India - The frontrunner in creating Business Professionals

It’s the twenty-first century. And certainly there is no cliché for becoming a successful entrepreneur. In context to entrepreneurial skills, an entrepreneur is someone who is a risk taker, decision maker, a great leader, and an innovative thinker. A business professional leads from the front, and as we see there are hoards of people who has emerged as dynamic entrepreneurs. Indian business professionals are the front-runners in this race.

To make it more clear, Indian influx in Silicon Valley started in the late 1970s. Today, 15% of the startups are founded by the Indian business professionals. What is more significant is the population of these professionals which accounts only 6% in Silicon Valley. In Silicon Valley, to not so surprisingly surprise, Indians are dominating immigrants currently! The most influential business leaders from India are Pichai and Nadella, the Head of Google and Microsoft, respectively. Market competitions are cut throat and everybody is chasing after the market constraints.

What makes Indian business professionals stand out of the crowd? Once you start looking closely to this, it is not a constraint. Indians work more efficiently. Indians follow a philosophy of ‘the early morning has gold in its mouth’ which is a translation of German proverb. Waking up early is reportedly a lively method of working efficiently. Rising early inculcates a habit and ability to accomplish beyond imagination or otherwise stable life. Mornings used very wisely, which can be used to build a life style - happier, wiser and productive. While many of the people are in still in bed, some people are considerate in scoring diurnal victories, in order to improve their lives be it health wise, careers, or personal lives, without detriment of their saneness. Yes, time is very crucial, but it is also very crucial to understand the significance of mental sanity. Time spent should not be wasted, perhaps, it is us who gets worked up, eventually. Waking up an hour early can boom your life, to live an hour more. PM Shri Narendra Modi, starts his day at 5:00 am, according to the site to carry out his daily routine of Yoga, pranayama, which makes him spend the entire day more efficiently. The founder of Reliance Jio, Mr. Mukesh Ambani starts his day at 5-5:30am. These small ideas makes Indian business professionals great leaders in the world.

Except the entrepreneurial skills and innovation, India is a frontrunner in creating efficient leaders who makes a great significance in Indian economy. It makes India better, while India becomes a job creator, instead of job seeker. Indian business professionals are adapting personal skills of living vibrant and a healthy life, which places gigantic impact on professional life as well. Cheers to the impressive achievements of Indian Business Professionals, and taking India to another level of attainment.

Who is an entrepreneur?
In today’s context we hear a lot about entrepreneur, entrepreneur management, many scholars have many definitions to it but in simple terms, they are -

  1. Who are risk takers,

An entrepreneur works an as employee, runs a business and takes all the risks and rewards that comes into the business, puts his own ideas, and is commonly seen as a leader and innovator of new ideas and processes.

 Most primary factor is Indian economy – Service sector induces in the growth of Indian Economy in recent times.

All these lead to Indian economy advances and came forth contributing security in terms of–

(4), than being a Nation of job seeker.
Bringing in this change, the outcome of can closely be gauged with few success stories who are bound to bring change - 
  • Kolkata-based Green Clean Media Works generates Rs 1 lakh revenue per month by installing Adbins in residential complexes
