 10 startups fail to make the cut?
  • And those startups that validate their MVP (minimum viable product), only 10% of them are successfully able to execute?

We passionately believe that ‘learn by doing’ is the best way to increase your entrepreneurial success quotient.  This boot camp provides immense value to every participant and stakeholder, with all the necessary ammunition to build a scalable and sustainable business.


  • Are you at an ‘idea stage’ and wondering how to build a high growth enterprise? or
  • Startup founder gone past the idea stage, built prototype, and pitching to investors? or
  • Bootstrapped or raised initial seed money, and would like solidify your business model, marketing approach, building unique value proposition to scale up your business? or
  • A student/aspiring entrepreneur, where you wish to bridge the gap with you and the industry, in a quick period of time through an intense hands-on approach?

Then Board of Entrepreneurs startup boot camp will prove to be the best you would have come across.


If you aspire to become a successful entrepreneur, you will need to do the right things. Attending the boot camp is one step closer to your success. You will not just know what all do, but more importantly how to do and also how not to do too!
The best way of learning is ‘Learn by Doing’; so you will work on simulated problems, challenges, dive into case studies, presentations, which can help you become an expert in just flat 3 days!
After the 3-day boot camp, you will

  • Know how to build a scalable and investable business
  • Build a solid base for your idea, right from validation to value proposition
  • Become a smart entrepreneur, increasing your chances of success, quite significantly
  • On the Rocket Pitch Day, be able to utilize our platform to showcase your idea/product/solution to potential investors
  • Be able to confidently pitch to investors (as you now know the investors’ mindset)
  • Develop your network; build connections; get inspired; create interesting partnerships; and even identify co-founders to build your team
  • Get your course completion certificate

You will be a confident entrepreneur ready to soar to higher levels, this point forward. Period!


Why did we come up with Board of Entrepreneurs initiative?

With so many good ideas that are failing to make an impact, we realized that most of the startup founders and aspiring entrepreneurs lacked business skills, the knowledge to build their business that is scalable, and the expertise to do the right things. Today, unfortunately, the word ‘boot camp’ is being used very loosely for even regular presentations, knowledge sharing sessions, etc. These do not provide you with the completeness in learning and understanding the full business circle. We felt that learning by doing will be the best way to build successful businesses and launched this unique, one of its kind program, the Startup Boot Camp by Board of Entrepreneurs.

Our ecosystem has never been so very exciting and vibrant when it comes to startups. With the Government’s initiative of ‘Digital India’ and ‘Make in India’ gaining momentum, the trend is supposed to be northwards for many years to come. Board of Entrepreneurs’ team is passionate and committed in making startup founder’s dream to build a successful business, a reality.

We do not promise to raise funds for you.  But shortlisted startups have the opportunity to pitch to potential investors on a ‘Rocket Pitch Day’. It is a platform that brings together startups and investors on that pitch day.  It will be left to investors’ choice on who and whether they wish to fund any ideas/startups.  Our objective is not fund raising but to ensure that your startup is rooted strong on fundamentals.

There may be multiple coaches for the boot camps.  They are successful business leaders, seasoned entrepreneurs, launched and run their own businesses, and have been there done that before.  Some of the profiles are captured in the team page as well.

Anyone who is passionate to give shape to their idea, or a startup who aspires to build a scalable model that can impact the society, irrespective of age, can attend.  We however recommend participants to be at least 18 years of age, for understanding the concepts and the overall program.

The session usually starts at 9.30 am and runs till 5 pm.  Be prepared for longer days, rigorous sessions, if you are passionate to continue and having healthy discussions.

Yes, if the numbers are under 5, then you can be in one group.  You also have the choice to split your group if you wish to pick some brains from other teams as well.

Nothing, we will be providing the necessary pens, pencils, stationery, and other items required for you to perform during the simulation activities.  You can bring your laptop at your own risk.

We recommend business casuals considering that this will be a professional boot camp.  You will be also meeting with other startup founders and aspiring co-founders as well.  So you can dress up well accordingly.

We provide coffee/tea and snacks at scheduled intervals and also vegetarian lunch.  There will be high tea in the evening.
