The purpose of the club ...
- a. Intellectual chit-chat with quality minds, people engaging with one another may not have specific projects to talk on, or need any service / advice; new entrants bring their domain knowledge / skills to this part of the club activity - quality chit-chat; excited to learn about other industries and share his/her knowledge / achievements. Up-side: ongoing engagement may spark some business opportunity for an entrepreneur. Down-side: members may feel that they are being called upon too often for discussions that have no value-add ... low warmth and openness may kill some motivation.
- b. A member joins because he has an entreprenerial idea / work-in-progress and clearly sees the existing resources of the club can be leveraged for his/her progress.
- c. A member joins for being able to provide assistance / advice as and when the opp comes and in the process be rewarded in due course.
General comment - no compulsion to meet and actively contribute in some way may just render the group to a group of friends, passively waiting for someone else to take the lead and the responsibility to make things work. There is a need for a hook, an objective to motivate people to work towards ... I find that part missing. The hook could just be coming from an quality entertainment perspective. IIM-B has started a monthly get together with absolutely no agenda. Come-in, pay for your drink and chit-chat. 35-45 people attend every month. Those IIMB alumni members who do not stay in Blore join in as well, if they are traveling and in town.
