Entrepreneurship is not about dreaming but to act. Sharing of knowledge and support among themselves is a must.
IMPHAL, May 30: Dynamic Manipur in collaboration with Globizs Web Solutions and MIMS, MU organized its second workshop event series ‘Lean Startup worshop’ at Hotel Yaiphaba Thangal Bazar Imphal here today.
The workshop is organized with the objective of building up a Startup eco-system in Manipur which can help in creating more number of successful entrepreneurs thereby solving the unemployment problems and bringing a sustainable economic solution.
Managing Director of Globizs Web Solution Roshinikumar Yambem and Business start up expert from USA, CEO Zeenova Inc and Co-Founder and VP Eng and Strategy, Akasia Inc. Gautam Thokchom spoke on the needs in starting up a business during the workshop.
Gautam Thokchom, CEO Zeenova Inc and Co-Founder and VP Eng and Strategy, Akasia Inc. said that entrepreneurship is an absolute freedom what a man wants whatever he wants to do. It is not about dreaming but to act. Entrepreneurs should not be considered as people who are earning money for themselves, but as people who are contributing to the society by providing employment to many jobless.
He said advised the aspiring entrepreneurs to not lose heart at the initial failure, but to work harder.
Delivering his speech as resource person, Managing Director of Globizs Web Solution Roshinikumar Yambem said for every entrepreneur, learning ‘failed fast, succeed fast is a must. A business cannot succeed without experiencing failures in the initial stage. Success stories of many entrepreneurs were scripted after experiencing failures.
Entrepreneurs are new kind of breeds among human beings. Society is the stakeholder of the entrepreneurs’ business enterprise. When the entrepreneurs fall down, the society too falls down. In the context of Manipur, knowledge sharing and mutual co-operation among the entrepreneurs is very poor. For achieving success in business, knowledge sharing and support among the entrepreneurs is a must, he observed.
He said that a budding entrepreneur, before launching his product, should have a clear cut long vision, good business plan and the scope of customers who would use the product. Without customers, every business flops.
He said that the lean startup event is an endeavour to extract the ideas of global business methodology and apply the same in our local business context.
