“Skills & Myths of an Innovative Entrepreneur” managed to educate and motivate. Innovation requires the
“intuitive mind” and the “rational mind” to work in tandem, bringing the forces of hard work, keen
observation, tedious research (reading & experiencing), understanding of trends and gaps to identify a problem and re-frame it into one worth solving. This becomes a viable Startup idea. The session also tackled Myths like “You are born innovative”, “Entrepreneurs are gamblers”, “Good ideas automatically
attract funding” and so on – commonly held beliefs. The most motivating message we were left with – everybody can be innovative, one just needs to develop the skills and behavior to be that – an innovative entrepreneur.
