Mr. Mohit Goyal, Founder-Director, Indian Angel Network spoke with simple straight message that we must prepare , develop our own Indian Entrepreneurship Ecosystem wherein failures must not be discussed but only & only success stories are repeated.
He said, we must not ape west rather we have our own motivational way of looking at entrepreneurial day to day life. We in India have enterprising daily wage workers who are the best examples to look beyond small success.
He concluded that we must encourage start up organisations and regulatory authorities can incentivize and waive off certain clauses to encourage them. Failures are first step for building empires provided failures have been worked upon. We are heading towards mission achievement and within a decade we all will be competing with west on abundance of services which we can offer to world!
