Ain't no EUREKA!

Entrepreneurship or ‘Starting Up’ as we like to call it, is no longer an elite pursuit of Ivy league college pass outs. After Cricket and Bollywood, Entrepreneurship has firmly taken the third place in our post dinner conversations. Starting up is now a career option for many whilst still in college, and for others, it is a way to move from a corporate canvas, to painting their own business legacy.
If you are one of those, who roam with an IDEA in your Pocket, or in a Google Drive Folder or in the spaces of your mind, then pick up this book and validate your IDEA.
