You need to target your public as per your demand of the venture then accordingly you can step in the path to build terms with them. This function is very crucial especially in the initial phase of any venture. Because many ventures were discarded due to not having public relations that could- help them to transform their idea into reality.

12. Transfer of learning – When you join a venture you work as a beginner and try to learn from the knowledge which has been transferred by experienced entrepreneurs.

In the same way, your knowledge will also be beneficial for future and budding entrepreneurs and employees of the organization. Your transferred knowledge will help your new employees in adapting themselves in the aura of your organization as fast as possible. Such transfer brings maximum efficiency in work.

13. Transfer of  technology and its acclimatization – The transfer of technology generally known as TOT. It disseminates the required technology to the different ventures or entrepreneurial arenas of the world from different corners of the world.

In such a way it plays a very big role in uniting the world and  helps in increasing the economy of the venture which holds this technology. Its adaptation or acclimatization is equally important to function the entrepreneurial activities in correct and progressive order.

Because you can own the technology with monetary terms but can not adapt it with the same, you shall have to be used to it along with your consumers shall also need to be. It is important to impart because it lessens the processing timing and saves a lot of money which we put in human resources.

14. Economical Development – To sustain the economy in entrepreneurship is necessary to keep the work throughout and keep it functioning properly.

Every organization helps in sustaining the work and the economy to balance it. It can be made possible by spreading the venture in different corners of the country and world.

15. Division of incomings or earnings – It is a very necessary function of business to make separate division of complete income.

Every part of the production requires a particular amount of income to function properly, so deciding the part of income for production’s different elements is the work of so much accuracy and efficiency.

Even in the time of losses some functions are mandatory to run, so keeping such expenses while dividing the income is also important. This the responsibility of the employer to keep everything in mind and make the accurate divisions to not to let work get hindered through such mishappenings.

16. Acceptance – This function of entrepreneurial arena will not affect the industrialization directly in its absence but gradually the deficiency of acceptance in the team of the venture may give a discard to the venture.

The ability to accept if something is not being known by the employer or employees of the organization and learning it can only help them to keep growing for longer visions.

When the employer or employees of the venture stop accepting the fact of having aspace to learn more then the gradually the venture starts working on its edge. A venture grows when the team has the will to become the learners throughout.

17. Culture of contribution – A fist is complete with the contribution of all 5 fingers of a hand as a venture is complete with the contribution of employer and each and every employee.

When you contribute while having a zeal in the heart to contribute not to the organization, not to the employer but to the nation,but to the whole world. This must be in the culture where you work, for who you work, by forcing it,one can not keep it for a long time.

This can only be developed in each and every member of the organization by having a thought to give contribution in making a better nation and world.

18. Clarity of target – Every person comes in entrepreneurship with a purpose and it varies person to person. But sometimes some work with no purpose, and there the problem starts happening.

You will need a purpose if you want to create a successful entrepreneurial kingdom. Some have purpose to earn money, some have purpose to earn status, some have purpose to influence others. There is no judgement happening on the purposes, it is an individual’s choice.But having a purpose is necessary to keep growing further.

19. Finding niches – A good entrepreneur never misses an opportunity where a great entrepreneur turns every  chance into an opportunity. You are great in your work when you are able to identify your niche where you are best in it.Knowing in  all spheres is good to work but having your own niche is necessary to grow.

Once you find your niche you can be better to solve others’ problems in your niche. You will have to keep working for it. So if you already know your niche, that’s good, if not, find it and work on it.

20. Building networks – Networking building is the last step of entrepreneurship where our whole production lies-on. Your production will be able to help to maximum consumers of it when your network will be enormous.As larger the network you have, more impact your product will create. Your larger network will bring the change on a huge scale. That you can get through by developing credibility.

When one enters into the business or entrepreneurial world, due to lack of knowledge, due to less ability of pre assuming the losses and many more unpredictable factors become the reason for a great failure of the venture. Then you just need proper guidance.

Here are some main functions that everyone must know before entering into entrepreneurship in order to avoid mistakes and to run it on a better scale. I hope this will help you and make your venture a success.

Solar energy power plant system is easier to establish than windmills. India has been working on the solar system for 50 years and now the rates are very low here in comparison of starting time.  

The government has also launched several schemes to promote this.


Types of solar energy companies

There are three types of companies in the solar industry-

1.) Solar EPC company –   EPC is engineering, procurement and construction. EPC term is for providing end to end solar services from designing the system, procuring the components and installing the project. Under EPC system you set the power plant to third party and purchase the complete component of the developer the same developer offers you the profit on the payment condition. EPC buy material from manufacturer.

2.) Manufacturer –   It makes the necessary material for the solar projects like solar cell, panel, stand etc.

3.) Contractors –   People required to do the actual ground work and this work of contractor. They do physical work for solar business like to set solar panel and maintenance of solar panel etc.

Process of establishing a solar energy company

Research on market –   The first step you need to take before starting a company is to do a research on market conditions, this is the most important step in the success of your business. Do search about raw material for solar plant, market competitors, costs etc.

Make a good combination with govt. Electricity department because you have to sell your electricity to them. You should make good working policy with them.

First thing is to insure that intensity of sunlight must be in good range. If intensity is very low then we can not produce that much energy.

Second thing is flat land must be there. Flat land is ideal condition for arrangement of solar panels . Now days adjustable panel are available for uneven land but we can reduce expenditure by flat land and we can get more energy by flat land.

Third thing is we need shadow free land for panel because shadow can decrease the product of panel.

Before choosing a location you should consult an expert it can reduce your extra expenditure on solar panel.

  • Licence and certification –    

 After deciding a suitable business plan find out how to become certified.It is time to start the process at the corporate level. First of all understand the process of application of licences and certificates.

                               Registration is the preceding step after obtaining the licence and certificate. You have to register your company in the registrar office of your state then they will check all certificate and after getting you competent in all aspects of your company will be registered.

Financial decision are most important activity in business. Financial decision about how much to spend on each activity.

There are many activities depends on fund like land, building, machinery, marketing etc.

60% of the whole money is consumed by land because land’s prices are getting high. Land is the biggest part of this business it plays a big role in this business.

Saving money on solar cell is not right you should not compromise with quality of solar cell because this business takes a lot of time to get profit back it can take about 10 to 15 years till then it is your responsibility to keep your solar panel safe. Best quality solar panel can cost more but if they are good then they will last longer and will keep earning profit by panel.

You must hire a specialist for buying solar equipment because equipment’s utility depend on your land you have to choose the right equipment to save money

Specialist can help you to reduce expenditure on equipment.

  • for example , when social entrepreneur muhammad yunus had started lending to poor people , firstly he had lived with poor people , he had tried to find the real cause of poverty , then he realized that poor people are compelled to borrow money from ” loan sharks” , then he had founded “grameen bank ” which lend to poor people without guarantee ,without collateral.

How Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are impacting modern business era?

How Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are impacting modern business era?

In the last few decades technology has become a very indispensable part of our day-to-day lives. It has taken over almost each and every section of our basic necessities. Individuals’ more than half life has been dependent on the technology. 

From our day to day life tour business environment, everything is rapidly becoming the user of Artificial Intelligence. We are somewhere among the most comfortable generation that we are witnessing the services and receiving the help of Artificial Intelligence to make our lives easier. 

Now every small and big entrepreneur wants to impart the technology in business to get a hype. The maximum part of our technology has been covered by Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. So, we are preferring them more to create a healthy and successive business graph.

But having said that every coin has two aspects, it also has. On one hand Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has made our lives and work easier than before at the same time on the other hand it is decimating our lives in some aspects. We are using the maximum part of AI in our business environment. So, definitely we will be going to get maximumly positive or negative results in our businesses. 

This article is all about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are impacting modern business era? So, before we start to learn, we all must know what is Artificial Intelligence?

What is Artificial Intelligence?

A part of computer science that helps human as a human. It works to makes things faster with the help of technology. It fusses-over to create more most intelligent machines of world. We can have some examples of AI that we use it on a daily basis, eg., Speech recognition, Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant are well utilized and known examples of Artificial Intelligence. 

Let’s learn the both aspects of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning’s impact on our business era.


  • Digital Assistants
  • New innovative businesses
  • Accuracy that helps in decision making
  • Economic Growth

Digital Assistants

Digital assistants have become so common that we don’t even realize that we are surrounded by it. It has created a huge scaled market in terms of users and sellers.

According to the survey so many facts have come in the light. 

According to the report of 2018 digital assistants’ popularity will cross 1.8 billion by 2021 worldwide. Out of them 54% have agreed that digital assistants have made their lives easier. Estimated size of Virtual Digital Assistants’ (VDA) market worldwide is 8.56 billion USD. It may go 15.79 billion USD by 2021.

We use digital assistants in making our work faster and easier like

  • To get to know about traffic conditions of a place where we need to go.
  • To get reminders of meetings and personal appointments.
  • To read out emails and messages.
  • To type something faster than a human typing speed of typing.
  • To order goods, foods, and so more.

Digital assistant seems fun in use and the language it speaks is so friendly and understandable. Through the help of digital assistants’ children also learn to speak clearly.

Estimated Size of the virtual digital assistant (VDA) market worldwide

YearSize (In Billion USD)

New Innovative businesses

Artificial Intelligence begot a market of innovations. It forced humans to utilize their creativity and create some innovation that world actually need. Artificial Intelligence brought so many innovative business innovations. 

Google Assistants, Siri, Cortana, Robots are all the innovative begets of Artificial intelligence only. But we have been so much used to of all these besides robots that all have turned into common innovation.

If we talk about new recent innovation then you must be knowing about ‘Google Tulip’.

If you have heard about it then please let yourself know completely about it. If you haven’t heard yet then please go and google about google tulip. 

Google Tulip is a beget of google that communicates to flowers and fulfill their requirements of water, sunlight and etc. with the help of AI. It was tested in April 2019 and it was successful attempt have had by google. 

It was innovated for tulips in Netherland, a country which produces 12.5 billion flowers per year which is around 50% of all flowers in the world, Scientists believe that flowers communicate to each other by their roots and send signals to each other. Every other person of Netherland wants to keep tulips at home in vases. But it becomes so difficult to keep them fresh and alive.

Accuracy that helps in decision making

Machines takes decisions based on set of algorithms, previous records and data. So, the rooms for errors reduces so much. It creates an environment of accurate outcome with no error which helps in decision making.

When human takes a decision, he connects emotions in decision making and that may hamper business. But machines have no emotions. They work on set algorithms, not on human emotions so they work efficiently in less span of time.

Economic Growth

Artificial Intelligence has not only played a big role in business but it gives a good hype in our economic growth as well. With the induction of AI, its study and education has also needed to be getting started. That creates one more option for students. 

AI begets innovations and innovation is something that every country or nation wants to implement for the public. That brings economic growth.According to the market research firm Tractica, the global artificial intelligence software market is expected to experience massive growth in the coming years, with revenues increasing from around 9.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2018 to an expected 118.6 billion by 2025. (Information taken from google)


  • Dependency 
  • Unemployability 
  • Expensive
  • No room for creativity


On one hand where AI is giving a very good impact on our businesses at the same time on the other hand, it is increasing our dependency on machines. For Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technologies we shall have to dependent of machines. That can hamper the productivity.

And at the same time humans are becoming lassitude by having all works done by being at the same place through google assistants like Alexa.


At one place where Artificial Intelligence is saving our so much time at the other place it is giving big downfall to the employability graph. It is stealing lacks of people’s jobs what they do instead of Google assistants.

As machines can work for long 24*7 hours without a single break. So, in that case businesses would certainly prefer to appoint machines and would invest in them instead of humans. That may bring a huge sales unemployability. We can take a very practical and real example of this. In upcoming years driverless cars will be owing on roads. Thousands of drivers shall have to lose their jobs.


Though AI is giving helpful results in making lives easier, but it is a very expensive proposition. It is not going to be easy to implement in low economical fields. For example, driverless cars are going to be very expensive than normal cars. 

A middle-class man cannot afford it for his comfort. Its maintenance, proceedings are very expensive, we can simply see the robots, robots are highly maintained part of Artificial Intelligence. However, low fund industries and companies cannot entertain Artificial Intelligence.

No room for creativity

Artificial Intelligence works on algorithms, previous reports and data. It works and gives commands as we set machines to command. It doesn’t have a mind to think creatively. SO somewhere AI steals creativity from business. 

If your business is completely entertaining AI then it would be very difficult to keep it creative for a long time. Machines work efficiently not creatively. It performs as we command them to perform.


Definitely Artificial Intelligence can be the biggest change in mankind but at the same time damage that we’d face through this cannot be ignored. AI has power to eradicate maximum poverty of this world. It can explore new dimensions and if we use it precisely and in a useful way changes are adoptable and explorable.

Founder of Zomato Deepinder Goyal on its Growth, Zomato Gold, Food delivery and its Expansion – Zomato turns 11

Founder of zomato

Zomato started off as an online service platform that scanned and put restaurant menus back in the day. They have now diversified into a food delivery company. 

They have now expanded to 24 countries and serve almost 10,000 cities globally. 

On its 11th anniversary, CEO Deepinder Goyal said, “Every anniversary makes us proud of what we have achieved yet, acutely aware of how much there is left to do.”

Business Performance:

The burn rate of the company has reduced by 60% of what it was 6 months ago. However, it reported a loss of $294 million in FY 19. 

Deepinder said, “We achieved tremendous results in optimizing our costs, without affecting new product launches or innovation. We will shoot for market leadership, and simultaneously steer the business towards a more sustainable P&L”. 

Currently, Zomato has 3 main services, Food delivery, Dining out and Sustainability. 

Zomato currently offers food delivery in more than 500 cities across India. 

The order volumes in the top 15 cities have doubled in the last one year. The remaining cities contribute about 35% to the order volume.

Deepinder said that, “Our food @ work business is growing well, and some very large accounts are slated to go live soon. We are already doing 3 million orders a month for food @ work.

Zomato also claimed that its average monthly transacting users have increased by 211% to11.2 million users. While, the average monthly active restaurants have increased by 177% to 119K restaurants. 

Known as the “backbone” of Zomato’s services, by Deepinder, the average monthly active livery partners have increased by 308% in the first half of FY 2020. Currently there are more than 200K delivery partners associated with Zomato. 

Restaurant listing and Zomato Gold:

The restaurant listings on Zomato has gone up globally from 1.2 million in September 2018 to 1.5 million in September 2019. Half of the increase comes from India alone, said Deepinder.

The cities in which Zomato Gold is applicable has increased by 34 cities to 54 as on September 2019 as compared to 20 cities in September 2018. 

From a restaurant owner point of view, gold is not for everyone, said Deepinder. He added, “We always encourage restaurants to determine if participating in Zomato Gold makes commercial sense for them. Some restaurant owners in India campaigned against Zomato Gold last month (#logout campaign); We engaged with the restaurant owner community and rolled out some changes to the program that were widely accepted by most restaurants, as well as users – Thus creating more balance in the program. A number of restaurants who have returned to Zomato Gold post these changes have seen a 100% increase in revenue.” 

In the last 6 months, Zomato has carried out over 65,000 orders for 2,200 restaurants across Delhi and Bengaluru. 

Zomato acquired Hyperpure in 2018. They provide fresh and good quality ingredients to its restaurant partners. They have projected a growth of 10x in the FY 20. 

In July, the food aggregator also started collecting used cooking oil from restaurants, processed it and then delivered it to biodiesel manufacturing plants. Zomato collects 130 tonnes of used oil per month from about 1000 kitchens in Delhi – NCR. They are planning to expand to 5 more cities from October.

What is a Lean Startup ?

What is a Lean Startup?

  • Lean startup is a method used to build businesses based on the beliefs that the entrepreneurs must investigate experiment and test as they develop the products. 
  • It is basically Customer development + Product development. 

10 Important points about lean startup:

1. Lean startup uses validated methods and a hypothesis to assess consumer interest. This will help you to understand the needs and demand of the market. Hence, you can produce accordingly.

2. Lean startup gives a lot of importance to customer related information such as product popularity, Lifetime customer value (Profit attributed to the future relationship with a customer) and customer churn rate (Percentage of customers lost during a specific period).

3. In a Lean startup, experimentation is given more prominence than having a fixed plan. 

4. Lean startups will release their products in a small quantity in order to assess the customer reaction to the product. 

5. The Pivot – A pivot is not necessarily a failure. It means you will change one of the main hypotheses that you had implemented. There are different types of pivot. They are:

  • Zoom in pivot – A single feature in the product now becomes the whole product.
  • Zoom out pivot – It’s the opposite of zoom in pivot. A whole product becomes a single feature in something bigger. 
  • Customer segment pivot – The product was right but the customer segment targeted was not. Here, the product remains the same but the segment changes.
  • Value capture pivot – Changing how value is captured changes everything in the business. (Cost structure, product, marketing strategy, etc)
  • Technology pivot – A new technology can substantially reduce the cost, increase efficiency or performance and allow you to keep everything else the same. (value creation, customer segment, etc)

6. Small batches:

One of the biggest advantages of working in small batches is problems can be identified at a much lesser cost. 

For example – If there is a defect in the physical part, stopping the entire production line can be avoided. 

7. The Andon cord:

The key to the Andon cord is that it brings work to a stop if there is any big problem that requires it to be investigated. 

The activation can bring the production to stop if there is a big issue. This will help the management because it will help in reducing extra cost and increasing the quality too. 

8. Kanban:

Kanban is a visual system for managing work through a process. The goal of Kanban is to identify potential problems in your process and fix them so that work process can be smooth without any bottlenecks.

This is also helps in saving money as it helps in recognizing the problem at an initial stage.   

9. The 5 Whys:

Using the 5 Whys technique helps you get close to the root cause of the problem. It’s a simple and a powerful technique. 

This technique is particularly useful for startups, as it helps them to find the optimal time and speed for making improvements to the detected problems.

10. Minimum viable product:

A Minimum viable product is a product with just enough features to cater to needs of the early customers and this will help in providing feedback for future product development. 

These were some important points about lean startup. Hope you liked it. ☺

Top 10 Reasons Why Startups Fail and How to Avoid Them

Starting a startup is not child’s play. The fact that a majority of them fail in the first 3 years makes it even more terrible. Smart entrepreneurs always learn from their past mistakes and learn from others mistakes too. This is what helps them to hustle! After analyzing and examining why startups fail, we identified the top 10 reasons why startups failed. 

Here is the list of reasons for failure and methods to avoid them:

1. No market need:

Startups fail when they are not delivering the goods and services that the market needs. 

It’s of no use if you have a lot of money, a good idea and good reputation but not fulfilling the needs of the people. 

How to avoid:

  • Essentially, customers should be interested in the model you are pitching. 

Lawyers want more clients. Not a swanky office.

2. Running out of cash:

Cash is like fuel to your business. If you are running out of cash, then your business is in trouble and you will not be able to take it any further. 

Cash flow helps in keeping the business alive. No matter how passionate you are or how great your idea is, you still need to pay your bills, clear your dues and pay your employees. 

Many startups run into problems when they have insufficient funds to run their operations resulting in loss for the company. Or the exact opposite scene is also possible, when a startup receives massive funding and they misallocate the funds. 

How to avoid:

  • Keeping a track of cash inflow and cash out flow. 
  • If funds are required, work well in advance to explore all the funding options and not delay it to the extent that it’s too late.  

3. Market problems:

Every company is driven by the market. It is essential to identify the correct market and find the right solutions for the needs of people. 

The success of a product also depends on the timing of it. 

The e-commerce industry wouldn’t be booming in the early 2000’s like today because the internet speed was really slow and the smartphone industry was still picking up. 

How to avoid:

  • Go out, talk to people and understand the market needs and demand before building a product. 
  • Research and understand your industry properly. It is easier to make changes in the initial level. This will help you save money too. 

4. Business model failure:

Business model is the backbone of every business and it contributes to the commercial and economical success of a business. 

Some companies are so involved in the idea implementation process, they overlook the business model.  

Lacking the skill to analyze and strategize business model is a major drawback. A bad business model can reduce the life span of a business drastically.  

How to avoid:

  • Analyze if your customer acquisition strategy is expandable. 
  • Analyze and estimate your sales and return on investment. 

5. Poor marketing:

Good marketing is understanding your target market and knowing how to get their attention. 

A great product can fail if it is not marketed well.

Knowing how to convert them to leads and ultimately into customers is very essential for the success of a business.

How to avoid:

  • Marketing should start at the initial stage of a product and not wait till it is completed.
  • Hire a good marketing agency that understands your vision. 

6. Poor management team:

Management is like the brain of the company. Having a diversely skilled group of people is essential for the success of a company.

Poor management can represent poor strategic decisions, communication gap between the top management and bottom level employees and bad hiring system.  

It is important for the team to be united and agree around a common vision and long term goals of a company.   

How to avoid: 

  • Communicate well with your employees.
  • Decisions should be backed by statistics and not experience always.

7. Loss of focus:

Founders are usually idea oriented and they mostly get carried away with ides. This could make them lose focus on the other key aspects of the business. 

There should be a fine balance between micro management and macro management as this could also be a reason for the employees to lose focus. 

How to avoid:

  • Don’t get carried away with new ideas. First concentrate on achieving the main goals of the business.  
  • Have a “To do list” and “To not do list”. This will help in eliminating the unnecessary things that are making you lose focus. 

8. Legal challenges:

Sometimes a startup could be doing really well but a legal complication could be the cause of shutting down the company. 

Every field can have different laws and it is important for startups to at least be aware of them. 

How to avoid:

  • Consult an experienced lawyer if required. This will save you a lot of time and money in the future.
  • Make sure your company and employees are compliant with the laws.

9. Disagreement among team members:

Conflict among team members is the last thing any startup would want to see. 

Everyone have their own opinions and their emotional behavior could lead to conflicts. This can destroy company culture and ultimately lead to the failure of a business. 

How to avoid:

  • When it comes to making a business decision, you should make decisions that are best for the growth of the business and rely on the collected data rather than going with the majority.   
  • Shareholder agreement and employee agreement should be in place to handle the matter professionally.

10 Burnouts:

Doing a startup is not easy. Even the most ambitious people burnout in the process. 

Because of the hectic schedule, they don’t have a good work-life balance. Hence, the risk of burning out is high.

Watching your buddies making good money in corporate jobs, posting pictures of family outings and parties could make you rethink about your decisions. 

A majority of the founders cannot take these burnouts and eventually quit.

How to avoid:

  • Make sure you have a good work-life balance.
  •  Health should be your first priority. 

Bad health = No peace of mind = Bad decisions = Downfall of company. 

A startup can experience several challenges presented above. However, it is better if the founders keep an open mind and learn from the failure of others. This can help them save a lot of money and time. 
So these are some of the reasons why startups fail. Hope you liked the article. ☺
