Truly age can’t be the restriction to do something out of the box. Here we are discussing the kids who are running startups in India successfully. They have set out to break the stereotypes regarding kids and carve out an interesting and unique startup in India. In other words, we can say Everyone is having potential, the thing which needed is to shape our kids in a good manner. Because “Kids today are the Icons Tomorrow“.
Before proceeding further let me introduce a nice quotation ‘To any entrepreneur: if you want to do it, do it now. If you don’t, you’re going to regret it.’ – Catherine Cook, Said correctly we wait for things to happen and then we will start something.
Moreover, in India, youths are having thinking that they will do something after graduation, work for any company and earn a decent amount of money and with this capital think of starting something. But its too late and end up our career doing to 9 to 5 job every day. Because challenges will never gonna leave us alone. Then why don’t take the risk and start something? Even if we fail, we will be going to get some experience from this failure which will help later in future.
The days are gone when students prefer to pursue their career for working a big MNCs. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the students or youths craze about entrepreneurship. Even govt. is helping the students by introducing a course of entrepreneurship at the school level.
