The impact entrepreneurs have on economic opportunities goes above and beyond what is presented. Entrepreneurs drive innovations, create new job opportunities, develop new products, services and enter as well as create new markets. However, the developmental landscape for entrepreneurs proves to be challenging in a country like India.
Failures and setbacks are something entrepreneurs must overcome. Challenges, failures, and difficulties are a part and parcel of the world of entrepreneurship. One of the major challenges an entrepreneur in India faces, is the accessibility of funds and investments. The Indian Funding eco-system is not favourable for entrepreneurs and this further leads to difficulty for entrepreneurs to set up their businesses in the initial stages. Nevertheless, despite all the difficulties encountered at the many stages from beginning to end, entrepreneurs overcome such adversities and emerge as successful businesses.
Entrepreneurs play and important role in the growth of a country’s economy. They contribute to increasing the country’s national GDP. Entrepreneurs are the pioneers of growth and excellence.

ET takes on the tricky challenge to measure the success of a brand either
by segregating them by sector or the market position they occupy. The
series aims to identify and jettison stellar brands for customers.

This brand book examines the fundamental characteristics of these promising entrepreneurs: What makes these entrepreneurs unique? What skill sets do they possess, which have established them as a niche? What are the latest innovations that have left a lasting imprint on consumer’s minds? Why are these entrepreneurs considered promising?
