Entrepreneurship has long been associated with adjectives such as innovative, flexible, dynamic, creative, and risk-taking. It involves intentional creation of value by an individual or a small group of partners. What makes this sector unique is that it invariably challenges the status-quo and tries to identify the hitherto unaddressed needs of potential customers. Everything often begins with a ‘gut’ and then the reality of finances, policies, execution kick in soon after. Going against the societal norms of financial security, early entrepreneurs need grit alongside gut!
