Changing Landscape of Entrepreneurship in Modern World!

Changing Landscape of Entrepreneurship in Modern World!

A generation ago, the word entrepreneur was not in everyday use. It was reserved for self-employed people and risked their capital to create something that they could then sell or trade for a profit. The landscape has changed drastically since then, with many more business owners employing others rather than working alone.

Jaipuria School of Business organized a guest lecture on ‘Entrepreneurship ‘ which Adhish Verma headed. The lecture was conducted on 8th January 2020.

The session started with the introduction to Entrepreneurship, how one should be passionate about making their ideas work, how it has evolved and what it means for entrepreneurs today.

Adhish dropped some light on how in the modern world, entrepreneurship is a way of life. The idea of being your boss and creating something from nothing can be romanticized by taking upon entrepreneurship.

Adhish elaborated on the prerequisites of starting a business and running it profitably.

Some people are born to be entrepreneurs. They have an innate talent that enables them to build or manage a business properly, and they know how to find the right opportunities in which their skills could best flourish. But not everyone is cut out for entrepreneurship, so it’s important you decide if this career path is what you want before taking on huge risks with your future livelihood, said Adhish.

During his interaction, he said, There isn’t just one type of person who’s pre-destined for success as an entrepreneur – but there are certainly some things every would-be successful entrepreneur should possess drive, determination, and resilience. It takes all these qualities plus plenty more to make it big when running your show.

Mr Verma explained it better by citing real-life examples and discussing start-up stories of Paytm, Flipkart, Ola, Uber, and his own experiences as a ‘Startup Guy.

The session was interactive, and Adhish Verma also answered the queries put up by the attendee students.

Jaipuria School of Business emphasizes the advanced learning of students through experience and caters to this idea through seminars and workshops. The guest lecture was attended by students and teachers with a vast attendance where they learnt about entrepreneurship and how it can support your life goals!
