Creating a Startup Revolution..

What is Entrepreneurship?

What is Entrepreneurship?

Source: https://bradleysjohns.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/entrepreneur.jpg

I just completed watching the first 4 episodes of TVF Pitchers, a new Indian show which talks about the journey of 4 guys who leave their cushy jobs to dream of starting their own company. In a country like India, there are hundreds of individuals who start their own companies every single day. But in comparison, the success stories are miniscule in number.

From lack of funding to a poorly developed idea; from inability to hire the right set of people to lack of differentiation among the competitors in the market, there are a number of reasons behind every failure. But one of the most fundamental ones is the ease with which wannabe entrepreneurs give up after being rejected a couple of times.

As is always the case in life, not giving up is the mantra one needs to follow to avoid being JUST another entity creating a startup revolution. It’s not always about doing different things but instead doing the same things differently could be revolutionary as well.

    I just started listening to the podcast Start Up, which feels in line with this.

      That’s awesome Mel. It’s all about the will to do something different and the will to stay put at it.

  2. Interesting, Aseem. I started a training company in 2003 with a partner. I left in 2007, because I had to move cities post-marriage. I can tell you that the starting years were tough and it was easy to want to throw in the towel. Today, my ex-partner (also my friend) is reaping the benefits of those difficult years and I’m happy to see that it was well worth our effort. Even if an idea is good, one must have the will to follow through.

      True Corinne :). It’s all about the dedication and the perseverance of individuals that pays off more often than not. It may take several years. But if we stay at it, we are bound to be successful in one thing or the other. It’s great to now that your friends is reaping the benefits of those early years of hardwork :).

  3. Well said! The persistence makes all the difference. It is about trying and willingness to give it another chance. Good one Aseem.

      There are so many who fall by the wayside. But only those who have the dedication and courage to go on are the ones who succeed in the end. And moreover, there are many who fail once but again rise up and above the rest like the phoenix.
