Beware!! The age for entrepreneurs is dropping down!!
Yes it is true. Gone out are the days where an entrepreneur was portrayed as a man in his late fifties or early sixties. They have hijacked it all over! They are young, energetic and brilliant minds showcasing the world that it’s their time to take over- Studentrpreneurs. Student are escaping the rat race for plum jobs. Study hard; find a well paid job is all old school now. Names like RiteshAgarwal, Kunal shah, Varun Shoor and many more are perfect illustration of students who all diverged their way to become an entrepreneur. Millennials coming up with innovative ideas who no longer constrain by traditional employment, entrepreneurship provides this forward-thinking generation with a realistic career option.Take the case of Narayanan Palani of K. J. Somaiya who started the in-campus ‘Gandhigiri shop’, a stationery shop with no one manning the counter. One can pick up an item and put the payment in a box provided for the purpose. The success of this venture in campus is giving him the opportunity to think of scaling it up.This trend is not limited to the IIMs or IITs. There is a new crop of entrepreneurs striking out on their own with just one or two years of work experience after having passed out from non-IIMs, including smaller business colleges in Tier II and III cities.
