The next prerequisite makes it to the author’s list for obvious reasons as is suggestive from his views on the same. The need to raise a question to ourselves – How is our business idea or plan different compared to the rest who’re already ahead of us and ruling the roost in the market? In short, how effective will our strategy to combat stiff competition be?

What are we planning to do differently to gain competitive and strategic advantage over our competitors? What are the prospects that our strategy will yield desirable and fruitful results? As always, this prerequisite always brings along additional baggage of ifs and buts with it.

The seventh prerequisite is penning down our business model and analyzing it for visible and hidden defects, advantages, and feasibility. A gleeful glance at the business plan time and again, before and after the completion of the draft does no harm as it may lead to identification of more glitches in the model. The next prerequisite requires the entrepreneur to be cautious while choosing the right investor. This is the most trickiest aspect associated with a venture such as a start-up.

Even the sharpest of minds could fail us in our venture when the investment is not channelized efficiently in a structured and well planned manner.

The concluding part of the book sees the author lending his views on reasons for failures of start-up and the lessons in entrepreneurship from the Indian IT industry.

This compilation is no less a holy book for wannabe businessmen except that the glamour element is irrelevant. To conclude, entrepreneurship is about self confidence, remaining flexible, goal oriented and opportunistic, a right blend of discipline with a sense of freedom, working hard, shedding egotist tendency, and loving money.

Choosing the team involves consideration for complementary composition, proven competence, multitasking capability, shared vision, transparency, personal integrity and mutual trust, questioning ability and taking disagreement in stride, resilience, and sense of humor.
