Where do all the ideas go?

Startups have become a trend in colleges today, thanks to their popularization by government programs and initiatives. Why has it been often seen that many of the startup ideas that sprout up in colleges fail to see their first day in the market?

Well, as we all know, ideas are easy, implementation is hard. Freshmen at the beginning have an idea and zeal that plays a role of stimulant to work out with it. They never know where their idea will let them into in future but they step into it with a bright outlook.

In most of the cases, however, the enthusiasm doesn't last long, it does fade away with elapsing time. Later there is back out from the work seeing a host of challenges that are approaching, or some back out seeing no future in it. This is not the right solution to deal with the problem; one should pursue it till the end. Truth be spoken, it's a genuine thing that happens with most of the newbies, but not all. The problem is not in ideas you are passionate about, there's a problem when you don't execute your ideas. They could be fruitful if they are carried out properly.

The challenges are not simple and single, every challenge has its own risk. Those who are just getting into the game may have to face many hurdles like financing, team building, social problems, decision making and much more. The newbies have a very important lesson to learn in managing these problems to have better strategies later. Some of them successfully overcome these problems and rise with name and fame whereas others fall down. 

There are many success stories which evoke the hidden entrepreneur in you such as of- N R Narayana Murthy, Ratan Tata, Ritesh Agarwal, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Bhavish Aggarwal and many more.These were some successful entrepreneurs and when it comes to those who didn't succeed, none of us remembers their name. The success stories seem very good to listen and it is but there lie immense hard work, passion, perseverance and dedication and of course 'failures', which is an indispensable part of the entrepreneurial journey. This doesn't mean every entrepreneur who fails will succeed. Very few of them who failed are able to bounce back instead of getting a reason to despair and quit. This is awful for this gumptious ecosystem.

Problems during entrepreneurial journey never end, the only thing you can do is to face and sort them out.The one who succeeds take it as a sample of further motivation and the others get demoralized. We all know, only a few startups succeed whereas rest disappear into obscurity. The reason would be that you are lagging somewhere. When you have dreams to flourish with flying colours you should not be depressed of the failures. Rather you should come up with high power to face the problems.
