Renowned authors, CEOs and entrepreneurs met at the Nehru Centre in Mumbai last weekend for India’s first ever festival dedicated to non-fiction. Discussions ranged from the perils of dynastic politics to stand-up comedy and unconventional cinema, centering on the theme of “Be bold, Stay Real”.
If you are a professional and have nurtured aspirations to start your dream venture, here’s some advice from the experiences of people who’ve trodden the path.
Rashesh Shah, co-founder and chairman, Edelweiss
#Constantly adapt. You should always start with a plan but you should be ready to adapt. I think that constant evolution is the only answer. There is no static answer.
# Be financially prudent. Be profitable. There are a lot of entrepreneurs who are very savvy on the product side and the business side, but ignore the financial side of the business.
# Sell your vision to customers, clients, everybody. You have to sell to higher employees. All entrepreneurs have to sell. Their ability, willingness and capability to sell is very important.
