Starting your own venture in India requires detailed planning and a disciplined approach. Understanding and incorporating a diverse set of factors is necessary for ensuring sustainability in the new venture. The product or service one is planning to offer, market size, revenue, profit targets and the competitive forces are among the most important factors that need to be incorporated in the planning exercise.

Planning, disciplined execution, team work and tenacity are critical for entrepreneurial success. Infrastructure, government regulations and availability of finance at various stages of growth are among the bigger challenges that all start-ups face. History provides numerous cautionary tales of failure. There are lessons to be learnt from a number of start-ups that began with big fanfare but ended as damp squibs within a short span of time.
