    • My personal view, with global recession knocking on our door steps, this is the right time to innovate / start-up!

    • There is no recipe for entrepreneurship or a magic potent to become a successful entrepreneur…
    • Its just your passion, perseverance (A decade minimum) & presence of mind that can make you an entrepreneur & a successful one too…
    • Better invention & Innovation a must…

  • 10. Perception of customers about the Tech Sector
    • You can’t ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new – Steve Jobs
    • Before launching a new product or service please wear the customers’ shoes.
    • If you are really excited about the offering & you will pay for it too, then just start shop!
    • Dump the analysis & market research, go on your gut feel, your market understanding & research & just do it!
  • 11. Message to students
