The Entrepreneurship Cell of Miranda House organised an interactive session with Mr. Sharad Kohli, a Harvard Alumni and the founder of KCC group on 19th of September, discussing the various facets of entrepreneurship. Sharad Kohli, who is a known start-up mentor and holds a strong presence as a panelist in many popular TV channels, shared his valuable experience and illuminated the grounds on which entrepreneurs, especially women can excel in the world of business.

The session which had been interactive, in literal sense, started with a very realistic glimpse in a woman’s life which begins from education in a good college, accelerates to a good job and ends in the quagmire of responsibilities after marriage. “They try and remind you, that look, you’re a female first, so you’ve to justify your position as a female”, he said. And consequently, their profession takes a setback.

Entrepreneurship comes to the rescue. He believes, that any woman who has a knack for finance, can trust entrepreneurship as the best option. Women can always unleash their own subjectivity in this world where ‘you are your own boss’. Entrepreneurship also renders flexibility, serving as a brownie point.

As the session became more engaging and the audience asked for their own queries about various facets of start-ups and business, he very beautifully satiated the queries. During this phase, many important aspects of start-ups were covered. When asked about funding, he negated total reliance on outside funding recounting his own experience. He said that even if the idea is brilliant, there are rare chances that an investor will show interest. Everybody starts small, with some seed capital. Dealing with pressure was yet another query, on which he shared that all jobs come with some pressure, entrepreneurship opens doors for some other kind. “Anyone who can’t take risks, cannot do business”, he added.

An important take-away from this session was his stress on the practice aspects over theory. While getting a degree in this field would help you conduct your business more tactfully and professionally, but perseverance and patience sore high as the keys to entrepreneurship. If you pass these barriers, you become a good entrepreneur. The insight of a successful man is surely of great importance to those aspiring for it.

Team E-cell, Miranda House displayed great levels of enthusiasm and were rather mesmerized by the valuable experience they went through. All in all, this session, had been a very knowledgeable and an inspiring palate throughout!
