If you have a startup idea and dream of becoming an entrepreneur one day, you’re not alone. But like they say, not all of us can have great ideas that make perfect business sense. So how do you convert your idea to reality? Becoming an entrepreneur sounds simple enough - just a leap of faith, right? But it’s a lot more. In fact, what if we told you that there’s science to starting up? And it goes beyond having a startup idea? Interested? Just like you, these MICAns too wanted to be entrepreneurs. Coming from different backgrounds, and studying different courses at MICA, they too had the dream of starting up. In this video, find out how MICA helped them leverage their ideas, develop the right skill sets as well as provide the right opportunities, in order to decide on a future career as an entrepreneur.
In this video, check out MICAns describing their entrepreneurship dreams. Dr. Shailendra Raj Mehta, President & Director at MICA, talks about how the entrepreneurial mindset is applicable in all spheres of any career. He shares how one needs to take ownership of their work in their chosen career.
Next we meet MICAns from different programs, who share their entrepreneurship dreams. With 240 odd students in the batch interested in entrepreneurship, MICA offers a lot of opportunities to budding entrepreneurs. Students with fully formed ideas, half baked ideas and those who are unaware, all find their niche at MICA. With initiatives like Shuraat Bus, and other events organised by the entrepreneurship cell at MICA, you can check out the unique chances MICAns get to develop and hone their startup ideas.
Finally, Dr. Mehta closes the video with an interesting observation on how you can spend your 2 years at MICA figuring out the best option for the future and working on it.
