Empowering Start-Ups – Nashik Entrepreneurs’ Forum 2019

Start-Up has suddenly become a hype in India. People embark on to build an enterprise from scratch. It has become a fashion to be an Entrepreneur. Government’s initiative, Start-Up India has truly contributed in building an effective ecosystem of business. There has been a significant increase in the numbers of Start-Ups in India. According to a survey, Start-ups in India see 108% growth in funding in 2018: NASSCOM. India might have become the Third Largest Start-Up Ecosystem. Though the inception of Start-Up has seen a major growth, their success and sustainability remains low. Only 1 in 1000 start-ups sustain in India. The major cause being the lack of Innovation. Uniqueness has certainly lost its pace in the monetary run. Other causes being lack of technologies, funding, poor business ethics and deficit of skilled team. People are mostly engaged in early-stages of Entrepreneurial activities. Only the ones that keep innovating and improvising survive ahead to become a successful enterprise.
