The death of Entrepreneur & Entrepreneurship

The death of Entrepreneur & Entrepreneurship

What amazed me was that why a person with a Net worth of 25,000 crores (nearly US 3.6 billion) could commit suicide, because of the pressures from an investor. More amazing was the fact that the value of assets were more than the liabilities. Crazy?

This made me think. Today's business is run on someone else's money while creating assets for myself or my company. The smarter one is better. Does this thinking needs the disruption ?

Every single entrepreneur is looking for funding. Which means someone else's money to make money for myself/my company. Why are we looking to do business with someone else's money? Is growth so important to Entrepreneurs?

Huge Private funds, borrowing from banks or private investors are the norm. What would have been the problem if VG Siddhartha would have sold some of his assets to grow his business? And hence would have not gone through the intense pressure of investors/banks sitting on his head. Is growth so important that one is willing to lose peace of mind as an entrepreneur ? And then find solace in "that meditation", "that chanting" ..........

And there are others who blow away investors' money and then file for bankruptcy or cry "business failed"/losses. Please note even money borrowed from the bank is some innocent person's life savings.

I believe that Karma always finds a way. Entrepreneurs need to probably get back to a new disruptive old school thinking.

"I failed as an Entrepreneur" that's' what he said, while the world of entrepreneurs felt sad, lost, and depressed. And many entrepreneurs connected since this was/is the "Norm ?". Maybe today's way of doing Entrepreneurship is failing you.

The world which we see with our physical eyes might be different from what we see from our Heart.

"Realize that everything connects to everything else."     Leonardo DaVinci
