The #1 Community for World-Class Entrepreneurs Looking to 10x their Growth?
Why we Started 10 Crore Club
As part of our investment platform Lionslair, we met about 10 startups a day. There were good ideas and not so great ideas, but the common theme among all the startup was the gaps and the obvious grey areas that the founders couldn’t look at themselves. That’s when we realized the scale of the problem. When getting started the founders are excited about the opportunity and then the cash crush and the revenue challenges come up. Then they start looking for a quick fix solution, looking for one big client or seek investment from investors ; Not realizing that their business is not ready for investment. The gap between the potential of the business and the reality is too wide and this makes the startup fall into the trap of chasing the fast-growing businesses. This leads to the over-investment in marketing, sales and growth and less time to focus on the product development. This is the reason why so many startups fail. Also, in the journey entrepreneurs stopped collaborating and connecting with fellow entrepreneurs. Everyone knew the importance of collaboration, but there was not a single platform that could enable collaboration among entrepreneurs.
We started 10 Crore Club with these clear objectives :

How we started and the growth story
We started 10croreclub with the first meeting on July 20, 2019, Saturday at 5 PM. We had actually conceptualized on Wednesday July 17, 2019 at 9 PM. As you can imagine it was not much time for creating a website, the logo and have an elaborate launch program. We decided to send out invites for entrepreneurs through WhatsApp but we had to make a logo at first. A simple template on Canva helped us to create a powerful logo, which captured the essence of the mastermind process and was also attractive at the same time. That logo has since remained our primary logo even today. Come Saturday at 4:30 PM me and our then cofounder, Sovan Panda, were waiting for the start of the mastermind. It was raining then, instead of 20 confirmed attendees, only about 12 turned up. We were a little disappointed that we didnt get 100% attendance, but later we learnt about statistics about attendance in public events, the average rate being 25%, so we were doing great. Then at about 5:15 PM we started the presentations, people were inspired and were curious to get started. We formed groups of 5 each and there were two groups. The 10Croreclub Mastermind was officially underway. Then we realized, how engaged and involved the entrepreneurs were, we then understood the power of the whole process. We saw bigger things then for 10croreclub at that point. There were powerful breakthroughs, ideas exchanged, connects exchanged. Our little experiment was taking an important turn, people wanted to continue the process, they wanted to meet more often. We had to sell, we had to create an offer. We discussed what could be the ideal scenario and what could we sell. Ideally there must be a regular meeting week on week and there must be an exposure with those who have been there and done that. We called it Weekly meetings and Mega Meetups, on the spot, and we sold our membership.
We had our first member at 10croreclub. Looking back, if not for that first sale and the confidence we got from that first sale and the action we took on an idea, we would not have been who we are today.
Since the first Weekly meetings, we have successfully conducted over 50 such public gatherings, when we started we had zero experience in running events but here we were with rolling out events like pros. During this time, we received tremendous support from the wider startup ecosystem, running the mastermind events is one part but finding the right meeting space was another part. We were greatly supported by many coworking spaces and special mention goes to WeWork for being a great host for most of our events. Any concept can blossom in the right context, WeWork provided that right environment for Mastermind to become success and blossom.

Where we are, where we want to go
March 6, 2020 was our last Offline Mega meetup with Sampad Swain of Instamojo. We had over 120 participants inspite of fear of Covid still in the air. Then the Lockdown was a big blow to our expansion and growth plans. After the lockdown, we were in a new untested territory.
We thought it would be best for us to slow down and wait for normalcy to return. On April 1, 2020, we were back on the road with an Online Meetup that was live streamed on Facebook, YouTube. This was the first time we had an online meetup. Although, our core team was preparing internally for an online mastermind since December 2019, we were not ready yet. Our OKR platform Objectivedone was not yet ready for a launch. We tested and tried several models to connect with our members across India. The value delivery was not effective.
10croreclub 2.0 launched in January 2022 with total revamp of our processes with online first as our priority. We figured, the best way forward with our online strategy is to bring together startups/founders from the same niche. We found this strategy working wonders for the ecosystem. Thats when we launched niche mastermind for founders from several niches such as F&B, Healthcare, Ecomm among many others. Founders interact on our online platform, network, build collaborations, get mentored by top founders in that Niche. Our Megameetups are now in the Metaverse. Attend one of our upcoming Megameetups to experience this virtual magic.
Mastermind will be the need in this new normal. Gone are those days when entrepreneurs could simply network and hope to grow their business. Collaboration, learning and mastermind are going to be need of the future. We see 10croreclub to be an important partner in enabling entrepreneurs in India achieve their goals, faster!

I have started these businesses from lessons learn from pain and failures of my previous startup Eyeeplus, which was into manufacturing smart watches for the elderly. The reason for stall was the technology was not supportive of the intended use. This made me realise the need for a community of support system and top quality mentoring for startups and hence the new journey.
Prior to taking a plunge in startup world, I have worked in Germany, France and India as a Aerospace Designer for Airbus, majorly in A380 program.

Business Networking and referral exchange isn’t the primary purpose of our organization, even though it happens by default among members. We are a business growth community that helps members grow their businesses by keeping track of their progress on our OKR platform Objectivedone.
Business Acceleration is the DNA is of this mastermind group. Unlike in a typical business accelerator, the common goal of every member is to get to that magic mark of 10crore. The discussions are more specific and members help each other get there together faster. So we are a business accelerator in a turbo mode.
Masterminds have existed since the longest times ever known. Mastermind groups are formed in a wide variety of ways. It can be done with friends, family, and colleagues. The main purpose of a mastermind group is to have an individual or individuals share knowledge and ideas. Mastermind is one of the most underutilized concepts in entrepreneurship. Andrew Carnegie, once the richest person alive, attributed his success to mastermind he formed with his fellow entrepreneurs. If you are starting a business or launching a product, a mastermind group can help you find out what other entrepreneurs are doing and how they have been successful.
