R ecently, I was at a conference session in IIT Bombay E-summit with one of the young Indian entrepreneurs Divyank Turakhia, who truly denotes journey of entrepreneurship. During the chat, he said something which really got me thinking – “passion for something will get you into business but you can only go long if you are making money. If you are not aiming for commercial success from the day one (funded or otherwise), you can’t carry on for long.” And how true it is, passion can be a great kickstarter but, eventually, it is your pride that you need to put on the line and do what it takes to make your business successful.
