This section consists of 9 entrepreneur stories who have no formal training in business. They learnt by observation, experimentation and application of mind. These people never believed in just luck as Prem Ganapathy (Dosa Plaza) says that Luck hai lekin ghar pe baitha rahega to luck nahin milega. Koshish karega to hi luck saath dega. Prem has always believed in providing better services and building strong relationships. He is more inclined towards the solutions and not problems.

Kunwer Sachdev (Su-Kam) believed that important stuff of life is not what we learn in a classroom but what we learn outside. Sachdev says that it’s not just your decision that develops you but the mistakes that you commit because from there you learn something. Also, he believes in working towards his passion.

If you want to start a business, find out something which is not available and which people want.

One of the entrepreneurs M. Mahadevan (Oriental Cuisine) says that never get complacent. Even if ten times the customer gets a good meal. The 11th meal, the kebabs are not good. But one will only talk about the 11th meal, forgetting the first ten good meals. That is human nature. So never compromise!
