He highlighted the top 3 qualities necessary for the success of a Start-Up; team building, risk-taking and entrepreneurial spirit. He advised students that earlier they start their own business the greater the chances of failure and the major reasons for it are lack of experience, lack of capital, failure of the idea and inability to deliver. However, he suggested that it is good to fail fast and recover versus failing after a long time. He elaborated that the passion for creating start-up businesses is formed by a series of successes and through self-motivation. He explained the life stages of business in connection with the life stages of a human being.

He ended the session by stressing on the need for a Start-Up core team to move quickly from their initial stages of Forming, Storming and Norming towards Performing
