Shivangini Bhartia on why Entrepreneurship is important

Entrepreneurship: supporting cavemen to spacemen

I think mankind’s first entrepreneur was the human who discovered the importance of fire. Through trial and error and several burns, I am sure he/she realized that fire is a powerful tool as well as a dreadful weapon. Taking a risk on a supposedly unstable idea is what entrepreneurship is all about.

Establishing a business sans risk and experimentation won’t get you anywhere. Okay, you’ll make small progress but if you want to be an overnight millionaire, you’ll need to play the dice. Entrepreneurship is actually the basis of human evolution if you look closely. Necessity is the mother of invention, but who makes sure the invention is shared with all? Yes, the entrepreneurs.

The small businesses in India create 1.3 million jobs every year. Micro, small, and medium enterprises cover 8% of the country’s gross domestic product. It also gives India 45% of the manufacturing output and 40% of the total exports.

According to Forbes, more than 65% of India is under 35 years of age. Compared to the rest of the world, we’re doing well in terms of human resources. Despite the attractive statistics, we are lagging behind. India’s population growth rate is 1.2%, while China’s growth rate is 0.5%. The entrepreneur-to-population ratio of India will lower, if something is not done. The ratio-lowering sounds like nothing much, but believe me, it could turn the Indian economy into the Titanic.

The growing culture of entrepreneurship should be supported. I am no fan of politics, but PM Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative is doing just that. Well-established entrepreneurs should also put in their chips for the upcoming talents. Thanks to India’s entrepreneurial atmosphere, small businesses are getting loans easily. To boost India’s prosperity, we need to make sure that atmosphere is kept alive, protected by an ozone of learned entrepreneurs.
