Let’s start with an exclusive interaction with the founder of CTE Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation, Ms Amishi Mehta spoke about the potential of any business and how she started her own business.
Q. How did you start CTE Foundation? What was your idea behind it?
When I saw most businesses struggle with; making the right connections, getting consistent business, finding the right mentoring or coaching for their journey from Startup to IPO, having the correct information which is required at a nascent stage in business or even after decades to stay abreast with the current trends this inspired me to start CTE Foundation which provides a platform; a safe haven that provides all this and more to Entrepreneurs, Corporates, MSMES, Start-ups, Professionals and to seasoned business owners alike.
CTE is formed to promote Entrepreneurship also join hands in supporting and promoting government initiatives like Start-up India, Skills India and mainly to make a difference by enriching lives through Self-Empowerment, Fight Against Depression, Empowerment, Clean India and Improve Environment and many more cause for concern in the world and for the future generations.
Q. As per your experience with CTE Foundation, what are the major struggle points for start-up founders in today’s time?
She explains the major factors for start-up entrepreneurs or point of concerns were:
- Finding the right connections
- Marketing the Brand the right way
- The turn-around time from starting the business to actual realisation
- Scaling it correctly
- Acess to the right information
- Funding (finding an investor)
- Achieving consistent growth
We ‘The People’ think we can control our lives and just when we believe we can, life gives us a reality check! says Amishi Mehta.
So better than controlling your life, start living it, is the biggest change required in the development of youth. Rather than running towards a big dream without a layout and design, start planning it and be focused towards your dream and start mapping.
Q. Is starting a new business and making it a success difficult today as compared to 5 years back?
There is no right or wrong time to start a business, having said that there’s never been a better time to start a business when our country’s economy is growing stronger by the day. Starting a business needs courage and making it successful even more. We are getting other countries also excited about working with us.
She added further, that the government is taking necessary steps to simplify business processes. Tax reforms such as GST though a learning curve for most businesses will help cut down documentation and eradicate levying of multiple taxes. There is no guarantee that a business will be successful, but a sure short way to fail, is to give up!
Q. What are your views about youth entering into the start-up community?
The younger generation should definitely enter the start-up space and shouldn’t expect quick results. New ideas and innovations will breadth new life into business and will help build the economy from strength to strength. The Youth brings in economic dynamism by spurting competition and innovation. The government also extending its support in promoting Entrepreneurship by introducing various initiatives like “Start-up India” and “Skills India”.
“When you start to see beyond yourself; in business & in life, is when you will succeed!, said Amishi Mehta”.
Q. What do you think is the impact of start-ups on Indian economy?
Start-ups may be small but can play a significant role in economic growth. In a developing country like ours the more the needs, the greater the opportunity. Having more Start-ups creates more jobs, which translates to a better economy.
Q. How can business coaching be important for an experienced businessman?
Business Coaching is necessary at every stage in business. Even a seasoned businessman needs guidance and direction from time to time as no challenge in business is the same. Business Coaching helps you to get from where you are to where you want to be. Acts as an inspiration in stagnation and makes you accountable. Last but not the least business coaching pushes you farther than you can see.
Hope some guidance and motivation we delivered to our youth entrepreneurs. We wish a great life journey and a huge success ahead to the CTE Foundation and Ms Amishi Mehta.
