Why startups failing badly everywhere we look?

Entrepreneurship is often lonely, risky and full of doubting. One has hundred reasons on not being successful. Each entrepreneur will undergo repeated and possibly even bigger challenges than their cohorts. What is imperative, is to not lose faith and continue. The seasoning of each entrepreneur hones with time.

The more adaptable they are, the extended resilience they exhibit, the better confidence and a powerful inner self is invoked to take upon the dynamic newer challenges. Unlike their cohorts some select leading Indian start-ups like Flipkart, Inmobi, Quikr, Zomato, Olacabs, Paytm, Snapdeal, MuSigma etc. who took on bravely, and firmly decided to chart unexplored territories.

Their founder entrepreneurs had a distinctive engagement in their journey of entrepreneurship embracing organizational medley, stealthily infusing strategic management, design thinking, caressing organizational science and art of decision making at each stage of their firm life cycle. At the global level, we know more about Amazon, Facebook and Tesla than our homegrown entrepreneurs having tasted success despite being born in a very unpredictable and uncertain world.

This journey is not easy. It is full of challenges, obstacles, wrong turns, dead-ends, chaos and failures.

No one is sure for success in their first attempt. Initial failures and the power to integrate learning for newer discoveries becomes pertinent for existence.
