Entrepreneurship – quite a fancy term and not new too! Since the onset of this decade, entrepreneurship has been one of the hot topics for debate. An amazingly popular career choice among youngsters, entrepreneurship has fulfilled many dreams seen by young minds. With the amazing perks that it offers, entrepreneurship is increasingly being chosen as a ‘career option’ by youngsters who find a regular 9-5 job not appealing enough.
The culture is evolving at such a rate that colleges and universities in India as well as abroad have started offering full-time courses on entrepreneurship. Between 1990 and 2014, the number of courses being offered has touched an all time high of 2000+. Such is the craze for entrepreneurship.
And, it is justified too! After all, who does not want to be their own boss? Who does not want to enjoy a complete freedom and power over their work schedule? Not to forget here, the monetary benefits that it brings! Every successful company today on the face of Earth was once an entrepreneur’s dream who nurtured it with passion, success and hard work.
