In India, the culture is – if you fail for the first time, no one is going to let you explore and hence, entrepreneurs are to ensure that at the corporate level and also at the entrepreneur level, the incentives are right. We need to enable people to take risk and also control risks. There are few companies, especially finance companies, that are creating start-ups and the only incentives they provide is that they let you learn very quickly. They want you to come up with something very quickly, within five months or so, try it out, spend around $100,000. See the results and then you abandon or you refine. Those are the kind of things we need to consider. The key is to get balance with different components.
Firstly, the regulations need to improve and that is something that can’t change radically. You don’t need to be like the US but you need to ensure that the minimum is there. Secondly, at the educational level, things need to change, especially the way entrepreneurship is taught. Apart from the intellectual side, the college and the universities need to work on the skill set and also it needs to be very experiential.
innovations have the potential to make India a collaborative society, and emphasized on translating innovation to entrepreneurship. Starting a business is an achievement for an individual but facing the hardships and maintaining the business is the biggest challenge. These entrepreneurs too had been through several hardships. India had been maintaining a long tradition of entrepreneurship with great entrepreneurs emerging and being successful over more than 100 years who had made waves across the world having started with nothing to making an empire. They have provided motivation and direction for others to achieve goals. Their goals and achievements have demonstrated qualities to be a great teacher and the best leader that inspire and motivate us. The difference between a startup and a highly successful business is briefly a few years, vision, timing, loads of hard work, and yes, a pinch of luck. Majority of successful businesses, now, were at one time a startup. Be it the famous Starbucks or Walmart to our very own Ola cabs or OYO rooms, they were once a mom and pop joints working hard to reach success. Even Facebook and Google had incepted as a startup.
For an entrepreneur, running a successful and profitable company is a remarkable experience that takes time, dedication, hard work, and sacrifice. One of the major struggles is that many entrepreneurs are so determined about gaining new customers that they fail to recognize the need to retain their old customers. A true entrepreneur doesn’t get immobilized by the negative forces. It is usual for any startup to face these problems but what actually differentiates the successful ones is how effectively they can face the challenges. He who takes the responsibility of the company and learns from the challenges is a Successful Entrepreneur.
