My idea for Zero to Crore Webinar was to share the practical bits of advice, ideas, and tools with the people who’d the dream to start their own business to leverage their geniuses but refrain doing it due to the fears, dilemmas and their inability to organize the resources that will help them get started.

All the resources, strategies, tactics and hacks shared during the webinar are based on the learnings from the successful companies, knowledge shared by successful founders, and my own experience of building and launching half a dozen companies in past one decade.

This blog post summarises the key learnings, lessons, link to the webinar videos and workbook download link for you to learn what we shared during the webinar so that you can use these to make a wise choice by organizing your business in a way that helps you learn, launch, build and grow your business to achieve your entrepreneurial dream.

Webinar 1: The Entrepreneurial Mindset

On the very first episode of the webinar, I discussed what it takes to become the entrepreneur. The right and wrong reason to become an entrepreneur. Why you? Why now?

1. Every successful entrepreneur started their business for a solid reason – some wanted to create a larger impact in the society through their work, some felt that entrepreneurship will help them better leverage their geniuses, some wanted to have a better lifestyle, etc. What is yours?
2. Entrepreneurs are born and they are made too. Just to cite an example the alumni of Harvard University control over USD 3 trillion of global wealth.
3. Entrepreneurs either use their skill out to build the business or they discover the idea and build resources to start their business.
4. Every startup business goes on a sequential journey starting from Idea, prototype, validation, MVP, product, launch, and growth. It is important to know the journey well.
5. Entrepreneurs work on the single focus on creating values leveraging capital, capacity, customer, and expertise in a more innovative and new way in the marketplace.
6. Every successful business has three key ingredients: something interesting to sell, someone interested to buy and someone interested to pay for it.
7. During the webinar, I shared 5 templates which can be used to validate any idea to gauge its worthiness to pursue further.
