Often young women and men reach out to me via email or Linkedin or at events asking me how did I decide to startup, whether the idea they have is worth the plunge or in some cases having just started do I think they are on the right track.
An interview I gave few months back at a BusinessWorld event captures my thoughts on entrepreneurship really well so I am posting it here. Hopefully it will help those women and men who are on the brink of taking the decision - to startup or not to startup. Do indeed decide to Startup and create something Unique of Value. The video addresses topics such as - "women in tech", "are startups for Indian women", "what are India specific challenges faced while starting up", "what sectors are ripe for innovation in India", etc.
One key message I have for all aspiring entreprenurs
The confidence and passion that - "this is how this problem must be solved" and "this is why I am the best person in the world to solve this"; must come from within. Without that internal conviction its very hard to startup and sustain. Everything else - family support, finding a team, building the MVP, raising money is secondary. If you dont have the belief that you can do it, then there is no way you will be able to do it!
