However, a group of IT start-up/SME entrepreneurs who undertook regular discussions on issues and challlanges faced in their business development observed that overall entrepreneurial eco-system is harsh for first generation technology entrepreneurs and suggested that some of the gaps like:
(i) Lack of a nodal point for entreprenmeurs to be visibile to different stakeholders in general and particularily to those who are interested in reaching out to them for various purposes.
(ii) Lack of an value added information repository on various services and assistances available to them from public institutions and/or private sources at one place .
(iii) Lack of information on the fellow entrepreneurs in Delhi-NCR and ability to reach out to them in a regular, informal manne for experience,resource and leads sharing.
(iv) Lack of information on the fellow stakeholders based in Delhi-NCR like academic and research institutions, incubators,government departments and ability to reach out to them on various issues.
(iv) lack of a mechanism to collect the challanges looking for IT solutions, channel the desire of various stakeholders to be associated with entrepreneurs etc
can be addressed to some extent by an online portal nitee.org.
