Toastmasters for Pune Entrepreneurs is a Toastmasters (TfPE) Club setup to foster Communication, Presentation skills & Leadership skills among Entrepreneurs. Our club welcomes Entrepreneurs, Small Business owners, Solopreneurs, Aspiring entrepreneurs or anyone with Entrepreneurial attitude.
For the benefit of our Members & Entrepreneurial ecosystem at large, we have started a Workshop series called #Sandbox. The cadence of this workshop is once a month. The essence of #Sandbox to learn a new concept or technique by not just hearing about it but to apply that through an exercise and then take back that learning to their own business, enterprise. The workshop is conducted by a Facilitator who is an expert in that area.
Business Model Canvas (BMC) is a strategic management and lean startup template for developing new or documenting existing business models. It is a visual chart with elements describing a firm’s or product’s value proposition, infrastructure, customers, and finances. The Business Model Canvas was initially proposed by Alexander Osterwalder.

About the session:
Introductory session about Toastmasters wherein TiE Charter member, Mr. Ajay Hiraskar will be giving details about the “Toastmasters for Startup Entrepreneurs and their teams”.
Toastmasters International is a global non-profit organisation whose sole purpose is to help individuals develop their leadership & communication. The organization was set-up in 1924 and now operates in 143 countries & 16,800+ clubs thru voluntary leaders who work on a pro-bono basis.
Entrepreneurs are normally technologically savvy & driven by a purpose, but often cannot articulate their thoughts in an effective way. This dampens their ability to pitch to customers, investors, partners & potential employees. This was the reason for combining the needs of entrepreneurs with the program created by Toastmasters by formation of a Toastmasters club which is specially focused on helping startup founders.
