The sixth day of the Induction program was on Entrepreneurship – being your own Boss!!Two great Speakers–Dr. Poonam Sinha, Director (EE) NIESBUD, a Government Organization and the other who followed his passion and reached pinnacle of success in his Business, Mr. Amit Hooda, Director, The Wedding Connections, Amit Hooda Experiences, The EventZ & Crimson Park Hotels & Resorts
Dr. Poonam Sinha shared information on the few Government Initiatives for the training and development of Entrepreneurial skills. She also shared some real-time stories of small-scale Entrepreneurs. She stated that for those having a good business sense and a workable proposal, it is no great task to secure government funding to back his/her project.
Mr. Hooda stated that the first step to becoming a successful Entrepreneur is to recognize, and own up to, the challenges that one faces while converting their ideas into a business proposition. He shared some of his personal experience and shared tips on raising finance for initiating/sustaining own business, how to pitch to the investors, in situations where they are unable to pool funds from usual lending resources.
Both the speakers emphasised on collaborating entrepreneurship with ideas. The journey towards being an Entrepreneur begins when one has the conviction in his/her ideas, has the courage to face the challenges and overcome them and use their core strength to the maximum to reap benefits in the process. By going beyond our comfort zone, one can achieve miracles if one is confident, determined and is focussed on making his ideas a success.
