Probably the most plundered synonym of this day and age. A word thrown around so casually and recklessly by every Tom, Dick and Harry aspiring to leave a mark on this little world of ours. Something that has come with this new world mentality, where creating a job is a more viable option than looking for one. But then again, what gives me the right to go on ranting false prophet to this claim? Well, for one, attending the AIESEC Youth To Business Forum 2014.
One day, eight hours and over 500 delegates – All there for one reason and one reason only. To know what it means to actually be an Entrepreneur, a leader in every sense of the word. A visionary’s pilgrimage if you will lead by the who’s who of today’s industry. Mr Sunil Sanghai – Managing director of HSBC, Mr Shailendra Singh – Managing Director of Percept ltd, and Mr Ajeet Khurana of Angel Investors’ only to name a few. As they spoke about their journeys, struggles and joys to getting where they are today, and what it means to be a true Entrepreneur.
This is not a career couching seminar, it is an experience, and a once in a life time one at that. Everybody wants to make it big. Everyone wants to touch the stars, but have you taken that first step yet? Well, speaking on behalf of these 500 delegates at the Bombay Stock Exchange on the 25th of April and myself included – We certainly have.
