A couple of weeks ago I attended the Lean Startup Machine Workshop in San Francisco. Conceptually, the “lean startup” approach wants to ensure that you don’t waste your time when you have a new idea.
The start up scene in india is getting brighter by the day with a wave of entrepreneurship sweeping through the youth of the nation. “Eco-Friendly startups of India” focuses on this bunch to see what innovations are bringing this change and how.
Every enterprise is a business hub. It is like a signal amplification device in an IT network that receives data and transmits or distributes it with some amount of value addition in one form or another. The same is true with every business. One has to realize the purpose of the business. No matter how young an entrepreneur you are, once you have started, it is about doing business.
You’ve been thinking about it, have a plan, it’s been playing on your mind, but you’re just waiting for the right time to start? Well, let’s make this clear right from the word go. We are sitting at the beginning of a brand new year, and it’s time for you to start your thing, too — not because the stars are right or the government policies have changed in your favour but simply because there is no better time to start than now! This was true six months ago, and it is true now. If you wish to walk, you’ll never do it until you stand up!

For entrepreneurs I believe there is so much to learn from this. It is not just about having talent but having the ability to nurture it to achieve greatness. No matter how big a batsman is, he needs partners at the other end. Sachin has nurtured many a player under his wing in a very subtle fashion to create such big innings. He has had to be a mentor, a student, a team player, a tough opponent, a patient and yet an aggressive person, among other things to get to where he is today. He is a classic example of the things one needs to do beyond possessing basic talent.
