Learnings from straight from their heart, their mistakes and their new perspectives which emerged while working in their ventures.

1. There is a lot of money these days available for entrepreneurs but entrepreneurs need to differentiate between good and bad money. Money that comes with tough restrictions and regulations should be given preference than loose money without any strings, because those investors that emphasize on compliance with various metrics would surely stand with the business in thick and thin. Money that easily comes also goes easily. That has the fundamentally capacity to alter the structure of business.

2. Second venture is a like a second marriage where experience triumphs hope. Entrpreneurs make a lot of mistakes in their first venture, the market is overestimated, cost of running business is underestimated, no emphasis is laid on regulations present or future, individual capacity is again over-emphasized. All these short-comings are potentially taken care of in the second venture.

3. Entrepreneurs go through emotional volatility-feel extremely euphoric when things come easy, fat pay checks are flowing in but things are not always rosy, despondency sets in when going gets bad, no money is coming, people stop believing in entrepreneur’s ideas. An ideal situation would be take help of mentors who themselves have gone through all this, who empathize with them, who would share their wisdom and present him with a complete picture of the situations which sometimes gets blurred. Not getting carried by euphoria in good times is a an advice given.

When in 1990’s India got liberation and economy was newly opened, India had few billionaire stories, these days we are bombarded by such stories everyday, So the going is getting stuff day by day and what is required is inconqurable passion for the product or service the entrepreneur feels about.

Regarding e-commerce, this a trend which is here to stay,it has touched all sections of society, ample examples of success stories are there even in countries which are on same page with India like Brazil and China. Initially investors had to be convinced about businesses but all this has changed because entrepreneurs have numbers to show.
