THE STRUGGLES FOR ESTABLISHING A STARTUP AND THE MESSAGE TO THE BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR.
One of the biggest challenge that the founder was changing the mindset of the doctors. The line of medicine was different, and the doctors needed to be updated with the new change. The challenge was also to fulfill the expectations laid on him, to satisfy the people involved in the company.
“What we have learned is that if you are persistent, and show the results then people will start to listen. Now, we have support from the large number of doctors who agree to our work. It takes work and effort daily, and things start to fall in line.” says the founder.
Its better to try and fail, rather than sit around hoping for a good result. If you have an idea, and you believe that you have the potential, than go ahead with it. Fear of failure is something that holds us back from bringing the best out of us. But if you have what it takes to be an Entrepreneur, you will have to take the risk.
