An interest in startups has gained traction in recent years, but a few survive in the long run. A part of the failure is attributed to business uncertainties, market paradigm changes, and escalating complexities in business operations. However, the reasons for failure can be wide-ranging including lack of vision, inadequate communication, insufficient market knowledge, inability to handle risks, and lack of foresightedness. As markets have become highly competitive, starting and running a venture needs the right balance of qualification and experience.
Whether you want to expand your vision or pursue growth in your existing career path, an advanced entrepreneurship program will help you make a difference in applying core entrepreneurial skills and competencies. It will equip you with the necessary skills to deal with market uncertainties and dynamism.
