While the data is getting analysed I would like to speak about my observations.
I could write about the challenges faced, the excellent team that I got to lead or the cities that we travelled to, but as a closing post l thought of talking about what is close to my heart #entrepreneurship..
Having been in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India and because of my profile, I have had the opportunity to interact with the best of the minds in the technology space, the entrepreneurs that have built the best of the products..but what I saw during my travels has left me stumped..
Entrepreneurship at its best in tier 2-3 cities.
Yes this is what I saw, right from Amritsar to Kanyakumari, these people were doing multiple things, they would have a shop, then be in real estate or forex trading to owning jewelry business as a second business. The zeal & passion that they showed for the business, why should I settle for doing one thing when I can do multiple things and grow..
Many of the towns that we visited had some traditional business going on for generations, but the new generation gave it a modern twist, be it the baker son’s who now runs a bistro for the younger crowd, or the kundan jewelers showroom from a diamond manufacturing family..
