Traditionally, an entrepreneur has been defined as “a person who starts, organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk“. “Rather than working as an employee, an entrepreneur runs a small business and assumes all the risk and reward of a given business venture, idea, or good or service offered for sale. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes.”Entrepreneurs tend to be good at perceiving new business opportunities and they often exhibit positive biases in their perception and a pro-risk-taking attitude that makes them more likely to exploit the opportunity.
Yeah the above para is from Wikipedia. And I too agree from this and I would like to share my views on entrepreneurship. I think in coming days particularly in India there will not be workers but yeah entrepreneurs. And we will not call a plumber or a technician rather we will call GoMistri or so. I will show some statistics also to prove my argument.
I am not blaming the previous govt but our prime minister honorable Narendra Modi ji has really done an amazing task. To be honest I wanted to have my own startup but I feared whether my parents will support or not but because of the steps taken by the govt on entrepreneurship or startups now I proudly say that I want to be an entrepreneur, an incubator.
I imagine that there will only be startups not workers as all will be skilled in my imaginary India. It will be a time where he will be the first, not second Eisenstein or so.
The Smart India Hackathon
And the Smart India Hackathon is such a step of transforming India. Last year to be precise few months ago I too tried yup I was working on my Idea about a startup but failed because I could not do anything except thinking and working on idea. Meanwhile I learned many things like it is not an idea only which is needed for a startup but what matters is how you execute it. Because the same idea may have strike hundreds before and what makes a difference is who is able to execute it precisely. And I think these are actually successful in life.
Few things to remember while starting a startup
I have realized that many startups don’t have ground experience i.e. how to do a task. Actually this is my personal experience that some startups just spend money like water. Before investing money they don’t realize that it was not needed. I would suggest that please do some proper google because I know there are many startups who help startups free of cost. Like if a startup wants to have message facility in the website of the startup I would suggest don’t just go and buy message plans before proper googling because some startups like MSG91 help startups by providing free facility to startups. So like wise there are many companies or tech giants who help startups and I am going to share some few details which are definitely going to help you.
What inspires ma a lot is that last year in E-Summit NIT Raipur, Ms. Aditi Chourasia mam was there in my college as a speaker. She is co-founder of Engineerbabu. She said that in forth year of your college you and your friends will be in placement room. But the only difference will be that you will be there as a job giver not job seeker.
