Business'

SERIES OF ONLINE WORKSHOPS

For aspiring Entrepreneurs

The economic and social impacts of the pandemic are reverberating globally: amid greatuncertainty, we can all foresee a very different world for a long time to come.

At the same time, the challenging times is creating opportunities for many as more people are going towards entrepreneurship. Contrary to normal times, in a crisis, the dynamic of risk / reward shifts dramatically-the real risk becomes doing nothing, especially when peoples jobs, or livelihoods, are at stake. A crisis pushes people out of status quo and makes them innovative. A crisis shifts people towards business.

For most of the people, starting a business is the way out but don't know what to do next.

Starting a business entails understanding and dealing with many issues-legal, financing,sales and marketing, human resources, and much more, besides the commitment and challenges involved.
