On 29th October, 2020, he was in conversation with Professor Piyush Tiwari and Priyank Narayan for our Governance Entrepreneurship Masterclass at the Infoedge Centre for Entrepreneurship. He underlined the power of entrepreneurial mindset. Drawing upon his own journey and experiences of other professionals in governance structures, he affirmed that an entrepreneurial mindset is the need of the hour. ‘India is a developing country’ is a fact being passed on from years, generation to generation but the road to become a developed country still seems a long one. Mr. Sisodia emphasized on the lack of entrepreneurial spirit as one of the main roadblocks to the transformation of India from developing to developed. An entrepreneurial mindset is not just limited to creating new ventures, it is a spirit which makes an individual fearless of failure. The competitive lifestyle has left little to no space for thinking and reflecting; the pressure of success is extremely high from childhood. It kills creativity and lowers acceptance of failure. However, to grow as individuals and as a nation, “we need our youth to be job creators and not just job seekers, and that confidence and spirit is what entrepreneurship can teach us”. The entrepreneurial mindset can teach us to dream fearlessly and those dreams can be capitalized to create movements and then any change we seek will be possible.
