‘A way of living'
Is entrepreneurship an inborn trait, an inherited characteristic or a skill acquired through qualification?
Many have their own perceptions and definitions, but if we ask N.Ramesh, Director, Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII), Bangalore, it is “a way of living”.
“Entrepreneurship is not just related to business, but it is a way of living. We are all born entrepreneurs, but when we grew up, we, knowingly or otherwise, tend to move away from it”, he said with a smirk, while speaking at the Entrepreneurship Development workshop at Dr. AER College of Management, Tirupati last week. He rued that entrepreneurship was still misunderstood by the larger sections, given that only 8 to 12 per cent of management graduates were opting to become entrepreneurs in the country.
He concurred with the view expressed by Principal Kalathuru Sudhakar Reddy that India needed more entrepreneurs to create wealth and generate employment.
His mantra for staying ahead of the tribe is thinking and doing things differently. Educational group director A. Jaganmohan Reddy felicitated Prof. Ramesh. Head N. Sree Rajani and faculty Anita spoke.
